Goodbye 2014.

2014 has officially drawn to a close and I've been doing some reflecting upon the past year. 

What a year its been.

I can easily say that I am not the same person I was a mere 12 months ago, what a scary thought that is. At the start of 2014 I had no confidence or self belief, I didn't believe that I could do anything and would hide things about myself in order to fit in with other people. I was struggling with personal issues and was pretty much feeling crap all the time, but I couldn't see it. Its not until I've looked back that I realise that I was not happy. 

Now don't worry this isn't a sappy story, nor am I demanding attention or seeking sympathy, merely giving some background into the change that I've undergone. 

This year brought with it many endings & many brand new beginnings. I graduated from university, a bittersweet experience as my hard work finally payed off and I finished with a 2:1 honours degree in Theology  & Religion. But I also said goodbye to many friends and a comforting routine that I had known for the past three years. 

Many friendships were tried and tested, some now lost and some stronger than ever. I booked an adventure, a three month trip that will commence on April 1st of this year, and I set myself my biggest challenge yet. A half marathon, something that previously was only possible in my dreams and yet I reached my financial target and beat my goal time. 

My confidence and self worth has escalated beyond belief this year, and I can finally say that I'm beginning to feel happy with who I am as a person. 

I'm by no means there yet, but I'm a heck of a lot closer than I was. 

Now I can't wait to see what this year holds, I know 2015 has the potential to be the best year yet! Heres hoping I make the most of it. 

What have you learnt about yourself this year?
How do you hope to grow in 2015?

Speak Soon
