January 3rd, 2016 - the first blog post of the year.

I'm sat here thinking about how everyone around me is full of fresh ideas, imaginative posts and goals they want to achieve, yet I'm here staring at my screen willing myself to write about something interesting and nothing is coming to mind. I have no scheduled posts and even though that bothers me slightly, I'm telling myself it's OK.

The rain is pouring on the window and the Christmas decorations have been taken down meaning the festive season is officially over and I can't help but feel a little deflated by how it's all happened to quickly. Time must be our number one enemy, I think. We spend some of our time wishing our lives away, longing for a dark period to be over, or counting down to an event or moment and yet for most of us, we always want more hours in the day and moan about how quickly time is flying. I think it's something we'll never really get to grips with.

Despite being completely worn out, the past 6 months really do seem to have flown because last night was my final shift as a health care assistant. A very bittersweet moment for me, and one worth documenting. It's difficult to explain the relationship I had with the job but ultimately, it broke my heart to say goodbye to people who may not have long to live, and I felt truly privileged to have been able to play a small part in their lives when they needed it most. Time can be the greatest healer but in this instance, it is the only thing against these individuals.

It is, however, time to start a new chapter. I don't know where life is taking me right now but I do know that it's important to enjoy the journey rather than focussing on the destination. I often question whether there is ever really is a destination because life doesn't end when you've reached where you thought you wanted to be. It carries on and takes you some place new; maybe expected, maybe not.

Only time will tell.

This is such a lovely post Sam, I definitely agree with you about lots of it. I always wish I had more time, and I always feel totally deflated after Christmas, it's my favourite time of year and it just felt like the whole month, and 2015 as a whole, flew by ridiculously fast, it's scary. But I'm exactly the same as you and haven't got any scheduled posts or any new content in mind, I'm hoping it'll start to flow naturally soon though.
