The end of an era

We’re mere hours away from entering 2010. It’s not just a new year, but a new decade, which is pretty monumental. I’ve read a few articles about the ending of this terrible decade, which started with the 9/11 terror attacks and ended with a global recession. It’s doubtful that this decade will be missed, but I think everyone who has experienced it will remember it forever.

On a personal note, this decade has meant a lot of growth and development. In 2000, I was 14 years old so I have obviously come a long way from barely knowing myself to making my way in this world. I’ve finished my education (for now), loved and lost, discovered my passions and found some truly amazing friends along the way. So I think I will always smile when I think back to…what have ‘they’ called it now..the Noughties? But I’m glad to see it end.

I’m off to Paris to celebrate the end of this decade, I felt it needed a good send off. I have a 3/4 hour car journey to ponder my resolutions. I only have one at the moment: To be more organised. I’m so time poor, but instead of complaining about it more, I want to do something about it. Work harder and make more time for blogging and friends. You know, the important things in life 😉 What are your resolutions?

Happy 2010!

Lots of love,

    I'm going to work hard, be more active and spend less. Or at least, I'm going to try.
