It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and properly written a blog post as the previous posts were very much short spontaneous ones.
2017 has been a very eventful year, it’s been a year of many changes, experiences, ups and yet downs. However, if you ask me to summarise 2017, I would summarise it in one word – appreciation.
This year has been a year where I felt like I’ve learnt a lot, and I’ve managed to also achieve some things that I am very appreciative of.
It’s a year which made me realise the extent to which I appreciate the people around me and as well the opportunities I have been given.
It’s a year I am appreciative of the old yet new friendships I have sustained, but also the people I have met along the way.
It’s a year I am appreciate due to the possessions I hold and the freedom to be able to live.
It’s a year I have been introduced to different types of ideologies, and acknowledging the different approaches people take.
I am appreciative to be welcomed to some peoples lives and as well be accepted as one of theirs, yet also be a mentor to some.
I have been chuffed by the comments, words and appreciation of others, but as well I have also learnt to give back to society in appreciation of what the future holds as a whole.
Reflecting on the year, I’ve been fortunate to have traveled for leisure and for work. There’s been some unfortunate events in 2017, but as a whole, I am appreciative and content for what I do have and I am very much looking forward to welcoming 2018, as something tells me 2018 will be a good year.
Now let’s just hope I don’t jinx that!
