I started 2015 by going to bed early and completely missing the countdown for the first time in years. I wasn't in the happiest of places and was quite pleased to see the back of 2014 to be honest. As the new year came round, I decided to change this attitude and mindset. Besides, a positive mind equals a positive life. What did I want to do this year? What goals did I want to set and how am I going to achieve them? I was single for the first time in years, I'd just gone part time at a new job to focus on my blog and channel and life was fairly good. Little did I know all of this was ahead of me...
