Happy New Year WordPress pals!

So this past year has been a wild little ride. I started blogging with a purpose and in the process found something within me that finally allowed me to publish words without fear. I met scores of amazing people last year beginning with new friends in South Korea and Japan, lovely couchsurfers and travellers of all kinds, and truly remarkable friends through work. I started a new job and have been learning all kinds of new things that I’ll be able to take with me wherever I go. I finally got to write some poetry and short stories that I’m proud of. My blog grew from 50 followers to 2,234 and I’m immensely proud of that too. But, most importantly of all, I found a path that I’d like to take for 2018. I have an idea of where I want to go and what I want to do. The how, and when are unimportant details that keep it spontaneous. I don’t think I’ve ever been so confident in myself, and my goals, and in the potential of it all before. I’m very excited for this next year!
To everyone I met along the way, thank you. To all of you here that read, follow, like and generally put up with my inane drivel – a huge thank you! I hope you all had a great year, and have even bigger plans for this coming 12 months. I can’t wait to hear about it all and bask in your successes.
