End of a year, end of a decade

Blimey! What a year.

This year has been an amazing one, one I am not likely to forget in a hurry which I am so grateful for. But the other day I posted some pictures on my Instagram account from the last 10 years, and it wasn’t until I went hunting for pictures that I realized just how full my life has been.

I realized that over the last 10 years I have changed so much. I have been and seen some amazing places and even surprised myself in my capabilities. Just to break down the years I will give you a quick over view of the last 10 years


2009 – I turned 20, I started my photography journey, I got engaged, I was unemployed until near the end of the year, I was insecure in myself, and I before the year ended became single.

2010 – I exercised and felt better in my skin, I got a job, I met someone who would become my all, I went to Prague with my mum.

2019 – This year I quit my job, traveled A LOT, met people from all over the world and befriended some, I met Melanie Murphy at SITC, I saw Lindsey Sterling perform, I turned 30, I got a new job in a new career path, I’ve started to re-build connections with people, I am starting to be happier in myself and my life, and the icing on top of the cake I met David Tennant 

I am happy to say that I am improving with my mental health and well being, I am becoming happier in myself. Yeah there are still areas that need improving and there are long term goals that I am no where near close to, but I know I am on the right path.

How do the last 10 years look for you?
