January 2017 is fast approaching which means we’re just counting the days ’til 2016 ends. Today, I’ll be sharing with you all the highlights of my year. It’s a way for me to reminisce, document my achievements, and also (hopefully) inspire you all in case you’re in a situation wherein you’re having a dilemma in life.

I don’t know if it’s just me but this year went way too fast! Nonetheless; I’m grateful, proud, and I feel accomplished this year! So many blessings from Him and this was the year wherein I realized that better days are indeed always ahead. I can’t wait what’s in store for me this coming year. It’s already making my heart beat fast with excitement!

I wish you all a happier, blessed, and more bountiful 2017!
