out with the OLD: 2016 • in with the NEW: 2017

2016 seems to have been a test year. It tested everything I had, it was the kitchen sink of years. I have been on a roller coaster I couldn’t seem to get off of and once I got off I realized I was a lot stronger than when the year started. I think I learned a lot this year and my nerves, emotions and will power was truly put to the test. I feel like I passed. 🙂 so going into next year I am ready for 2017 and am determined to not let the things that pushed me this year get to me again. I have grown as a person and am ready for whatever 2017 has in store for me. I am ready for the next chapter! I hope the next chapter is filled with lots and lots of good books and no slumps!!

Happy 2017, My Friends!
