I didn't think I was going to write about how, at midnight tonight, the year changes from 2015 to 2016, but here we are. Writing anyway.

I don't make resolutions and I don't particularly have any goals. For a while I've been thinking, sh*t this makes me the worst person ever. I'm not sat here wanting to better myself. I don't want to eat more healthily, do more exercise, work more, buy less etc. None of it's going to happen and actually, I don't want them to happen either.

2015 has been an awesome year. Sure, I have things I could complain about but I'm not going to. Everyone has things they can complain about but if it's one thing I have learnt this year is that other people are going through far worse than I am and I need to enjoy every single living moment that I have on earth. That growing old isn't a burden or annoying but rather it's a privilege. From being a toddler, teenager, adult, middle aged or an elderly woman - they all offer something new to be experienced in life and I hope that I get to experience it all. But most of all, I want 2016 to be a happy year. I want it to be a year of adventure, risk taking and new experiences, because that's when we grow the most.

It's so cliched to reflect over this new year period, and I feel like a sheep for joining in too, but I think it's perhaps, unavoidable. I took the decision to make this blog public this year and I'm so happy that I did because of you guys. The ones who comment, follow and read this blog because you make it all worth it. So, THANK YOU! I've spent a few moments wondering whether I want to continue writing here, this year, but I always come back to the same decision - yes, of course I do. However, I fly to Sri Lanka in 19 days time and I have no idea what the internet will be like, whether I'll have wifi and I certainly won't be able to take and edit fancy photos. And for that reason, this blog will probably be a little quiet until April, and that is OK. I've worked hard on this little space but sometimes it's important to take a step back and just enjoy life, so with that in mind, I won't be putting pressure on myself to maintain this blog - if I get chance to use it like a diary, then great! If not, it's no biggie.

So finally, I'll wish you all a very Happy New Year! I hope you have a great NYE, whatever you're doing and I hope 2016 is filled with happiness and great health for you all. See you on the other side!
