I cannot believe 2016 has come to an end (I swear I say this every year!) As the year comes to a close I find myself reflecting on the year that was. It’s no doubt that 2016 was nothing short of a year full of challenges and self discoveries for me. I faced many tests within my career and personal life and often at times felt like throwing in the towel and giving up on all of it.

I learned so much about myself this year, I learned how to forgive, how to push through the hard days, to never take my full life for granted and appreciate the people who are closest to me. I learned that nothing great happens without hard work and passion. I learned to celebrate the small victories and how possible it is to achieve anything I set out to do.

Despite a hard start to the year I felt myself grow and with it opportunities came. I found myself travelling the world and loving every part of the adventure. I made new friends and worked with incredible creative people. I had work offers coming in and I suddenly felt myself open my eyes to what I can fully offer to this world. I am so excited to let go of 2016 and welcome the new year with open arms. I know the best is yet to come!
