Hey there friends!
Well, today is the last day of 2016! Crazy, huh?! I feel like it was just yesterday when I was ringing in 2016. This year has been a year full of craziness. 2016 has brought trouble, but has also brought joy; that we forget to recognize about the year. Sometimes I feel like when we are about to ring in a new year, we look at all the negative things that happened & forget about the positive things. Sounds cliche, but we need to look at the happy things that occurred in the year! For me, I have found happiness with who I am & what I value. In the year before, I compared myself to everyone, but this year I told myself to love who I am & the way that Christ created me. With that being said my 2016 resolution was resolved, to love myself the way that God loves me, and that way my little happy for 2016.
As for 2017, my goal for this year is to continue to not compare myself to those around me, but as well live a life of pure JOY. I chose this word to be a reminder of me for the entire year. If I ever feel down I will remind myself of joy; to show happiness & a life of love.
So if you’re stuck on a New Years Resolution, think of a word to live by for 2017. I hope that this year I can find JOY and all situations.
Happy 2017 friends!!! Best wishes for this year.
