On the one had, I had the good fortune of travelling the world, and on the other, this was the year that I experienced my first significant loss.
Now more so than ever, am I aware of just how beautiful and volatile life can be. And it is for this reason, that the philosophy of, living each day to its fullest (as cliche as it sounds) underpins by being and existence.
As my father would always say - be the kind of person who leaves a positive mark on the world.
My goal for 2015 is to explore more of this incredible world and give back in which ever way I can. I will focus on my health and well-being.
I want to make the most of each day and make each day count.
I am thankful beyond words for the opportunities and experiences I've enjoyed and the people I've met along the way - who have each left their mark on my journey.
But most of all, I owe thanks to YOU, for reading this post and my blog.
For now, I choose to reflect on the positive, highlighting some of my favourite adventures of 2014. From walking the red carpet in LA, alongside Leonardo Di Caprio, to snorkelling the beautiful depths of the Maldives, to experiencing the most terrifying and exhilarating bungee jump off Auckland Bridge.
I leave you with the thought 'blessed are the curious for they shall have the adventures'.
Happy new year to all of my gorgeous readers, and here's to a prosperous 2015.
