2016 has been so many things to me. Like the many others that passed, it had its share of the good and the bad. However unlike the rest, it has also brought so many huge changes in my life. Or maybe I’m just thinking this because good old 2016 was the ultimate adulting year for me (yet) in all aspects – career, family, love, friends and foes, relocation.. basically everything.
Looking at 2016 in general, I’d say that the prevalent feeling would be gratitude. I am a girl with so many dreams, plans and ambitions but I have never pictured life at 26 to be like this. Not at all. God has amazed me in so many ways and He continues to just leave me in awe at how things have been turning out. He answered so many of my prayers and has given me so much more than I have asked for and thought I needed. God really provides and He truly is my Creator. I still have so many things on my list because hello, I’m human and honestly, when you experience more of life and see all the wonderful things it has to offer, you can’t help but want more. That’s a human thing. But it’s also vital to keep yourself grounded and that you do by always being in touch with the story of how you began.
While I haven’t exactly furnished myself a New Year’s resolution, I affirm that 2017 will be another great year for me and my loved ones. My top prayers are still the same – happiness and good health for me, Mark and our families. On the side, I am praying for success, prosperity and growth. Of course, all these I am and will continue to work hard for.
How was your 2016?
What are you looking forward to this 2017?
Thank you for reading my blog posts, dear reader. I know I haven’t really written much last year (OMG it’s so surreal to refer to 2016 as ‘last year’) compared to 2015 but I will endeavor to dedicate more of my time writing this 2016! Let me know what you want to read more of. As always, I appreciate your thoughts, comments and messages.
I am wishing you and your families a bountiful and #blessed 2017! Let’s work our asses off to get the year that we deserve. God bless you! 🙂 #
