Girl, Where Do You Think You’re Going?

Now that is something I’m never going to try and figure out again. The other day I was re-reading the post I wrote at the beginning of this year with my goals for 2017 Here and realised quite a few had been reached against all odds! And the odds are the 2 D words (so you know not just any odd hurdle…), no need to spell them out.

I might not know where I’m going (seriously after this year, I have no idea!) but I’ve been to some amazing places this year and as the sun slowly starts to set on 2017, I can confirm the following (this is probably going to sound like an empty list of platitudes and cliches but here goes…) :

  • Resilience is a force to be reckoned with
  • The worst of times can be linked to the best of times in mysterious ways. For example the weather on the day of my dad’s funeral was absolutely amazing, perfect, unseasonably warm and sunny. 2017 was destined to be the worse year ever but I have survived and actually had some amazing moments, there is always light and hope.
  • Music is more powerful than I ever thought, listening to Lemonade by Beyoncé has got me through some dark times and seeing Adele live was pretty special
  • Even though sunsets represent the end of the day, I have a bit of “a thing” for them and see them in a very positive light, not just because they are beautiful (3 of my favourite ones from this year are below, I am very grateful I got to see such amazing ones this year…) but also because, as with 2017, I have learnt that sometimes the end is actually the beginning

This is a bit of a random post, I will definitely write one at the end of the year to go over how many of those goals I reached!

As for 2018, come to mama…

PS: yes there are a few Lady Gaga “Joanne” references in this post…

  1. I love your posts. They show growth and resilience! Take care of you that baby. Always here for you from across the pond. ❤️
    Today, I took my life back and will no longer allow Robert and Casey to use those babies as emotional pawns to control me. I haven’t seen them for a year. My heart breaks everyday. It’s not within my control to fix this. Although they gave me the impression if, I kept jumping through their hoops it would some how get me to my goal. My life minus the shackles begin tomorrow. P.S. Gavin just got diagnosed with Type1 diabetes.

  2. You are such an inspiration Adele! You’ve dealt with a lot this year but still stand strong. Here’s to a wonderful 2018 where you are fully rewarded for your brilliance x
