Hello 2018.

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe how quickly 2017 came and went! I was determined to make 2017 a positive year for me and I feel I’ve succeeded. I have grown a lot as individual and achieved things I never imagined I would. At the beginning of 2017, I wrote a post about an idea I saw on Facebook, where you start off with an empty jar and add notes throughout the year about something positive. So with a cup of tea to hand, I opened my Jar. Here are some of my 2017 highlights:
