Boy have I changed over the last few years. It’s been a journey and it's had its challenges. I was thinking about how I used to handle things the other day… like when things didn’t go the way I’d expected. You know that feeling?

Hi everyone, Wow, can you believe it has hit 2014 already! For years now, at the beginning of each year, I’ve written down about five goals for myself. Last year, they included trying to lose a few kilo’s, finally being able to run 5 kilometres without stopping, studying my Japanese more and a few others.
