Happy New Year everyone! I know I'm a little late but I have had the most overwhelmingly fast paced 18 days of January and I've finally been able to catch my breath a little so I wanted to reflect on 2016. Brace yourselves, this might be a long one.
As I was home for the holidays, I had a chance to sit down with my dad and he has this special ability to be able to put things into perspective for me. 2016 was my best year yet. I've grown so much and am very happy with the person that I've become. I've been able to recognize my flaws and actively put forth the effort to change for the better. My dad told me he's proud of me and that I should really like the person that I am, and I do. :)
Career-wise, 2016 took off in so many different directions for me, which only reminded me of university (which seems like 100 years ago) where I really do strive when I'm under pressure. With having to balance my career by day and my content creating by night, I feel as though I've done a pretty good job with both. It is officially my one year anniversary of the beginning of my stepping into the social media world and I wanted to thank you all for being apart of my journey and supporting me! You are all wonderful!
Personal life. If you didn't know, I got engaged this past year to my love of 4 years! Wedding planning has been slow moving because within this process, I've realized I really don't like planning weddings (my young self would be so upset to know this). But we are taking strides (even if they're small) to the alter, and I will make sure to keep everyone in the loop as I will be doing a blog post of some dresses I've tried on so far (including an Inbal Dror that Beyonce wore!!!!).
Overall I am in this wonderful space in my life and I wanted to pass it along, it was only a couple years ago when I finished school, had no idea what direction I wanted to go, moved to a strange city and was lost. Now being able to look at that and see where I am because of a lot of hard work and perseverance, I wish my current self could've told my old self that everything was going to be okay and fall into place as long as I kept pushing forward. So keep it pushing, 2017 for me will be a year where I continue to do what I've always been taught, to keep trying!
Wishing everyone a wonderful 2017!
ps. I HAD to start off my year with a blog post where I'm wearing my favourite Premonition Designs!
