I've never done one of these posts before, but after reading my friend Ashley's year in review, I thought it would be a good exercise for me. Maybe you're like me and just want 2016 to end. There was a lot of loss this year, and I also got really sick. I felt like 2016 was a completely terrible year, but that's because I can so easily focus on the negative and forget about the good.
I got caught up in what went wrong this year and on what didn't happen. I'm really glad I took the time to go through my year and see what actually happened. Since getting sick, I've had a new appreciation for life, a new kind of gratitude. Sure, 2016 was rough in areas, but there was a lot of good and if it weren't for 2016, I wouldn't be so excited for 2017. I'm pumped to take what I learned this year into the next.
