I’m not gonna lie, I’m happy to see the back of 2015. I’m very happily going to spend the last evening of the year drinking Prosecco saying goodbye to pants year and welcoming 2016 with open arms.
I don’t mean to be this negative but I feel like this isn’t a year where I’ve grown much. I have grown, of course, because everyone does in a year. But, I haven’t grown in a way I’ve wanted too. I’m no closer to owning my own house, I’m more poor and I’ve learnt a lot from some really horrific experiences. These aren’t neccissarily experiences that have happening directly to me but I’ve had to help pick up the pieces; it’s been horrid. I’ve also learnt a lot about the people in my life and that in itself hasn’t been a pleasant experience. Hey, who said growing up was fun?
There has been positives though. The best thing that’s happened this year is becoming a dog momma to my beautiful hound, Rufus. I love having a dog back in my life and having the gift of unconditional love back. It’s a truly beautiful and wonderful thing being a dog owner. Although at times, it’s really hard, especially when you first bring puppy home, but I can honestly say it’s worth it and he completely makes my heart melt.
Another positive has been starting Blogger & The Geek. I can’t tell you how glad I am that I took the plunge to join the blogging world and set this little site up. It’s bought me so many opportunities already and I’ve made some wonderful friends from it. Especially my two gals, Reni and Sarah who truly have become great friends over the past few months.
I’m hoping 2016 will bring more opportunities and will be a much more positive year. I’ve got big plans for 2016 including starting a canine animal course to follow my real passion, which of course, is dogs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m in a good place with my current job at the moment as it’s the least stressful job in the world but I know I’ll be bored within a year. So, why not get ahead of the game and try something I really want to do? I also want to get a chunk of a house deposit saved and feel more financial stable. I know people say money doesn’t make you happy but it sure does help at times.
So here is to 2016! Let’s wish for positive, healthy and a good year for us all. For all my readers, thank you for following me on my little blogging journey so far and investing your time in me as a person. It’s truly appreciated and I wish you a positive and wonderful 2016.
