Looking back on 2017

I’ve felt a bit disheartened this year. Perhaps because I have celebrated the last birthday in my 20s with the realisation that I haven’t achieved all the things I would have liked to by now.

For me, life has sped up in places I didn’t expect it to and slowed down in those areas I thought should and would have progressed by now.

Of course 30 is just a number and nothing is really going to change on the day, I’m aware of that – but we can’t help but have aspirations marked by milestones.

That being said, it is a new year – a time, symbolically, for fresh starts and I still have 6 months until the big 3-0.

2016: the worst year ever?

I think it is safe to say that many of us were happy to bid good riddance to last year.

Who knew, as we went into 2016 with our inspirational resolutions, that we would look backwards on 12 months that saw the world lose so many icons – Prince, Bowie, George Michael and Muhammad Ali – to name a few – alongside so many more atrocious terrorist attacks. And, that we would be heading into 2017, with the promise of Donald Trump taking over the most powerful job in the world and Brexit becoming a reality.
