I am not much of a risk taker although when I talk about how young I started travelling and the places I have lived, people think that I am brave. I usually say, no, that’s a normal life but to someone else who has never set foot out of their country, it may seem like the biggest deal.

This year has been a roller coaster ride for me. I mean really. My blog has done very well in terms of work opportunities, and I can only imagine what is in store for me from January 2015, onwards. It may not seem like a lot compared to your seasoned veterans, but it is a step forward in the right direction … finally.

I have learned a lot through friendships and relationships about love, trust, betrayal, doubt, humiliation, joy, etc, the list goes on. Although at times situations made me feel destroyed, they simultaneously made me stronger as a person. I have to learn to trust and love without expecting anything back from the other person. I have to put my faith in someone with the intention that they will do right by me. The same goes the other way around for people who have gotten to know me over the years or are still doing so.

I won’t take up much of your time but other than to say this. Take risks in life. I’m not saying be stupid and try and jump roofs for some views on Youtube. No, do not “do it for the vine”. What I mean is, just go for what you want in life. Here I am, on my way to the airport going to Barbados by myself. I have travelled on my own in terms of my work as a model but have never really travelled to what I consider “exotic” places on my own. I will be there for a few days, thinking about 2014. I know my friends are with their families and loved ones all over the world. I just made this decision to be by myself, get to know myself away from the noise and everyday distractions. I hope you take the time to do the same for yourself at some point between now and the New Year.

Thank you for supporting and reading my blog. I will see you again in 2015. Happy New Year !
