Goodbye 2016| The Review and Thank You’s

Hello sweet peas, and happy New Years Eve!! 😀 ❤

Wow, what a year 2016 has been!

This year started out pretty tough – I was being bullied by someone really close to me, and after maybe a year of it I finally told the people around me. Life was pretty messy for a while, but I can happily say now that I am no longer friends with that girl or the two other girls that were like her. I’m not going to go into more detail than that, but I want to tell you all this much so that you know that if you are in a similar situation you can and will get through it. Sometimes it can make it a little easier if you know someone else has gone through something similar, and at the end of it things turned out ok 🙂 ❤

However, as I have found out sometimes when you lose these sorts of people you realise you haven’t actually lost anything, and they most certainly weren’t friendships. instead I can now fully appreciate the friends I  do have ❤ We’ve had some rough times that we’ve all faced but we have all got there 🙂 (and guys if you kittens are reading this thank you!)

So despite the rocky start my year actually turned into one of the best ever! Feel free to look super smug now because yes you lot are part of that! 😀 I finally discovered YouTube, made a YouTube channel with my bestie, started a blog which I ditched for a month then returned to and made into an amazing place that I am super proud, made so many friends and have put a permanent smile on my face ❤

Outside the internet I participated in our school production, auditioned for this ears one, and next years, wrote several songs with Anju as well as piano solos, completed piano exams (!!!), done school exams, and made so many friends at and outside of school 🙂 ❤

When I look back the year I remember so many amazing moments… and I know that no way in hell would I have predicted this a year ago! Lui of 2015 had a lot to come that she never could’ve imagined.

Shall I do some shout outs?

Disclaimer: I won’t mention everyone because guys I have the worst memory and I would spend like 10000 words on it 😉

  • Oh and just one more… The amazing Anju. You all know how much I love this girl ❤ Sorry Anju I didn’t put you at the top, but as I always say “the diva always arrives fashionably late” ❤ You are just the most amazing friend on the planet, and no words can possibly do you justice so to put it way too simply, thank you 🙂 luv ya, and I can’t wait to binge watch TV with you 😉 ❤ You’ve got me through some hard times, stood by me, and been by my side dancing and singing with me at the best times! ❤ ❤

I feel like I am doing my acknowledgments for a novel haha 😀 Although, I promise if I write a book I will mention each and everyone of you 😉 My editor will hate me but hey! 😉

I definitely haven’t thanked enough or all of you who make an imprint in my life, and I apologise for that! But to all of you who have believed in me, and taken a chance with this random-15 year-old- kiwi girl – who plays the piano and thinks she can therefore write a blog – thank you so much ❤ You are the reason I do this 🙂

And thank you to those of you offline for your continuous support, and for reading my posts 🙂 I love being able to share this little world with you ❤

Thanks for providing a safe place for me, and for being there for me this year 🙂 I don’t think you’ll ever know how many times you have been here for me when I needed someone this year, but know that you were 🙂

Love you all so so much ❤ Have an amazing new Year, and I can’t wait to see what you all write about your year 🙂

Here’s to 2017 being another amazing year

Lui xx ❤ ❤

  3. Aww this is such a lovely positive post that was really sweet to read! It’s so refreshing when you get rid of those toxic friendships and realise that they really weren’t friendships at all. Life is too short to waste on negative people. It sounds like you’ve got lots of lovely people around you though 😊 such a sweet post! xx

  4. You have definitely turned your year around! Well done. It’s never easy being bullied and to be bullied by supposed friends is even worse. You’re a tough wee chick & I’m so glad to have found you on this world wide web.. Next time I’m home, will have to meet up in person (whoa scary thought!) and have a proper chat!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Looking forward to seeing more from you next year 🙂
