2015 has come to end and what better time to reflect on the year that was. Usually we get to the end of the year and think “where did the year go?” or “what did I achieve this year?” We tend to look back and focus on our hardships and struggles and forget to acknowledge the moments of achievements, no matter how small they may seem.

I will confess when the end of the year comes I look back and am never satisfied with what I’ve achieved. This is the perfectionist in me and the constant pressure I put on myself. I have promised myself that this year I will reflect on all the positive things that have happened and let go of the negative. I will be proud of my achievements, big or small. I will congratulate myself for getting through another year which had some of the lowest points of my life to date.

This year saw the establishment of See Through My Eyes as a not-for-profit organisation. What started as a blog is now an organisation making change in the lives of people with a vision impairment and the wider community. That is definitely something I can be proud of! The support you give from following this blog is something you can all be proud of!

Take some time to reflect on your year, remembering to focus on the positives. If you take a moment to do this, you will be surprised how much you have achieved and can be proud of yourself.

If you are going to set a goal for 2016, make sure it’s realistic and achievable. Don’t make it impossible or far-fetched. My goal for the upcoming year is to continue raising awareness of Stargardt’s Disease and other vision conditions and to reach even more people with this organisation.

2016 is going to be a massive year for See Through My Eyes and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Together we will make a difference and show the world how living with a vision impairment doesn’t make life any less fulfilling, rather we can achieve our goals despite our impairment.

Thank you for all your support.
