I revived my love for blogging and writing earlier this year as a means to let out some of that pent up creative and sometimes anxious energy. Always quite the fidgety one I was getting tired of just letting life happen. I’m always at my best when I can put thoughts to paper.
2016 has been interesting, depressing, exciting, uplifting and just down right weird all in one. I’ve learnt that the more I try and write the script the more the universe shows me you can’t force life. I’ve learnt that getting older is a wonderful thing and getting wiser isn’t just a myth but of course you can still be a kid on the inside and not be disheartened by the weirdness of this crazy world.
I especially enjoyed my birthday this year and I remember telling everyone I felt really good and excited and I was. I’m not sure why now I’m nervous about the next birthday but I’m hoping I feel the same way I did this year… appreciated, loved and just ready to take on whatever life throws.
The world has left me feeling uneasy and I definitely felt more anxious about ‘bad things’ happening. If you live in London you only have to get on the underground to feel like you’re not always safe, with police everywhere seemingly always on the alert for the next uproar. But even in that I’ve learnt to on the best of days let go.
2016 has been one of sexual acceptance, romantic denial and physical awareness. Body acceptance was always a struggle as it is for many women. I tell myself these days that my body is powerful, beautiful and more than capable. Whilst I’ve definitely felt stronger and fitter in 2016 I truly felt beautiful (sorry for bombarding you with selfies if you follow me on social media!)
All in all, cheers to another year and I can’t wait for 2017!
