So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight 2016

2016 has been a year, some of us see it as a good one, some of us see it as a horrible one, but for me, personally… it’s been one hell of a year. 
In the public eye, many dub this year as “the worst” probably in possible years because of the deaths of many legends such as Prince, Carrie Fisher, George Michael, Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire the list goes on but personally, it’s been a testing year of lessons learned, no loses just lessons learned. I’ve finally realized a lot about myself this year, and 2017 will be the year of self love. 2016 was my year of self discovery, but through it all I never really knew how to love myself for me. There were times where I tried to make myself feel loved by other parties by being something that I wasn’t and the only thing that does is make you worst inside. I learned that without loving myself first, you can’t have another person love you as well. 
2016 hasn’t been the worst year though. I graduated high school and became a college freshman, but my first semester has become a lesson learned for my years to come. 2016 also gave me a group of friends who I believe are set for life. 2016 has also been a test of faith in countless occasions, but like Matthew 19:26 says “…with man, this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible” and that statement is the truth. I thought I could do a lot without His guidance but I was WRONG, but He was still there like that dad who says try again with a smile on his face. 
In all I thank God for every year on Earth He gives me. I thank Him for waking me and my loved ones up, making sure we’re all good, but I really thank and love Him for how loving and gracious He is. 2016, you was one heck of a ride, but 2017 I’m ready for you!
