This year so far has been full of trials and tribulations. 2015 has actually started pretty damn well for me, so why so many problems at the same time? It's weird how that can be the case. Kind of like ying and yang. With every bad thing, there is a good thing. Every time you close one door, another one opens. However, March is the end of Winter and the start of Spring, and the changing of the seasons always bring around new things. Even on the worst of days, there is always hope.
I'm ready for the March winds. I'm ready for the daffodils to spring. I'm ready to walk Max along a beach with the salty air stinging my face and my hair blowing into a sea-worthy knotty mess. I'm ready to move onto pastures new and experience new places and people. I'm ready to feel a little scared and get that rush of adrenaline when you know something is right, even if it's not what you're used to.
I turn 25 this month and I've been reflecting a lot on where I thought I'd be at my quarter of a century. Have I done all I thought I'd do? Have I lived enough? Do I spend too many days saying 'it can wait' or 'I want to do that one day.' Why can't that day be today? I keep saying I want to do things like Tough Mudder, and a half marathon, or impulsive weekend trips to places around the UK that I didn't know existed. I need to get my ass into gear and start living. My birthday is always a hyped thing as I've always made a huge fuss. I'm the only girl and only daughter so my parents have always gone to town. I think this year I want to thank them more than anything, for giving me 25 years of wonderful life.
It's also 1 week until I go skiing with a wonderful person. The same person that sent me the beautiful roses that were sent to me on Valentine's Day not so long ago. To say I am excited is an understatement. Skiing is something that has always come very natural to me. I started skiing at a young age and raced until I was 21, so to be away for a week what feels like my second home of Avoriaz is something that I have been waiting for now for a long time. I'm massively over-keen and my bags are already packed, my skis have been waxed and I just need to get to Heathrow T5 now and get on that plane. I'm ready for a week away.
I've been singing like crazy recently. Maybe it's all the emotion and change in my life at the moment, I'm not sure. But creative wise, it's doing me some good. I uploaded a couple of new songs to my YouTube recently so please do check them out.
I hope you're all having a glorious March so far, and remember that even on the worst of days, there is always hope. Always.
