This summer was epic for me, my family and friends!
It almost felt like a new year has started for me. I made life changing decisions that I still have to be ironing out. I embraced new friendships and built on the old. I opened up my heart and soul for more fun and doing more me things. I solidified time with my girls, developed better strategies for my career. Mostly for the summer, I learnt to be more unavailable to needy people and how to accept a loss.
Summer 2016 left me with a broken heart, loss of friends, loss of two big accounts, but on the flip side, I gained a new car, off the lot, a healed conscience, a better understanding of relationships and most of all a calmer spirit.
I found my love in Redstripe Lemon Flavoured Beer, which I now share with people I love and want to be around. I found my love in Karaoke, even though I can’t sing a lick. I found my inner voice and brought it more to the forefront and yelled the secrets I kept that I was ashamed to share. I found that sometimes it’s harder to let go and to move on but easier when you take it one moment at a time.
I grew up in 2016 by picking my battles, listening more and talking less. I struggled less with my body issues and gradually learnt to embrace rounder portions. I showed the world my passion for beauty and fashion and came out with the confidence to compete with bigger brands. I relaxed more.
So to wrap up this short post, my summer was a summer of LOVE, FUN and a BRIGHT FUTURE. The memories and the pictures just bring a smile to my face, the memories of the occasions or even the friend taking the pics. I learnt to be happy in summer 2017, let’s see what 2017 brings.
