This year has been one of the hardest years for myself. After losing my mother just before Christmas 2012, which radically changed my life and left me with no sense of direction, I’ve spent the majority of this year just trying to live with no real push or drive.
I’ve had people take advantage of my position mentally and use me for my skills, position, or contacts in my work for their own personal gain. This has come to an abrupt stop this month.
This year I have had a lot of friends walk out of my life, which at first hurt me a lot, but then I realised as those walked out, the ones who stayed started to really highlight their friendship, I would even go as far to say their worth. I’m no longer worried about the people who walked out of my life as I’m now more concerned with the people who are still here.
I am sat here writing this off a veranda looking over the Mediterranean sea, I now live in Oxford Circus in central London and I have a studio in Shordich one of the creative hubs in London, as well a lot of clients approaching me for bigger and better work in the new year. My life has finally started to take a turn for the better after such a heavy trauma that happened in my life.
I also have had a fantastic woman walk into my life, from a distance people seem to judge the situation because of her work, but I haven’t had some one to support me as she does since my family who are back in Wales.
So with this all said I can now say that after a year I finally feel like I can see which direction I’m heading again. I’m going to be taking the rest of the year off to spend time with my family and to just enjoy my new sense of life. I’ll be coming back to everything in January and Oh my I’m going to be coming back with an entire year of angst built up inside from not being able to concentrate on working, so prepare yourselves for an overly active ADVaughan again.
