I know I seem to say this every time Christmas rolls around but this year was very odd. I finally found myself at university surrounded by amazing people, feeling very grateful for everything I've been given whilst missing my family and friends incredibly, but enjoying every second nonetheless. I've already learned so much at university and it's only been a few months so I have high expectations for the rest of the year and all I'm going to gain. 2012 is going to be the year I stop worrying about things and I start taking my life in my stride, rather than fretting over every little detail. And while for many people 2011 may have been a fantastic year for you, it's also been an incredibly life-changing and sad year in many respects.
While 2011 has certainly been a year for big world events it's also been a turning-point year, with high hopes that 2012 holds more opportunities for change and happier times, the world over. And hopefully if like me it's been a rocky year with lots of uncertainty, that 2012 will be the year that things finally fall into place.
While this year has been very difficult for many people I wanted to make a very early new year's resolution in hopes that 2012 will be a better year, especially as I am the kind of person who is already stressing out about things I have to do and it's not even the end of the year yet! I hope that everyone else has had a fantastic year but if 2011 has been for you, like me, a mixed bag then first of all, hang in there, things have to get better eventually and just know that you're not the only one and I am sure that 2012 is gonna be the year that things change and get better for everyone.
So if all my lovely followers would kindly join me in raising a glass to the end of 2011 (yes I know it's a bit early but inspiration struck me tonight and it's nearly Christmas!) and look forward to 2012 being the best year yet! I truly wish you all a wonderful new year!
Smudge also wishes you all a very Merry Christmas :)
Take care everyone!
