It is that time of the year when you start thinking about all of those important serious questions, where are you, what happened for the last 12 months, what did you achieve and why did you fail…. For me every year in December it is time to check up on myself.
Last year I wrote a list of things I wanted to do/achieve in 2016 so it was kind of a reminder through last 12 months. Someone told me it is much more easy to get something done if it is written, so I do this kind of a wish-list or to-do-lists for an year, a month even for every day. And definitely there is some magic about it! 🙂 .
To be honest not all of my 2016 wishes came true and I didn’t achieve everything I wanted to.. but I believe everything happens for a reason and sometimes not getting what you want may be a bigger blessing.
Now going back through my last 12 months I am happy. I travelled a lot, I visited places where I have been before and I saw it in completely different way. I went to places where I dreamed to go, I was on a solo-trip which before 1 year was a completely crazy idea and I have never ever even considering doing it.
I met so many new people and some of them became my close friends. Now I know the distance is not a problem when the friendship is real. I know also that you may meet someone and he can understand you better and be more supportive than people you know from 10 years. I am sure that everyone who comes in our lives can teach us something.
I learnt a lot of new things about myself, about other people, about places, about life. I prioritised some things instead of others, I learnt to focus on more important things for me, and to do what I feel is right for me, no matter what others think.
I learnt to let go on things, people and even desires. And how to don’t give up on things, people and dreams if they make me happy. I started my blog and I am so happy about it. I clearly understand that it need a lot of work but I am ready to keep going! I provoke myself in many ways and even surprised myself a lot. I am very grateful for this amazing time and I feel positive about 2017!
So I am completely ready! Are you?
P.S: Share with me your achievements and happy moments of 2016!
