In many ways, 2014 you have been an out and out bitch. I have gone through periods of eating hardly anything and sleeping for 1-2 hours a night for weeks on end, but I thank you for the lessons you have taught me.

I thank you for all the great friends I have made and for showing me that although I don’t yet have mr right, at least I’m not wasting my precious time with mr wrong. Thank you for helping me to see that I am beautiful on the inside and out, and for giving me the strength to hold my head up high with a new-found poise and confidence. Thank you for giving me the balls to take on a huge new challenge in 2015, and for giving me the dedication to learn an entirely new language and culture (still early days, but so far so good with my Italian). Thank you for giving me the mental strength to pick up the pace with my running and smash out a 1:51 half marathon at Oxford in October. Most of all, thank you for making me see that I don’t need to change, compromise, or give up on my dreams for any thing or any one.

Here’s to a brilliant and bright 2015 for one and all!

Fight for what you want people! xx
