For those of you who don’t know, the “Rest and Be Thankful” is a stretch of road in Scotland near Loch Lomond. It is aptly named as the climb is so long and steep that it was traditional for travellers to rest at the top, and be thankful for having reached the highest point.

For me, 2012 can be summed up quite nicely using this analogy… and that’s not because I upgraded from a Nissan Micra to a Vauxhall Corsa in June this year!

It’s been a busy year at Kissing With Confidence, and I’ve loved every minute of it.  My role has developed at an alarming rate of knots, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My personal highlight was the London event we hosted in October, which was great to be a part of. The whole team attended and we had a blast. Most importantly, so did those who came along on the night. A special mention should also go to all those who I have worked with on numerous projects, or met at networking events in the past year. Thanks for making it a year to remember and I hope to hear more from you in 2013.

Personally, I’ll be tucking into my turkey on Christmas day this year being thankful for what I have. My best friend spent the first 6 months of this year in hospital – and he’s still trying to reach the top of that road. I’m thankful that he has the chance to make that journey though, and I’m sure we’ll raise a glass or two at New Year together.

Like me, I hope that you take the time to rest over the break – and remember that even though we all have a road to climb, we should be thankful when we get to the top.
