So tomorrow will be the start of a brand new year. Can you believe it? If you are anything like me, you are ready. Ready for the new challenges, opportunities and experiences that a new year brings, and ready to see the close of the year that was. Of course, just like me, there might be a little bit of trepidation as the new year approaches. As much as it is a fresh start, there is also a bit of presumption that comes with that shiny number 1 on the calendar.Almost a heavy expectation that suddenly life is going to be better or something. Lucky for me [and hopefully for you] I don't tend to buy into that bullshit. New years resolutions fade, things happen, priorities change. In reality the 1st of January is just another day, in a series of days, to lead to weeks, months and years that make up our lives.

If you haven't walked past a calendar recently, you might not know that it is the end of the year. If you haven't been on the internet recently, you also might not know that 2016 has been a bit of a shit year for a lot of people. Now for me, personally, it hasn't been terrible, there have been some rough patches, but there have been some pretty awesome ones too. Taking a step back from me [because you know, its not all about me all the time] looking at the world around me, I get it. We have lost people, we have seen a changing political landscape, the environment has changed around us right before our very eyes. There has been war, and death, and senseless violence. Its been a big year. I have drunk a lot of wine this year. But hey, any excuse for champagne right?
