Thank God for that . 2016 is over .
Not that I’m expecting 2017 to be my year or anything . But last year was filled with so much death .
It started in June 2015 with my partners Gran and then my dog . And then 2016 hit and so many famous people started dropping . Over 80 celebrity deaths . Most being my idols , especially Carrie Fisher , that one really got to me at the end of the year .
I normally love Christmas and am like a massive child . But this year, it didn’t seem right .
All my Dec’s went up . Time spent with family . Music , alcohol , cake etc . But I couldn’t help but feel this massive void . 2016 felt like it left me a shell . Emotionally, I had been so up and down that I think I was exhausted come the end .
Don’t get me wrong , I appreciate all the amazing gifts and time spent with loved ones . I was truly spoiled again this year . I am just emotionally exhausted .
That’s one thing I can say though , I have slept through the holidays . Been going to bed super late and staying in bed to catch up on sleep too .
I didn’t celebrate 2017 . I had tea in my pajamas and sat and watched TV with Rob all night .
One thing I can say though . I am happy 2016 is over . I am ready to move forward from all of that rubbish . It didn’t make me stronger , it beat me black and blue . But it made me thankful for the time I have been on this earth and for the time I have left . Be it a day , year or seventy years . I am thankful .
So with that said , thank you 2016 and goodbye . Please 2017 , do not be a copy cat !
