End of Year Reflections

31 December 2014


Dear 2014,

Thank you for accepting me and allowing me to grow into the women I am today. I have learnt a great deal in this one year than I have in any another and for that I am thankful.
You will be missed.
 I will never forget the fun we have had but for now it's goodbye.

I've been thinking how to word this post exactly as this year has been one of the most testing yet best years of my life... and I say that with NO exaggeration. 

After mourning the loss of a toxic relationship in 2012/2013 I made it my mission to be a better individual to myself and love myself unconditionally.

The year started off with a bang celebrating with all my loved ones and from there the year has become one massive party... literally.
2014 definitely taught me how to go for what I want in life and not to take NO for an answer.
I've become more responsive and understanding to other peoples feelings whereas in the past I was very naive to situations and often didn't give people the benefit of the doubt - That's the mean girl in me. :(
I've also learnt not be walked over.
I know this is a contradiction of the above but I've let a lot of things slide in the past and it became habit to say YES to people rather than NO.

It hasn't been an 'all win' kind of year. I've lost a few close friends that have been very dear to my heart.
But it was for the best. 
Reflecting on friendships has been one of the hardest battles I have fought this year. When you see friends become destructive you have no choice but to exclude yourself and that's what I had to do.
It has also been a very selfish year for me.
I have LIVED how I have wanted to live and LOVED how I wanted to love - but unfortunately some of my 'friends' couldn't accept my selfishness to MYSELF hence why we parted ways.

One of the best things that has happened to me this year has to be finding my feet in the media industry. When I graduated from University I was lucky to be able to get a job in media however, I was still very green and not sure if this was what I wanted to do. This year I have jumped from job to job and even dabbled in Freelancing but now I have found somewhere, where I can grow and most importantly LEARN.

But without a doubt THE best thing to come out of 2014 is finding love again.

I have been feeling in the last few months that I want to change it up on the blog. I love the fashion posts and enjoying showing you guys my personal style but when I wrote 'My Truth: My 20s' I never knew how much I would enjoy writing such a meaningful post and I think I want to start writing more on VK. Now that's not to say that I won't be posting Personal Style because lord knows I love to shop and pose! But if 2014 has taught me anything it's to be myself and be more open.

Happy New Year peoples! I hope you all have an amazing 2015!
