I think it’s safe to say, 2016 has been a really crap year for everybody…

Whether you live in the UK and your heart was broke by the results of the EU referendum or you have Donald Trump as President… We’ve all had a tough time. So many celebrity deaths I’ve lost count, multiple terrorist attacks and a refugee crisis. That’s what’s been happening in the world, let alone so many of us experiencing our own personal loss and incredibly difficult times.

But if you’re reading this, you’re one tough cookie and you’ve made it to 2017!

One thing I have come to understand about tough times is that they always, without a doubt, make you stronger and even more determined to do better. Thats what 2016 gave us, the strength and determination to go above and beyond. I’ll be totally honest with you, I haven’t felt motivated for a long time, I’ve been tired. Tired & done with everything life has thrown at me but something inside me has said  “OK I’m done! somethings gotta change!”. I’m not willing to sit and sulk about life not going my way or complain about all the sucky things that have happened…

…I’m about change. Making it happen and being in total control of your own happiness.

If you don’t like your job, change it. If you aren’t happy in a relationship, end it. If you don’t like where you live, get outta there! I’ve done all of the above and made the scary decisions involved, all by myself. If I can, you definitely can too. Changing up your life for your own happiness is 100% beneficial, you’ll grow and learn how to cope with the bad times better.

On that note.. I want to wish you the best 2017 ever. You deserve it! Apply for the job, take that first flight, upload your first YouTube video, whatever it is.. just do it. If you want it enough and know it’ll make you happy, I’m rooting for you to go get it!

Thank you for reading as always, my new years resolution is to keep on blogging at least once a week so I hope to see you very soon!

Happy new year XXX



  1. Don’t you find once you make one tough decision, they just seem to roll on so much easier and you get more and more confident to keep making the changes? Good on you! Hope 2017 is your best yet x

      Yeah I totally agree, once you get used to making changes for yourself it becomes a lot less scary over time! Thank you, you too, I hope the new year brings out our courage to go and get the things we want! Natasha xx

    Oh I love this.
    I too have had a shite year. Your post has inspired me to get up off my pity pot and do something about it.

    Thank you so much. Please keep up your posts, they are really inspirational and give me a boost every time. I think this has been my favourite so far.

      Aw thank you, I’m glad you found it somewhat useful 🙂 I hope that the new year is our best, comparing it to last year it might not be to difficult to achieve!
