Blogmas | A Year Of Change

Change is an extremely normal, yet often scary thing and 2014 has been full of it for me. I started this year out in January living down in Kent, at university, without a blog and in a 2 year relationship. I'm ending the year living back in Essex, as a single university graduate and blogger who started a new job in London on Monday. It sounds like a lot, but actually, I am so happy with the way my 2014 turned out. If you know my lovely friend Kelsey, you'll know that I've sort of taken inspiration for this post from her recent post, so it's worth reading that first. 
Twenty-fourteen was a great year. Some people may find that hard to believe, as it's been an emotional one. There's not a huge visible change between who I am now, compared to who I was at the beginning of the year, but it sure seems like it for me.
2014 had happiness. It had laughter, it had heartbreak, it had tears and it had friendships. It had love and it had loss. But most of all, it had memories. Although it may surprise some of you reading this, I wouldn't change anything that happened this year. I have come to the end of 2014 still growing, and still learning to love myself more and make myself happy, but I have come so far from where I was in January. 
I have learnt that people who don't have time for you aren't worth caring about. I have learnt that sometimes good things are going to end, because that's what happens in life. I have learnt that you can't expect someone else to love you unless you well and truly love yourself first. I have learnt that when one door closes another one will open. I have learnt that the adult world is a scary concept. I have learnt that being a graduate isn't easy, but if you stick it out you will find a job that you want. I have learnt that it's not about who you've known the longest, or who lives the nearest to you, but people who well and truly care about you will step up and be there for you when you need them. I have learnt that my best friends can live miles away, but you can still know how much they love you daily. I have learnt that music is always there. I have learnt that quotes can make a huge difference.
That's a lot of learning, and I hope 2015 will be full of it too. I'm not going to go into all the amazing things that 2014 has brought, as that's going to go in another post. I just wanted to show you that a year of change is often a good thing, as scary as it seems. It's been a hard one at times, but right now, in this very moment I am happy and content.
