New Beginnings and Happy Endings

Whoa. So the last two months has been an absolute whirlwind. From a new job to my first car and then my birthday celebrations. I'm so glad to be on holiday and finally have the time to take it all in. I seriously haven't had the chance to process it all. And in all honesty, I'm glad and grateful for that. Work has been so hectic, stressful, exciting, challenging and most importantly, fulfilling. Not being able to sit back and take it all in simply means that I have been on a fast track to the success I had been craving this year..
Buying my first car was completely terrifying yet exciting. Making a decision to let go of hard earned money is never easy. Even though it was a second hand I couldn't help feeling a sense of pride in accomplishing such a major milestone at the age of 21 on my own. And now that Ford holds a special place in my heart..
That car has since then been to various destinations, far and near. The most memorable trip being to the outskirts of Hillcrest on a journey to find the best paintba arena. And boy was that a journey! Okay, so it wasn't as far as Jhb or something but nevertheless it was truly epic. My six friends and I had made the decision to go paintballing for my birthday. And we stuck to that decision regardless of the fact that Durban was a dreary, rainy sight last Saturday. None of us has regretted that decision. From falling in the mud to getting shot in the face, we couldn't have had anymore fun. The rest of the day was just amazing as we sat around the lunch table relating the tales of the paintball fights.. sigh...

Oh there is so much to tell but I guess that's the beauty of experiences, the memory it leaves. That feeling of nostalgia.. 2013 is coming to and end and I continue to sense greater things to come.. So here's to New Beginnings & Happy Endings....


A special and huge thank you to all my friends for always being there and making this year, as every other, a memorable one... ♥
