Hello world and HELLOOOOO 2017, how are ya you shiny little thing. (It’s now February, and I wrote this in Jan but I’m lazy, so lets just pretend).
So 2016, despite bringing the Earth some (well a lot) of horrors, was a hell of a year for me. I climbed Machu Picchu, travelled a whole lot, lived (still do) in Australia, did some volunteering, learnt some Spanish, decided to be Vegetarian.. the list could go on.
It was a fab year for all of those reasons, but also a hard one for all those reasons. Being away from home for the whole of 2016 made me sad a lot of the time, but I’m turning that into positive experience of appreciating my family, my friends, and the familiarity of home so much more.
So I feel like I’m coming into 2017 a bit different than last year, and I’m into that.
There’s been a few thoughts flying round my head during these first weeks of January, (see, now it’s Feb. sorry.) and as with a new year comes a new mindset (naturally) so I want to jot it down so it makes more sense.
I’d like to share one part of my career life which is really going my way – which is being a copywriter for the wonderful Shae Maree. I’ve written some copy for Shae’s website, and more recently been writing for the blog (which you can read here). And I love it. Such a great tone of voice that I can get down with, topics I’m super interested in, and a vision I can get involved in. Plus, writing is my jam. Go check out Shae’s beautiful creations that are often made from recycled materials, it’s a boho dream world.
I’m also doing some other bits and bobs. Sometimes it feels like I really haven’t got my shit together. Sometimes it feels like the world’s my oyster. But in 2017 I’m all about that Positive Metal Attitude. It’s all gonna be grand. Keep working hard, keep hustling, keep being happy.
