What a bloody year mind! I feel I say this at the end of every year, but 2016 in particular just seemed to be an absolute shit storm didn't it?! Im always one to constantly reflect and look back on the bad things that have happened over the year, but today I'm going to list the good things that have happened this year. Hopefully I'll look back on this at the end of 2017 and realise things aren't always as bad as they seem!

I became more confident with my blog - this time last year id completely fallen out of love with blogging, but this year in particular I've watched it grow, fallen in love with taking photos and sharing them, it's very satisfying when you publish something you've worked so hard on.

My Granddad passed away - trying not to focus on this too much, as obviously this can never be a positive. However, it's brought our family much closer together, we're doing things together more, having family gatherings more, and that can only be a good thing. I love them a lot. 

I moved house - something I found really super difficult this year, but did it and feel much better for it. We live in a lovely place now, and it's made a big difference. 

I opened up more - a weird one, but I say how I feel a lot more, if I don't like how I'm being treated, I say it. I guess you could say I've got a back bone now, and there are a few people surprised by this, mainly the people who treated me like shit. But once i'd stop caring, I felt much better. I need to keep going with this one, it's made me much more relaxed and less anxious. 

I went to bloody Mexico! - I actually did it, little old me that only goes to Spain or at most a 4 hour plane journey, hopped on a plane with just her boyfriend and did a 9 hour journey, it was the best holiday of my life. 

I was more independent - a silly one, but I was never able to go anywhere on my own. Even to Tesco, i'd have to take someone with me because I was so anxious. This year id travelled to so many different places to go shopping on my own, I even went to get my nails done on my own, and this was a huuuuuge deal to me! 

Exciting future - and finally, something that I've got to keep hush hush for a good while until it happens, but there are so many exciting things happening in 2017, that Ive been planning for and organising in 2016, so watch this space, I can't say much, but it's mental!!



  1. I love how honest this post is! It seems as thought you've had your fair share of ups and downs but you've achieved great things! I hope you have the best 2017 sophie x
