When Life Gives You Lemons...

It's been a tough, crazy & also wonderful year, but not just for myself. I have spoken to many people in the past couple of months who share the same view on 2012. It was a monster. Bring on 2013.

It's amazing how much of the way we choose to see things can change our levels of happiness & motivation in an instant. Personally, looking at my 2012 & concentrating on the life-changing events, bar a couple, I have honestly had quite an awful year. It also occurs to me though, that these events have now shaped my life into the most magnificent & opportunistic playground, that without those misfortunes, mistakes & the utter messiness - I wouldn't be where I am right now.

It's currently 15 minutes to midnight as I write this & I could not thank 2012 enough for the heartache, the whirlwind or the unease it has seen me endure, because I have done exactly that - endured. I am strong, enlightened & motivated. I have decided to follow a simple principle in 2013 that I believe you can only truly appreciate when you have been the lowest of low & know that the only person that can make it better, is you:

So I hope that like me, you can do the same. Be strong, look forward & make life what you want it to be. What a precious gift we have been given. Happy New Year xo

What are you 2013 dreams, aspirations, resolutions?
