My year in review

So as 2018 draws to an end, it's that time of year when we naturally begin to reflect on what he had hoped for, what we had planned and what actually happened. As with all things in life, there is always bad mixed in with the good, and vice versa. We are fortunate to have smartphones with Cameras that take excellent photos and video, but it can all too easily become one big mess of hundreds of clips that end up being uploaded somewhere and forgotten about, or just too many to be practical to ever watch.

That is why I decided to pick out my favourite moments and immortalise them in a short video that highlights my year, and what a year it has been. As always with me, life seems to be a rollercoaster, people come and go, some leave their mark, others leave a trail of disaster, but others remain and stand the test of time. It is these people who have real value in life, sincerity is PRICELESS.

I know first hand how it feels to have people purporting to be friends, but they secretly have an agenda. In fact one such person was working behind the scenes, interfering in my life for a long time before I could actually provide hard evidence to prove it. Imagine a person working on your friends like a Cancer, slowly manipulating them over time, convincing them that a pack of lies is the truth. When I did finally confront them, I lost my friends, because I was angry with what they did and they were angry that I find out (or the methods I used to get evidence) but I'm so glad I uncovered the truth. Sadly in these situations, there is too much collateral damage in the process of uncovering the truth, for there to be any realistic chance of remaining friends, that is very sad.

On a positive note, this year has been a real adventure, with a trip to Amsterdam with my good friend, a trip to Dublin with a group of friends, then a trip to Stockholm for a friend's birthday as well as several trips to Cyprus. For me, what really matters is quality of life, travel and friends, all the rest is little more than a pipe dream. We are all on borrowed time and we can easily forget that, the only things that have true value are our friends, our feelings and our memories.

Happy New Year 2019
