I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish any one who reads this a happy 2018! I can't believe we are in a new year already, 2017 just flew by!!
For me personally I hope that this new year which is only hours old at present will be a more positive and happy year. I have had a tough couple of years which have been really testing and challenging where I had to be a stronger person but I have hope for this year that this will be my big break! I am finally getting help with everything that happened to me a couple of years ago and move on from it which will help me feel better (I hope!) this is a massive deal for me and I feel like an entire weight has been lifted off my tiny shoulders at long last.
I also had time to reflect early this morning about forgiveness and looking at what I have, I lost a close friend at the end of last year as I realized she wasn't all she seamed in the end, I sent her a nice message saying I hope shes doing okay and that this year will be a good year for her. I got a reply back saying thanks and you as well. I sent her that message as I feel that life is too short to hold a grudge as one of my closest friends passed away five years ago this year and I would give anything to see her again and have her here, you don't know how much we miss something until we lose it, this made me realise I need to make peace with this other girl, our friendship may not be the same again sadly but I made my peace with her and that's a great relief.
I am going into this year with an open mind and focus on the now and the people in my life that do love me and (goodness knows why!) stuck by me no matter what.
