From what I’ve seen on social media, everyone’s 2016 seemed to have been really shitty. Which I find people do take life for granted so easily and people tend to have had a crap year because they aren’t rich, got the job they want etc. But I count every minute I’m breathing an absolute blessing and thinking back to 2016 I’ve had an incredibly lucky (maybe not to some people) year and decided to try and share some positivity!
Moving Out, again.
Towards the end of last year, after my and my fiance broke up (we’re back together now) and I ended up back at my mum’s. I fucking hated it there so when May came around and I got to move back out I couldn’t have been happier to be a family again.
My Son Starting School.
My son who’s almost 5 started full time school in September and it was one of the most nerve wracking moments of my life. When my son was younger he didn’t go to pre school, he had such bad behavioural problems that he just couldn’t go. So not having any previous experience with other kids I was so nervous for him. But he absolutely loves it there, he has so many friends and he’s counting down the days till he goes back. He’s come such a long way with his behaviour too, I couldn’t be any prouder of him.
Getting The All Clear.
After having convinced myself I’d got cervical cancer for months (after showing numerous symptoms, I didn’t just pluck it out of the air) then having a bad smear result I was in a state of panic for ages. But after having the cells removed and getting the all clear it was the biggest relief ever.
Being The Happiest I’ve Ever Been!
This year I didn’t win the lottery or even go on holiday but it’s been the most amazing year for me. My mental health is better as a whole, I appreciate every second I can no matter if I’m down to my last penny or not. As long as I’ve got my health, a roof over my head, food in the cupboards and my little perfect family I’m the happiest I can be.
Remember to appreciate what you have everyone, you never know what’s around the corner. ❤️ Happy New Year guys!
