A look back on 2017 and forward into 2018

Hi guys,

I know towards the end of this year I haven’t written many blog posts. To be honest with you guys, so much has happened in my life, changing a lot of things and sending my life down a different path. However, because of this, I feel like I have truly found myself, making 2017 the best year so far for me and I am now so excited for the next year.

The first major change is that my boyfriend of three years and I split up in the month of October. For the first couple days I was so devastated, after being with him for three years I thought I would be with him in the long run, had planned post-Uni with him, we had so many plans. The only way I’ve rebuilded myself was because I had so many amazing people around me at University. It has taught me who my true friends are and who I can 100% depend on. I am so strong now, I came out of the relationship as the bigger person, it wasn’t working and deep down I knew that, but being on my own has made me my happiest self. I can wear what I want, be who I want and see and go where I want. I am looking forward to 2018 for just looking after myself and building upon my character.

Another big thing that happened in 2017 was obviously going off to University and moving out of the family home. It has made me mature so much and I feel so happy and independent, living around my friend 24/7 is the most fun I’ve ever had. I am loving my course and I am so excited to go back in the new year to see everyone and get back into my University routine.

In summary, what I’m trying to get across is don’t be scared of change. 2017 has been my year of change, things I though would never happen did, but I have come out of it all happier, stronger and more determined in life. It sounds so cheesy and cliche, but I am just in the best mindset I have ever been in.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have an amazing new year, look out for my weekly blog posts!

All my love,

Coffee and Coats XX

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your breakup! However, I can definitely agree that such tough experiences can make us come out stronger. My 2018 was all about change and uncertainty as well, and it has definitely made me a more resilient person. Wishing you a fantastic new year:)
