2016 hasn’t been the best year for anyone really. There have been lots of celebrity deaths and devastation worldwide like; Syria and the Orlando shooting, to name a few but I wanted to focus on the things that I was thankful for that happened this year. I was surprised by how many amazing things happened to me.
Thank you 2016. Thank you for being the year I discovered Hamilton and the wonder that it is. Thank you for being the year Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them came out. It was the film that help me manage to convert my friend into Harry Potter and where I found another celebrity crush in Eddie Redmayne. I want to say Thank you for being the year we got the Cursed Child play but I’m still not sure about that one. Thank you for being the year I introduced my mum to Supernatural which she loves. Thank you for being the year I got WordPress which has been a great outlet for me.
Thank you 2016 for being the year we didn’t lose our cat and waking us up to his weight issues. We weren’t sure he was going to survive and now he’s on a diet to get him better. Thank you for being the year I met another adorable dog called Lois. She is adorable and eats everything but I love her for it.
Thank you for being the year I met my family who lives in Milton Keynes. They are the most loving and supportive people I have have ever met more so than my family down where I am. I also got to meet my grandad for the first time since I was born. Thank you for being the year my auntie got married, seeing the love in my aunties eyes when she married her husband will stay with me for a long time. The ceremony was full of handmade stuff done by my auntie and my grandma and it was a beautiful thing to see. Thank you for being the year I got to add two more cousins to my life a bright and creative 8 year old who has the power to bring down the world if she wanted to and a 14 year old girl who has more love in her heart than anyone I’ve known her age. These two are people I want to learn more from next year.
Thank you for being the year I finished college with the grades I wanted. I passed every course higher than I thought I would. Thank you for being the year I finally stayed in touch with someone after school/college because that gave me two amazing friends who understand me and we have created our own little support network for each other. They’ve helped me a lot with my mental health as well more than they will ever know. Thank you for being the year I pushed out of my comfort zone and met up with people who I wanted to see but was worried for whatever reason. That’s helped me keep a lot of friends I might have lost due to inactivity. Thank you for being the year I got my apprenticeship with on the 12th will be 6 months since I started in July. I have already learnt so much and met some amazing people who are so clever and experienced in life. The things they teach me I can’t always learn at college.
Thank you 2016 for not being a great year but a year that taught me a lot about what was important to me as a person and also who is important to me. Thank you for being the year of Self love.
