So, 2017 – what a year!
This year has really been a tough one, and if I knew at the start of the year how tough it would be and how strong I would have to be to get through everything, I just wouldn’t have thought it possible.
Every New Year’s Eve once the clock strikes midnight, I think to myself, this year has got to be better than last year, but oh my god, 2017 has been one of my hardest and toughest years yet and has tested my courage, strength and patience to the limit.
And yet, I keep surprising myself, as I have got through all of the bad stuff, and come out the other end. It has been hard, there has been so many tears, tantrums and laughter along the way. I have found out a lot about other people and found out a lot about myself that I didn’t realise.
I have gained a lot of confidence this year after losing 5 stone following the Slimming World plan – I feel so much better about myself now, but I know I still have a long way to go on my weight-loss journey, so I will keep going with this in 2018.
I have loved putting my heart and soul into my Blog this year too. I love writing so much, and the fact that there are people out there who actually read and enjoy my writing makes me so happy. I want to carry on blogging in 2018, I would love to develop my little Blog even further and work with some more amazing brands, as I have this year.
I would really love to go to some Blogging Events in 2018 – I have been invited to some amazing events this year, but due to work, have had to turn them down, which made me super sad. I really hope 2018 is so much more of a positive and happy year than 2017 has been.
Lots of Love
PS – I have been a very good girl this year, so if you could pop some lovely Elemis skincare goodies in my stocking that would be amazing!
