Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

2019 has been a good year for me. Sure it’s had its low moments but compared to its immediate predecessors; it hasn’t been half bad at all.

I have achieved some great things, things I previously wouldn’t have even aimed for.

I have discovered more about myself and the kind of person I want to be.

I have developed new friendships and reaffirmed old ones.

I have experienced lots of new things and learnt many lessons.

Overall, it’s been a year of growth, of adventure and of new beginnings.

So what could I possibly put on my Christmas list for you to bring…?


I don’t know how you fair at non materialistic gifts? Whether you have a special area of your workshop designed to fulfill the needs of more spiritualistic requests? Or if you can even aid in things that cannot be wrapped up with a ribbon?

But I suppose the thing I want most for Christmas this year is determination.

Determination to make 2020 an even better year than this one. Determination to keep growing, to keep learning, to keep experiencing new things even if fear tries to get in the way. Determination to accept the negative things that have or will happen as part of my journey but to not let them hold me back or define me. Determination to keep reaching for the stars and not let anybody, including myself, make me feel stupid for believing I can get there.

I do possess some determination already; but I feel like I allow it to dwindle and falter. I understand that we have to overcome obstacles in order to get to what we aim for, yet I feel that with a little more determination under my belt I can rise above the obstacles and the moments of self-doubt with more gumption and not sit in the negative for too long. I want to achieve so many things that I need to increase my levels of determination tenfold in order to get there.

So, I don’t know how you would package it, I’m not too bothered about a pretty bow or for it to be under the tree. Just however it comes, I would be hugely grateful.

But if that fails… A Fitbit Versa 2. Thank you.

Best wishes,

Laura Betts
