2016 will be remembered for many things. From the European referendum, a new Conservative PM, party leadership wrangles, Donald Trump becoming the next US President, the perception of 2016 is of chaos, panic and serious worry. However, as I wrote about last month, it is important to retain perspective and appreciate the simple things in life.
Reflecting on the last twelve months, I feel satisfied with what I have experienced and achieved. This is because I have been through several experiences this year. Such examples include moving to a new IT role in LCC, taking part in a poetry slam, and running the Scouse 5k charity run. This has allowed me to push out of my comfort zone and learn new skills in the process, to grow personally and professionally.
I have also had the pleasure of attending many events. Examples include IFB2016, Weightmans, Downtown in Business, Professional Liverpool and others, where I have met, talked and listened to plenty of interesting people, from Liverpool and beyond. These include coaches, innovators, company directors, chief executives, marketeers, enthusiasts, artists, poets and other inspirational storytellers. It is has been delightful to listen, socialise and document my experiences in this blog. Therefore I wish to sincerely thank all who have inspired, encouraged and supported my blogging endeavours. Writing gives me great pleasure, and I am looking forward to publishing and sharing more in the future.
And what for 2017?
My intention is to continue pushing myself, by learning and growing to become the best I can be. This includes my work for LCC, my blog writing, poetry, helping others and devoting time to family and friends.
On a final note, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you all in 2017!
