Happy New Year

Well 2020, its been a blast! And I mean that….

I’ve fit so much in, done so much and tried to be positive the whole time. I believe this has been the reason I have come out of this unscathed and positive. Some of the good times from this year have been:

  • I went to Bournemouth to a sober group meeting up and it was amazing, meeting friends for life
  • Run a Nurses hands campaign providing pampering to many nurses in the Northern Care Alliance.
  • We managed to keep our running club going for a fair chunk of the pandemic, inspiring people to exercise throughout and still having people graduate with us following the C25K program.
  • Clothes swap and an ultra-challenge (50km) in Bury raising £2,000 for charity
  • Became a mental health first aider
  • Completed the Yorkshire 3 peaks & Snowdon (not on the same day)
  • Completed numerous Virtual ultra-challenges including Race to the Stones, lands’ end to john o groats, Jurassic coast and walk to the North Pole.
  • I celebrated 2 years sober, then more recently 800 days!
  • I made my plan for writing my book (but I know in reality this might take 2 years)
  • I have been accepted to university for my degree which starts in January
  • I bought my shiny new car, with my own pennies after paying lots of debt off
  • I learned (I use this term loosely) to paddleboard
  • I survived a pandemic whilst keeping a positive mind-set
  • I found my love of reading
  • I lost 2 stone
  • I made a whole host of wonderful new friends
  • I was shortlisted in the final for inspired women awards
  • I started a hiking group with 6 people in January and now have almost 200 members 🙈they don’t all attend at once!

It really has been a year that I have a lot to be grateful for.

Happy new year everyone and I hope next year is a positive & healthy year for you.

Thanks for the support, friendships and company this year.
