Wow, what a crazy 365 days I’ve had! I’m still kind of pinching myself in disbelieve over what this past year has given me; from filming five reality TV shows to becoming a Pure Elite natural bodybuilding professional, tattooing the majority of my torso, shooting for my second movie, hosting the UK Glamour Awards, celebrating my 30th birthday in Paris and finally regaining my belief in love after spending the last few years running for the hills as far away from commitment as possible.
This time last year I honestly believed I’d be a spinster forever, once bitten twice shy and all that, I literally had my future mapped out standing on my own two feet, me against the world yada yada yada. But that’s the excitement of life isn’t it, it’s never straightforward and rarely ends up how you’re expecting. It’s a kick up the arse that we all need, the leap of faith we hesitate to make, the choices we’d never have picked ourselves but work out to be the very best thing for us in the end, it just takes a little time and patience for us to finally realise each life lesson.
2017 has metaphorically thrown me into the stratosphere and back again and bizarrely I’ve loved every hair-raising adrenaline-fuelled second of it and I’m beyond buzzing for what 2018 will bring. I’m not one to make predictions because so far my life has been like nothing I could ever have imagined in my wildest of dreams – but I’ll toy with the notion of owning a llama, living in a lighthouse, filming a TV show about bi-lingual penguins and become a professional ping-pong player! I’m sure as hell up for everything and anything that life has to throw at me and I’ll be waiting with open arms and a great big grin at every obstacle and challenge.
Life is so insanely exhilarating and amazing if you find the balls to say yes to new adventures and step out of your comfort zone. If there’s one thing I’m taking from 2017 into the New Year then it’s the phrase ‘carpe diem’ seize the day – it’s by far the best way!
