“There comes a day when you realise turning the page is the best feeling in the world – because you realise there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.”
2015 for me started off pretty shit. I had shingles, this didn’t go away until late February (after having it since the previous December). I was in a job I hated and generally wasn’t enjoy life too much. In April I ended up in hospital with an infection, such fun! Things only started getting better for me in July when I finally found a job I love. I started to become the happy Laura I wanted to be. In August I went on holiday with my family and then boyfriend to Tenerife, it was nice to get away for 2 weeks. During these two weeks I got engaged – a month or so later this relationship ended. I decided it wasn’t what I wanted and it wasn’t making me happy. To be honest I had been feeling like this for nearly a year but decided to bottle up my feelings because I’m stupid. I have learned that you should never stay in a relationship if you are not happy at the end of the day you end up hurting yourself a lot more that you realise.
After the relationship ended I made a decision to be alone with 80 cats! I didn’t want to find anyone new or get myself into a new relationship. Well….. that went out the window.
“Every girl deserves a guy who can make her forget her heart was ever broken.”
Throughout my relationship breakdown there was one person who helped me a lot more than he will ever realise, he picked me up, put me back together and made me smile again. I found myself falling for him very quickly, we started spending more and more time together and now I’m happy to say he’s my boyfriend. He honestly is one of the nicest people I have met. I definitely wasn’t looking for anyone but I think that’s why it worked out. I read a great quote recently that sums it up perfectly “Sometimes you meet a person and you just click – you’re comfortable with them, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything.” For once in my life I can say I’m truly happy again. From the day it all started I have been the happiest girl and I finally feel like myself again. After than 2015 got better. I’m defintly ready to say Goodbye to 2015 and Welcome 2016. I cannot wait to see what a new year brings, I’ve already got some exciting things planned.
