Personal | 2014 Reflections

What a year 2014 has been! It has been pretty quiet here on Pencil Stitches but that just means life in general has been busy. I wanted to do a 2014 post, as one of the reasons I love to keeping this blog is being able to look back across the years and see what was happening in life at that moment in time.

2014 has been a CRAZY year.... its up there with 2013! We learnt a lot from this year. Australia taught us to be more open. Whether this was more open to meeting people or more open to what we wanted to do in life, or just to keep our hearts open as you never know what adventures are around the corner for you.

Moving abroad to live and work was a huge shock to our system. One that we love and one that we don't regret doing. We have seen and done things, most people will never get to experience in their lifetime. People don't truly 'get' it unless they do it themselves. Alex & I have learnt to aways try and step outside of our comfort zone as we know great things come from stepping outside of it. We do things that are right for 'us' as at the end of the day, we are the ones that are living this life and thats the greatest thing we have learnt.

Moving back to the UK was a large shock for the people around us as they couldn't understand why we would want to leave such a beautiful country to come back to the UK with no jobs. We knew it was the right thing for us to do though. We made sure that it worked for us. It was one of the hardest decisions to make, but if we knew what 2014 had in store for us back when making the decision. We would of made that decision with a lighter heart. Hindsight is always a good old thing...

2014 was the year for:

• Taking a big jump and leaving our home in Australia to move back to the UK.
• Travelling to new parts of the world to open our eyes to new cultures and new ways of thinking.
• Ticking off things on our bucket list.
• Settling back into UK life.
• Reflecting at what we wanted out of our lives.
• Learning new skills & passions.
• Starting my business Sincerely May.
• Moving down to Cornwall to create a new home & life for ourselves.
• Meeting like minded people.
• Living life and living the adventure.

2015 is going to be a year for:

• Pushing my business more
• Illustrating more and just trying to be more creative in general
• Capturing more moments as they happen
• & most importantly exploring this world we live in more....

Happy 2015 to you all! I hope this year is kind to you :)
