You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your life – The Holiday

Well, 2016, you have been a bit of a hit and miss; A lot has happened this year, and frankly, I’m so excited to see it put behind me in my most recent chapter of my life.

I thought I would recap my year on my blog, for your nosiness and my nostalgia when I look back on this in a years time to see how much everything has changed. Honestly, this is the most excited for a new year I have ever been; so much is going to happen and I’m so excited to be on this ‘blogging and youtube’ journey with everyone! I love you guys!

* DISCLAIMER* I don’t want to make this post in a point to complain. I never want to complain about anything, and frankly, I hate talking about myself. I wanted to make a post like this to assure those going through similar experiences that they aren’t alone. If I help at least one person with this post, then I am a happy lady, who thinks this was all worth it! *DISCLAIMER*

So without further ado, lets look back on 2016! 

This may be a tad long, so get yourself some tea and biscuits and enjoy! <3 


At the beginning of this year, I was in Uni and working casually for a shopping mall as one of those Concierge girls in the centre giving directions, and although the amount of complaints I got seemed substantial, I met some of the most genuine people there, and made some amazing friends. I loved it.
As I said above, I went to Uni in the early months of this year, and I hated it. I have anxiety that worsens in certain situations, and Uni was one of them. It was a terrible time for me mentally. Everything that I used to love doing became a chore and it just wasn’t worth it anymore. (HA! That totally rhymed) I had a reality check after a intervention with my parents and partner, and the best decision of my life came out of it; I quit that night. Im usually not someone to jump on something, usually I think about life choices before making a decision, but the amount of angst it was causing me, just didn’t seem worth it anymore. The feeling of something been lifted off my shoulders was instant. I haven’t regretted it since. Some people thrive in university, and it will be worth it for some, but for me….it just wasn’t.
I had to quit my job at the shopping mall as it was only casual, and now that I had decided to quit uni I needed a career change! I decided to jump at the first job opportunity I got, (an assistant in a firm)  and boy was that a mistake! I mean, it wasn’t all that bad, but it sky rocketed my anxiety to the point I had to pull over on the way to work one day. That was the last day I went. I guess you could say the job fell through, as I was only there for 2 months. Im surprised I made it that far, to be honest. But I’m so very proud of myself for knowing to quit, and to move on.After that, and seeing a therapist for a month, I gained myself back up and had about 2 months off to rekindle myself, work on stuff I loved (my blog, music) and starting my youtube channel back up. I had slacked off for a good two months when all that happened.

I now have a new job lined up for the new year as a Dental Assistant. Something that is TOTALLY out of my comfort zone, but I think will be so worth it. I am so looking forward to it, and I can’t wait to prove to myself, the world and all those who said I couldn’t do it that I can! I can and I will!

On more of a plus side, WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Yes! You read that right! WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We move in in March 2017 (hoping everything goes well) as it is still being built! I am SO excited!

I also think I have come along way with my anxiety and self confidence in the past 6 months. I am just one happy lady at the moment! <3

I just have a feeling about 2017, y’know. Something is calling me, I’m not sure what that is yet, but I’m so excited to share this all with you. (sorry to go all deep with ya!) I want to get to know each and every one of you who reads my blog, and I am so excited to do just that!

I wish everyone the most wonderful New Years and I hope that 2017 will be just as good for you that it will be for me! <3

Let me know something you learnt from 2016 and something you’d like to aspire to in 2017.

I am super intrigued to find out! <3
