Dear 2018, please kick ass

This year has been one of the most influential years of my life. To say it has been bad would be unfair, but to say it has been perfect would be untruthful. Influential seems a fair judgement.

It was the year of many adventures, ranging from pretending to be a witch in Boscastle to getting lost in a lingerie store in Reykjavik. It was the year of broken friendships, kisses and uneven French braids. It was the year I learnt what it meant to hurt, to love and to be afraid. It was the year I fell in love with the girl in the mirror, but feared the power of that statement also. 

What am I hoping for from 2018? I'm really not too sure.

I'm hoping to learn, to grow and to love endlessly. What exactly that means, I'm not too sure. I'm hoping for happiness, but with that I expect to hurt as well. 

I have one resolution for the new year, and that is to accept that in that moment, I am enough. I will never be perfect, and no amount of resolutions will ever change that. I do not need to change, simply continue to love, to learn and to grow. 

I wish the same for you.
All my love,
Marti :)

      I'm not even going to begin to tell that story- it involves a very miffed boyfriend, a woman speaking Latvian and of course Charlotte and H :)
