It’s hard to believe that it’s December 31st… this year has flown by! I must admit 2016 has been a year of ups and downs…so many great things happened. So many great travels…Family weddings combined with a trip to Lake Louise, Banff and Canmore with my mum. Two weeks in Winnipeg visiting old friends. 2016 also had a lot of really great long weekend road trip visits: visiting cousins in Montreal for a weekend! Going to Colorado and finally seeing first hand the beauty of that place. Visiting my friend in Trenton a few times!!! Weekend trips to London to visit friends… so many memories and lots of fun and adventures.
I’m not going to lie and tell you the whole year was perfect…because it wasn’t. Part of me can’t wait to kick 2016 out the door and welcome 2017. I think the thing I learned this year is that you sometimes can’t control circumstances or things that happen…but the one thing you can control is your reaction to them. You can let that one ‘bad’ moment/circumstance/thing cloud the rest of that day…and then it might turn into a week and even a month…and before you know it you’ve had a bad year!
So as hard as it is sometimes the best thing is to let it go…and try to look for the positive… because every year has it’s ups and downs. It’s the valley moments in life that make the mountain top view so much more memorable.
Counting my blessings and wishing you more. Hope you enjoy the New Year in store. Have a joyous New Year!
