Here we have it; 1 January 2015.
Growing up, the year 2000 always seemed so futuristic, a far off date that would forever be just out of our grasp, only featuring in sci-fi films and the imaginations of children, but now we find ourselves 15-years past that date and I’m still not the owner of a hoverboard.
2014, for me, was a great year. Of course there were ups and downs as is natural in the course of life, but for the most part it was a year of happiness, laughter and love. Friendships were formed, existing relationships strengthened and true colours seen peeking out from behind the facade of others. Although it is sad to have recognised a wolf in sheep’s clothing or to have found those that had appeared reliable and trustworthy were not so, I have tried not to dwell on these things as I’m a great believer in there being positives in everything, no matter how impossible it may be to believe it sometimes.
2014 was also the year my debts were paid off and I moved in with K. It’s hard to explain, but it feels like a line was drawn under the past and I was handed a sparkly clean slate to lay as the foundation stone for my future.
But what of 2015?
Well, 2015 is the year that I will turn 30-years old. It is the year that my savings account will grow with funds with which K and I can buy our first joint home, I’m in a job I enjoy, and I’m surrounded by loved ones who make my soul glad.
With the commencement of a new decade I find myself looking back at how my life has changed in the past 10-years. From 19 to 29 my life has changed so much and I have experienced so many things, that when I think about what is yet to come it feels like explosions going off in my mind. Who knows what the future will bring!
So, here’s to 2014; as we said goodbye at midnight I raised a glass filled to the brim with gratitude for everything it brought me.
Now, let’s roll 2015 – we’ve got plans to put into action and life to be lived!
