This year turned out to be possibly one of the best, and one of the worst of my life. I have learnt in life however to take the bad with the good, and accept that is just how it works sometimes. In some respects I have had an unbelievable year; I have loved, I have satisfied my wanderlust flying away a few times, I attended my first London Fashion Week, I have met some incredible people, and attended more parties than I could possibly recall. Then on the other hand I have met some not so incredible people, found out a few people are not quite who I thought they were, and more upsetting; I have lost. I lost a close friend of mine, and that will forever tarnish this year for me. I however refuse to end my year on a low note; I am going to end this year on a high, and go out with bang.
I am always a firm believer in the phrase ‘start as you mean to go on’, and in this spirit I intend to celebrate New Years Eve surrounding myself with great friends, beautiful people, and plenty of champagne. Which is pretty much how I want to spend 2012 – surrounded by great friends, beautiful people, and plenty of champagne. I am not asking for too much am I? .
Before you get all concerned I am going to get all Dead Poet’s Society “Carpe Diem” on you – don’t – because that’s not my style, and quite frankly why seize the day when you can seize the night too (yes I know the phrase isn’t literal, this is my sort of humour)? I do however intend to raise the bar a little this year, and push myself that little bit further because I know I am capable of so much, and it would be a gigantic shame if I do not fulfil any of my potential in life.
I don’t know where I am going in life, but one thing I know for sure is that I am determined to enjoy myself. I hope I learn something along the way. I am probably, well not probably, I am most definitely going to make a lot of mistakes in the upcoming year – but that’s a part of life. I can only hope in the same capacity I make some right decisions – after all it is all about the bad with the good.
Including this post I have blogged 97 times in the past 365 days, and I do not intend to stop anytime soon – so I hope you have perhaps found some enjoyment, amusement, or in the very least taken something away from one of those posts. Thank you for reading, sharing, caring, and everything in the past few years; I appreciate every e-mail, tweet, text, comment I get.
Best of luck, and wishes for 2012.
I leave you with this thought: Don’t wait for things to happen; make them happen.
