Dear 101 Followers,
We would just like to take a few minutes to thank you all for being amazing! As we said before, this was something that we set up for us, to improve our mood, and to maintain a positive perspective on life. We are so grateful that you have decided to share this journey with us!
On the 31st of December of 2012, two young Irish girls sat on their beds in a really amazing hotel in Kerry and decided that the next day was going to be the start of something amazing. 2013 has been known to us as the Year Of Fun! Each month we have planned something fun and exciting to look forward to… We’ve been to concerts, we’ve spent nights away, we’ve gone to festivals, we’ve had picnics, we’ve played golf (something utterly ridiculous for us!), we’ve gone rock climbing, we’ve sang Kodaline’s song High Hopes on the literal edge of the country as we held on to the rocks that were inches away from the deep Atlantic Ocean, we are going to go to a theme park (August’s adventure!) But most importantly, we’ve had so much fun…
Our challenge of a Year Of Fun was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Sure, times have been tough and we’ve cried, we’ve lost hope, we’ve felt lost… But we have learned so much about life, and the year isn’t even nearly over! We’ve learned about friendship and about how your friends are the family you choose for yourself… We’ve learned about perspective and how having a good attitude can make an incredible difference in your day to day life… We’ve learned about gratitude and how being thankful can change your life in ways you could only ever have dreamed of. We’ve gone from being content and ‘yeah-whatever’ about life to being soooo excited about what life has to offer! It’s getting to a stage where we are being kept awake at night with the excitement of life whereas before we were being kept up with fears, tears and worries.
We are only just over halfway through our year and we want to thank you so much for sharing our experiences with us. We want to thank you for your likes, for following us, for your comments, for laughing with us, for the awards you’ve given us, and for the friendships that have been made. You are all wonderful people – don’t ever forget that!
Have an absolutely amazing day folks!
With love always,
CB & CR
