Is that another year gone already? Where did it go?
It was back in January when I started writing my first blog but it only feels like a few weeks ago. Life goes so fast it is quite scary.
It has been quite a year for me. I have been to some brilliant workshops, seminars and courses. It is only when I look back, I realise just how much I have crammed in. Heathcote Beauty is going from strength to strength and life is pretty sweet, although, as much as I love my job, I am looking forward to taking time off and chilling out with my lovely family.
The Christmas decorations are up, the tree is crammed with baubles and beautiful lights and the house looks very festive. I have also finished shopping for Christmas presents and all I need to do now is the wrapping and the food shopping, so I’m feeling pretty smug with myself at the moment. Although, I would be even happier if I could find those Christmas decorations that I bought in this years January sale. I will probably put my hand straight on them in the first week after Christmas!
This is the one time of the year when I think about having a normal job. Being self employed is great and I wouldn’t change that for the world, but I do miss the crazy works Christmas parties. A client said that I should crash someone else’s Christmas party and pretend to be ‘Louise from Accounts’. Everyone would be so drunk no-one would notice! Maybe I should organise a “Secret Santa” with myself? Better still, perhaps I should give myself a Christmas bonus, now that is a good idea!
If the year has gone fast for you too, now is the time to slow down and reflect on a year coming to the end. For me there have been so many highs and inevitably, a few lows too. I’m grateful for them all and I love my life so much.
I hope you love your life, your family and that you remember to love yourself too.
Happy Christmas and a happy, prosperous and healthy New Year to you all.
Lots of love
