How many times have you said to yourself on New Year's Day "thank God that year is over"? It's a habit many of us probably have stating that the year just gone was quite frankly "bloody awful". I'm certainly guilty as charged, however this year I really thought about what I was thinking and realised that I was focusing on the terrible things that happened, rather than all the good things. One thing I have learnt in my years is to embrace the good with the bad and realise that it's an event that will pass at sometime.
I had a life changing event in the last few months of 2016; A cancer scare that shook me up like never before.
Going back to what I said before there were also many amazing good things that happened in 2016; a list so long I couldn't even try to put it all down in writing, and this brings me to that word that I try and live my life by; gratitude.
I have so many things to be happy and grateful for:
