My 5 Most Popular Posts of 2015 & Shares from Other Sites Around the Web

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty surprised that 2015 is nearly over. My life has changed dramatically this year – it’s hard to believe just how much.  I quit my job of four years, left a city I’d lived in for seven, moved overseas (again) and adopted a puppy.  I travelled to Romania, Germany and Sweden as well as starting a new life in Spain.  I started a vegan meetup, was featured in the New York Times and published a book.

Change is hard, and the first half of the year (not making change, but rather anticipating it – which I sometimes think is the hardest bit) was one of the hardest of my life. But in the second half I reaped the rewards of the difficult change, and has been one of the most rewarding times in my life.  Especially holding my first book in my hands for the first time, when I cried with joy.  I also achieved one of my lifelong dreams – being in the New York Times.  Here’s to hoping 2016 continues with the good trend!

How has your 2015 been?  What were your highlights?
