State Of Me

For a while it had started to look like my life was stagnating to a large degree. For several years I remained in the same job, lived in the same flat, enjoyed the company of (mostly) the same friends, remained single whether it suited me or not (and there were times for both) and generally speaking one year looked pretty much like another. In retrospect now I can see how certain events in my life have turned out to be surprisingly significant in retrospect and have started the process of giving a different shape and feel to my life.
At the end of 2013 my father died. By the end of 2014 I had seriously fallen out with someone who I had thought was one of my closest friends - that relationship has never been repaired and it's breakdown to be honest probably hit me harder than my father's death. By this point I had resolved that in some significant ways I really needed parts of my life to change. 2015 was the year that brought me a nearly catastrophic failure in my health, a significant shift in my perspective on life and at the end of the year - a promotion at work with a transfer to a new service.
2016 has been interesting too. I started the new job at the new service with the new team and new tenants. That was all pretty new! I had a major upheaval when my new landlords tried to hike up my rent by 40%! There have been various other odds and sods in the mix as usual. Friendships have had their ups and downs, world politics has gone seemingly insane and I have started my first proper relationship in eight years! Life has continued as normal but just lately (comparatively speaking) there have been some major changes in most significant aspects of my life and I am pleased to report that for the most part they have been changes for the better. Lets see what 2017 has to offer...
