Dear 2016 self
So here I am at the end of 2017
I know every year you name a photo album on Facebook for the up and coming year and if anything 2017 should have been called curve ball.
This year will be full of challenges for you.
One of the biggest being learning to start again. Don't be afraid as you will make it out the other side with a smile on your face.
What has been your routine for many years will change but you will make a choice and stick up for yourself and what you believe in. Don't be afraid to have an opinion that is different. Everyone is different and people will respect you for it.
You will do lots of different things in the up and coming months. The dreams you've had for years of visiting places across the world will come true. You will see lots of places that you've seen in films and on TV shows and make some incredible memories.
You will meet friends you've known online across the world and travel further than you ever have before.
You will see how incredible your close friends are when you need them and how much laughter can make your sides hurt on great days out and catch ups.
Experiences will come your way and you will get the chance to do things you've wanted to do since you were young.
Don't be afraid in wanting to take your time in deciding how you want to start again. Everything happens for a reason and this time is yours for the taking now.
2017 will test you with many challenges but it will show you how well you can handle things and how strong you are
Love your 2017 self
