Happiful December Issue

I read something the other day that really stopped me in my tracks. It said: “There’s only one month left of this decade – make it count.” It’s funny how fast milestones creep up on you – the end of another year, a new decade on its way. Soon it’ll be 100 years since the roaring 20s, and in the blink of an eye, those kids born in the millennium will no longer be teenagers. Reflect on all the small victories, and give yourself credit. Even if the place you’re in right now isn’t exactly where you want to be – emotionally or physically – when you look back over how much has changed in 365 days, I hope it can be a sign of a more positive situation you might find yourself in by this time next year. Our incredible cover star Lauren Mahon is a fantastic example of this. In the past three years, she’s battled breast cancer, founded #GIRLvsCANCER, co-hosted the podcast ‘You, Me and the Big C’, and won countless awards and accolades. She’s come so far in such a short space of time, and going forward we know she’ll continue to be an unstoppable force of nature.
