saying goodbye to 2016

As I sit here ruminating on the events of this past year both personal & just life in general, I have realized one very important thing. And as cliche or cheesy as it sounds, I have to remind myself yet again to be thankful for the blessings in my life. It's frustrating to think that I've become so negative and disillusioned by certain things that I've chosen (yet again) to focus on the negative. Thankfully & hopefully I'll have the new year to change my mindset. 

So here's to a couple of key words I will focus on in 2017:

SIMPLE

HOPEFULNESS

FOCUS

KINDNESS

LOVE

POSITIVITY

There's a lot of uncertainty that comes from a new year. But I'm tired of dreading what is to come by thinking of all the negatives that could happen. 2016 has been brutal. But here's just a few things I'm so so so thankful for:

Love

Family

Friends

Health

Blessings

I lose sight of these things and I know I'm probably generalizing a lot of things but gosh, it's still true nonetheless. So here's to the new year... I'm hoping for a good one for both you and me. :)
