|Me having a coffee of some sort (!) in Hobart yesterday!|
I can hardly believe it's New Year's Eve, and the last few hours of 2011 are trickling away.
What a year!! I seem to have crammed five years worth of stuff into 11 months and 30 days! I've gone to places I only ever dreamed of, and have come out the other side of challenges I used to think were beyond me. Without wanting to sound like a broken record, my 2011 highlights have definitely been :
Seeing my friends and family in Australia again, and meeting new arrivals :)
So, in some ways I'm sorry 2011 is over because it's been a life changing year in every sense of the word - the highs have been dizzy-ingly so; but, at the same time, there have been a few lows, which haven't been much fun. There have been a lot of changes, and more changes still ahead. But I'm excited about all of that. You can't have one without the other and it's important not to get complacent about things. Many times this year I've been at the edge of a cliff, metaphorically speaking (!), where the choice was be pushed, or jump. I chose to jump.
So it's been a year of extremes for me, I'd say! I've learned a lot about the importance of living in the moment, and being brave enough to take leaps of faith. The good has definitely outweighed the not-so-good, and I'm really happy to be heading into 2012 and excited about what lies ahead. Right now I'm staring down a road I've needed to travel for a long time. And the time is now! Bring it on!!
Thank you for reading SLSB this year, and for giving me your constant support, love and encouragement. It really does mean the world to me. There is SO much to come in 2012 that I can't wait to share with you all. Life is such an adventure and I love having you along for the ride. Fasten your seatbelt!
So here's me raising a virtual cocktail to you all - wishing you a happy and safe clocking-over to January 1st. To life, to dreams, to adventure!
Cheers! See you next year! xx
