It may not seem like it but 2016 was quite a difficult year for me but it was also very meaningful to me. I struggled with a major quarter life crisis. Things haven’t really turned out the way I have expected them to be. But you know me, I always take things positively. I believe that things happen for a reason, which people will argue with me as to what that reason would be. Hey, do you always need to know the reason for things to happen? My answer is a big NO! You may not get the reason but you get the lesson of your actions.
Beauty and fashion are my comfort zones. I discovered my personal style while experimenting with some trends and incorporating them into my daily style. Beauty and skincare had been big for me too. Funny, I just discovered why I was heavily breaking out. It wasn’t not just the hormones, not just the caffeine but the stress was affecting my being so much, my skin had suffered. What stresses me out? The fact that I haven’t met my goals the past year. I pushed myself too much to pursue what I want to happen. Then I realized, things happen at the right time indeed. Now, my skin got a lot better. (Also, thanks to some skincare products.)
The past year, I have been traveling and I enjoyed it. That soul searching was what I just needed. I also found out what I really wanted to do and what I really wanted to happen in my life. I was just starting before yet I suddenly stopped which was a rash decision for me yet that was the biggest learning I have gained in 2016. Good thing, I decided to stand up again and pick myself up during the last 2 months of 2016. Hence, I ended the past year on a good note.
Goals for 2017:
Practice what I have learned but still keep learning
Keep dreaming and achieve them
Be contented and be happy
Welcome 2017 with an open mind and an open heart
Have faith and be always thankful
Now, I’m more confident to face 2017! I have still a lot to learn yet I’m ready for anything. I’m now more focused and determined to fulfill my life goals without anyone’s influence but still considering my loved ones. I know 2017 has a lot in store for me. I’m set to learn more lessons. A new year means a new beginning and a new chance to be a better person.
Also, for This Little Miss Blogs, I wouldn’t be posting as often as the past year but I promise better content about beauty, fashion, lifestyle and travel for you to enjoy! Quality over quantity, always!
2016 had been a roller coaster ride, now in 2017, it’s time to fly! Have a great New Year everyone!
