2016 for me was a crazy rollercoaster of a year. 
There were highs and there were lows. Probably just like everyone else's.
I think a lot of the time we focus more on the negatives than we do of the positives.

I know in the rest of the World a lot has happened in 2016, which I will not be discussing throughout this post. I do have my views and I have heard other opinions too but voicing them really is not going to benefit anyone realistically. America ily. 

So in this post I am going to mention just a few of the highlights of the year. 
These may be memories that now are not relevant to me but at the time they made me happy and that is what sometimes we need to remind ourselves.

- I moved home from University. This decision was based on financial state and the fact living at home would cause me less stress, which benefits everyone health wise.

- I became Vice Chair and then Chair of the dance society at my University. If you are a follower of my blog you will know that dance has always been a major part of my life, so therefore why not take the creative and director role for a change, aye?

- I brought myself a new car. It was unfortunately time for an upgrade. My old little KA wouldn't of survived much longer. Always in our hearts Kay.

- I went on my first holiday without my parents. I got to visit the beautiful country of Greece and without doubt I will definitely be revisiting.

- I started second year of University. Considering I spent 3 years out of academic studying I am so proud of myself. Another step closer to my future career, I am so excited.

- I started a new job. I found myself a new job in a field to benefit my course and I loved every single second. 

- I STARTED BLOGGING! Major happiness and start of a new form of release and creativity was formed when I started this. 

These are just a few of my highlights of 2016. Sometimes it is important to look at these to recognise what you have accomplished. Bad times happen to everyone and they do make us stronger individuals. 

Something that has been a major factor to 2016 was seeing my beautiful best friends graduate and achieve some of their dreams. 2016 has been a year of bursting with joy for my friends and I forever become more and more proud of them. I know this is just the start of their journeys, as well as my own

I am proud of myself and that is not something I say everyday. 
I have realised a lot and I also know a lot I want to change about myself.

2017 is the year I become a better version of myself. 
I want you guys to be there with me. 
We will help each other, every step of the way.

Much love
