2016 has been one heck of a roller coaster. It’s had it’s fair share of WTF moments, a ton of stressful- maybe even slightly depressing periods- but it sure left its mark. Aside from the personal milestones I’ve landed on this year, the more important ones have to be realizations of humility and gratitude. This year, I’ve learned to be gracious. Enough to accept when I’ve made a mistake or hurt someone or to admit what I don’t know. I’ve also learned to be thankful, especially in times when I feel lost, frustrated, or alone. Most of all, I’ve learned to love. To give the best of myself to the people around me, to help spread positivity and bring out the best in them. 2016- you’ve been one hell of a teacher. To everyone reading this right now, THANK YOU for being a part of my year. I love you guys! Cheers to an even better 2017!
