It is so scary to think that by the end of this week we will have entered a new year. 2013 for me has been a year of resilience. More than ever before I have been knocked down and had to find it deep within me to gather myself towards myself and pick myself up over and over again. I took some time away from this blog the past two weeks in order to reflect and centre myself. The days have been absolutely gorgeous, Cape town is certainly showing off this summer, and I have felt it a waste to spend time cooped up inside on my laptop. I also spent less time of social media in general and focused on enjoying every moment with friends and family without feeling the need to record or snap every adventure. I do hope that 2014 will be a prosperous one and a year of growth. My only New Years Resolutions are to aim to be happy and healthy.
