Wrapping It Up

So there we have it – the top 10 posts of 2014 and I’ve got to say looking back at everything while I was putting this post together was very refreshing.

As we move into 2015 I’ve already got the first 3 months posts planned out and some very exciting changes that will help shape the future of the blog.

None of this could have been possible without you – the reader. Thank you for choosing to spend your valuable time on the blog. In the modern world we are all short of time, I truly appreciate that you choose to spend yours with me.

If I believed in luck I would wish you good luck with your ventures in the New Year, but I don’t. Luck is the lazy person’s self justification for their lack of trying.

Instead I wish that you believe in yourself, be consistent, work hard and play even harder!
