Happy 2017! I hope your New Year’s was fantastic! This post is being published a little later than I had originally planned but is something I still want to share. Despite the common opinion that 2016 was horrible and the tragedies that occurred, it was personally my favourite year yet. For me, 2016 was a year of personal development. After many years of struggling with my mental health and happiness, I took matters into my own hands and completely changed my mindset. I can now I say I am the happiest I have ever been. This year I worked hard and am proud with what I accomplished. I have been blogging, working at a clothing boutique, and doing an online course with Parsons and Teen Vogue while simultaneously graduating from high school and starting business school. I have met so many incredible people along the way and am very thankful for all the loved ones in my life.
I have high hopes that 2017 will be even more amazing than 2016. This year my main focus is on self care, being present, and trying new things. I celebrated this New Year’s Eve with my favourite people and started 2017 with a Polar Bear Swim! Let me know in the comments what your favourite part of 2016 was!
