A reflection on 2016 and the year to come


2016 has been a pretty funny year for everyone I think. It’s been a pretty horrendous year worldwide; many famous faces have died, there have been huge upheavals for Britain and America (who knows if they were good decisions or not) and light has been brought to the obvious divide in the countries. Honestly there has been a lot of worrying, unrest and violence across the globe; which has impacted everyone, at some point, in some way.

But for me personally I’d say 2016 has been a pretty decent and significant year. After the previous two years being particularly horrible causing a massive upheaval and brought change and worry into our lives. I think this year I’m personally feeling my best and I think this year has been the cause.

I honestly feel I’m starting to get a sense of myself and feeling confident, that I truly know who I am and becoming. I’ve found new interest and realised things about myself that I’d never really paid much attention to or that I really wanted to delve further into. Both good and bad but all round enlightening.  I feel working has really played a part in it all. It’s caused me to force myself into things that I was hiding from doing, no matter how seemingly insignificant, at the beginning of the year. I feel this year has given me the boost to do start doing the things I want to without myself holding myself back. Maybe 2017 is the year where I just keep improving.

In 2017 I want to:
  • (Finally) learn to drive
  • Go on holidays with my friends
  • Get more tattoos (on my own)
  • I want to dye my hair something completely different
  • Go to a festival
  • Put up some shelves in my room

I want to keep on learning things about myself and delving further into the things that interest me, no matter what other people think. A new year isn’t the only time to focus on yourself, make you a priority of every day in your life. Do the things that make you happy.

Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and the New Year brings you only good things!
