As the end of 2016 approached, social media around the world exploded with witty memes and defiant statuses, all bidding farewell with the ‘middle finger’ to train wreck that was last year.
Personally, it was not a train wreck. I did not experience anything particularly earth shattering or heartbreaking. I did not experience anything worthy of great elation either. Overall, it was a pretty mundane year, for me.
And there it is folks: MUNDANE. It was one of the most boring years that I can remember. I had nothing to challenge and push me: I was completely and utterly uninspired and burnt out. So I stopped going to the gym, came home from work everyday unable to do much else other than lounge in pyjamas and feel sorry for myself.
So I made the decision, like so many others, to leave this toxicity behind in the ‘year-that-shall-not-be-named’ and this blog is just the beginning. It is a little gift to myself to spice things up a little. I have always loved writing, and after much research, many conversations with many wonderful people (over a fair amount of wine), decided to try to out.
Here’s to new beginnings, new adventures and most importantly, to putting ME first.
