2016 was certainly a year of ups and downs. It had obstacles, heartbreaks, extremely hard moments, but beautiful moments too! As I sat down to write my plans for the last week of 2016, I reflected in everything this year brought that has made me stronger! I developed creatively, felt heartbreak but found love too, traveled, graduated, faith became stronger and really matured in how I view life in general. Many things in our life will come unexpectedly but it’s up to us how we will react to them. We can sit and reflect in all the negative or we could look back and see the lessons that each event we went through has provided.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t be excited for 2017 and all the “new new” but also reflect how even though 2016 came with many “wtf” moments (Trump winning the election for example) we also had beautiful moments too! Don’t stay up until midnight to see the old year leave but rather to see the new year come in! May you have the courage to have new hopes, aspirations, and resolutions for this New Year! Don’t be afraid to make goals. “Setting goals gives your dreams a plan” & like my boyy Walt Disney would say, “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them”!
Have a Happy New Year corazones! This firework show is amazing & when I saw the capture I had got?!?! Heart eyes emoji! Anyhoo, God willing, I’ll be toasting in the New Year from my favorite bar in Napa Rose inside the Grand Californian with drinks from my favorite bartender, Joe! Cheers! Have fun, be safe and let’s be ready to welcome 2017! 2017 will be amazing! Know it, feel it, and embrace it!
