Well goodbye 2016, hello 2017.
This year has flown by and I can’t quite believe it is the end already; to be completely honest I’m glad it’s over because a fresh start is just the thing I need.
I can’t imagine that this year was great for anyone. The amount of celebrity icons that have tragically died this year has been horrific. Such legends that we will never forget.
I’m not going to write some sob story about how awful this year has been for me because quite frankly that would be unfair. There are so many people out there in this world who have risked their lives just so that they could get to a safe country. Since when did the world come to this?
I’m over in the corner crying because my parents decided to get a divorce but even I will learn to accept that it is for the better, even if I can’t see that right now.
But my point being that my life isn’t all that bad. Yes, I have things to overcome but my problems are minuscule compared to those living in poverty or living with life threatening diseases.
Generally I don’t ever stick to my New Years resolutions but for 2017 I am setting a goal that I will want to achieve. I want to help others. I’m not saying that so that people think I am a ‘good girl’ but because that is genuinely what I want to do. I want to know that I have made a difference. On Christmas Day I could help but feel guilty because I was receiving such lovely presents while there were people out there alone, on the streets, in hospital or fleeing their country. Next year I want to know that I have helped someone out there to have no worries for once in their life.
I hope everyone has a great 2017!
Happy New year!
Never Stop Wondering…
