Happy New Year, y'all!
2016 has treated me fairly well, i'm still alive and healthy. For that, i'm grateful and you should be too. Judging from what i've seen on social media, the past year has been a mix of emotions for everyone.

I've learned to accept my mistakes and allowed it teach me valuable lessons. To let go of toxic people and to move on from the past so I can put my whole heart, time and energy into what I love instead.
2016 has definitely taught me - now, more than ever - that life will reward you graciously when you do things with all your passion and love.
To be given the opportunity to travel so much has opened up my eyes to new cultures and taught me to be independent as well as self-preserving. The past year has tested my love life but i'm happy to still be with Desmond and we're counting on our 5th anniversary. I've made new amazing friends and kept my existing ones close. My family has also been nothing but supportive of the things I did and want to do.

I choose to focus on the good times, the great times.

For 2017,
always tell the people you love that you love them.
remind yourself there are better days ahead.
