I hope that you have all had an amazing Christmas 2012 and I wish you all the best for 2013. May your year be full of travel and exciting experiences!
This was the last Christmas that I will be spending at home before my sabbatical. Hopefully next Christmas will be spent on Bondi beach or watching glow worms on the South Island of New Zealand.
I had a lovely time with my family but it made me realise that although I love my family, friends and living in Liverpool I need something more in my life. Excitement and new experiences. Going home for Christmas I noticed how many people that I knew from school and when I was younger were in the same place as they were last year and the year before that. This may be happiness and contentment for most people but it’s not for me. I have never been as happy as I was on my two trips abroad this year.
I have never felt so alive and I have never felt so ‘myself’.
2012 was a big year in my life, the year that I decided not to settle for second best in my life and the year when I discovered what makes me truly happy.
May 2013 be the year where I put the thoughts and ideas of 2012 in to action. Where my life changes immeasurably and where I feel unadulterated happiness when I wake up each morning, rather than dreading yet another ‘ground hog day’.
2013 will be the best year of my life!
