Today is Christmas Day! Merry Christmas to you! Right about now I’ll either be watching my family open their presents or dashing around to get ready in time for Christmas lunch. Christmas day has always been a special day and one that I hold close to my heart. It’s a time to appreciate our lives, remember our loved ones and spend time with our families. I’m lucky to have a loving family that I can spend my Christmas day with, but I know so many people aren’t as fortunate. Everybody experiences lonely times in their lives, but I wanted to tell you that you are never alone and that there is always a friend waiting in the wings ready to swoop in and help you when you need them the most. You just need to reach out and let them know.
I wanted to write a post to thank you. Thank you for reading my blog, for liking my facebook posts and for watching my videos. Thanks to you I feel supported and know that I always have the love and encouragement that everybody needs in their lives. I want to tell you that you have no idea just how much you mean to me. Every single visitor to my website, every single view on my videos and every encouraging word means the world. It’s important to me that my beautiful readers, viewers and supporters know that they’re all so important to me and all contribute to allowing me to realise my dream of running my own business, vlogging and blogging. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Without each of you, it would not be possible.
2017 has been a rollercoaster of a year with many highs and of course, some lows. It’s normal to experience the ups and downs of life as we meander along, learning and growing every single day. With that in mind, I hope that your 2017 was just as giving, and if not, lets look forward to a fresh start in 2018. A brand new year where all of our dreams can come true and the feeling of unexpected opportunity lies in the air. Don’t you just love that feeling of promise where you aren’t quite sure what’s going to happen but you just know it’s going to be amazing? My wish for you is that you ever have that feeling of wonder and zest for life because without that little glimmer of hope, our world would be a darker place.
I want to wish you the merriest of Christmases and hope that you’re all spending it with those that you love. Christmas can be a sad time for many, so for those of you that are struggling, my love, hugs and positive energy is flowing to you in abundance.
