As I'm writing this blog post, it's currently 11:41 pm pst. December 31st, and I'm lying in bed listening to my personal curated playlist on Spotify. Typically, I'm out with friends to welcome the new year —eating, partying, and celebrating away. This year however, I wanted a quiet evening at home, mainly because I'm paranoid of crowded places right now *insert scaredy cat emoji*... oh well.
2016 is rolling in in a few minutes and I wanted to reflect back on what this past year has meant to me. 2015 was an adventurous year full of amazing destinations: Dubai, Morocco, Venice, Israel, Hong Kong, Japan, and so many more with the most unforgettable experiences! I've also been very blessed with the success of the growth of my youtube channel and blog and met so many great people along the way. I've exceeded my goals and expectations for 2015 and have nothing but high hopes for the upcoming year!
A few things I wanted to share with you guys for 2016...
On taking the good with the bad:
"In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control; but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life." —Oprah Winfrey (choose to react positively!)
Keeping attainable expectations:
Go ahead and reach for the stars, but remember, even astronauts have to put in that work!
Don't be afraid to do something just because you're terrified of failing, failure is the stepping stone to success.
On moving forward:
Look ahead, you have a blank canvas in front of you, anything is possible.
On New beginnings:
Cheers, make 2016 the year of you!
Wishing you guys an abundant of health, happiness, success and nothing but the ultimate best and a fabulous new year!
