2016 had its share of ups and downs, good and bad. Overall, I have to say, as the clock turned to midnight and 2017 was upon us, I felt an overwhelming sense of happiness. No year is perfect. There are always going to be occurrences beyond our control. That being said, I cannot help but feel content. 2016 was the year I grew the most, gained my footing and learned how to pay attention to my wandering mind. So as this new year gets into full swing I would like to take a look back at some of my favorite moments of the year gone by.
