So I was feeling a little down about the fact that I'm not in the place I'd maybe want to be at the end of 2013 - still no closer to living with Sean, still not in control of my finances, still not sure what I want to do with my life. But some tough love on Twitter from two of my favourite ladies -Bess and Sarah- made me realise that I've achieved a fair bit this year, I graduate this month with the MA with Merit I gained, I got a new job that I love and that has good prospects, and I've been happy and healthy for the majority of the year.
Blogwise as well I think its easy to get downhearted that you're maybe not achieving what you think you should be, or even if you get a little bit envious that your friends in the blog world are doing SO well (even though you're so proud of them!) From the perspective of my friends and family outside of the blog world though I've had an amazing year, I got to go to Paris for the weekend, I've hit 500 subscribers on YouTube and 2,000 followers on Twitter - I got to go a freaking Robbie Williams private concert!
2014 then is going to be the year of striving to be the best that I can be, and trying to stop comparing myself to other people. I can't wait to see what the next 12 months brings!
