Can you believe it is the last day of 2015? At the beginning of every year it feels like a hell of a long time till December, yet here we are on the 31st December in disbelief that tomorrow will bring a new year.
What was 2015 for me? Well I met some amazing and fabulous bloggers, you know who you are :), I went to my first blogging event solo, Nibbles ‘n’ Scribbles had its first birthday, my blogging hat is pretty much permanently on given I cannot go into a supermarket or eat out without seeking to review (I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing), and although I’ve discovered many goodies I have eaten far too many snacks all in the name of Nibbles ‘n’ Scribbles; although it makes a great justification for buying and eating everything all the time.
On a personal level 2015 has been pretty grand. I got that promotion at work and I have developed a love for outdoor bootcamp, which if you said to me at the beginning of the year I would love going to, even in the rain, I would have generally laughed in your face! However biggest of all was I pushed myself beyond my comfort zone in the name of Charity, travelled 11 hours across the world and took on The Great Wall of China with 22 other trekkers who I’d never met before, *eeeek*. With spectacular surroundings we trekked over 60km, risked life and limb on the edge of crumbling wall and overgrown pathways, we laughed, we cried, we sang around a camp fire, we wore snazzy leggings, we conquered more stairs than you could ever imagine, we ate enough Chinese food to last a lifetime, and yet I still cannot use chopsticks, but most of all we raised an incredible £69,669.94 for CoppaFeel! to continue spreading their life saving message and stamp out late detection of breast cancer. It was truly amazing and is by far my greatest achievement to which I proved to myself that I am a stronger person than I thought I was. It was an experience of a lifetime which I will forever remember, and above all is going to be blooming hard to top.
As 2016 draws ever closer have you been asked by goodness knows how many people what your New Year’s Resolutions are? To be fair 25% of New Year’s resolutions are broken within the first week, so is it any wonder why we make such big resolutions to then not keep them. Lets be fair there is no point in making resolutions unless you really are committed and motivated. If nothing else be who you want to be, do what you want to do, change what you want to change, as long as you want to do it!
On that note I’m off to make champagne jelly. Have a fabulous New Year’s Eve everyone and see you in 2016!
