The end of the year is always a period of reflection and everyone and their cat is looking back on 2017 and thinking, ‘What have I really done?’.
Usually this question would send me into a spiral of ‘fuck, I’ve done nothing for 365 days’ but this year, I can proudly say that I did a shit-ton more than I thought I was going to.
Here are my top three:
- Passed my driving test – Third time is definitely the charm 😉 And check out Nyx the Nissan – the shiniest she has ever looked. 2. Moved house – It’s warm, its filled with kittens and I love it.
3. Got a new job – I’m not going to lie, I was freaking out about my lack of career progression (or y’know… having a career at all) but December threw me a life line. In 2018, I’ll start working for a fantastic charity and I cannot wait.
2018 is going to be a helluva year no matter what happens, but I can happily look back on 2017 and know that I got stuff done.
I do really recommend looking back on your year and thinking up your own ‘done’ list. Its important to focus on the positive steps that you’ve made throughout the last 12 months. This year has been a dud for a lot of people and downright cruel to many others but, even if you struggle to think of 3, any acknowledgement that you did a Good Thing will help you feel more confident going into 2018.
So, what’s going on your 2017 Done List?
