To me, 2016 was full of mixed emotions. In some parts it was amazing, but in contrary it also brings me down to the point where I could not even believe. There were so many turmoils happened in my life until when I tried to look back to reflect on 2016… I somehow lost my memory.
Really, I could not recall clearly what happened each months, perhaps simply because some months were so hard to be went through. But anyway, despite what had happened, I’m still thankful as I am alive, well and breathing, surrounded by my loved ones. They say what does not kill you makes you stronger, right? 🙂
Now I won’t talk more about the low points, instead let’s just focus on the highlights. Yes, 2016 was still a year to remember and a lot of it had to do with love, patience, and courage.
2016 was the year that I felt the closest to my family. They have been a major part of last year and I hope to continue it for many many years ahead. I spent a lot of time with my mum and brother, and also my extended family. We had a family holiday which we haven’t done in years and we also managed to go through difficult times together. We are now stronger as a unit and I can’t be more thankful.
Last but not least, I took a leap of faith and said yes to a lifetime commitment with an amazing man. Our story is no fairy tale – we had our baggages, differences, and also our disagreements. Our engagement is just a start – the road ahead is not actually crystal clear, but we both believe in our love and decided to walk the road and start to build a life together. We had to go through a lot to be where we are now, and for once in my life, I am trying to hold on to faith and let God lead the way. We have our plans and said our prayers, let’s hope they will be a reality in 2017.
Anyway – that’s all for my 2016 recap. I’m just an ordinary person with lots of hopes and dreams for the new year. Not only for myself and my loved ones, but also for the world.
May we all be happy, healthy, and successful. May the world be more peaceful and kind.
2017, let’s do this!!! x
