A Year In Review: 2016

I hoped for 2016 to be a year of chasing after light. A year to fight for love, and overcome fear and self-doubt. I hoped that 2016 would be the year I’d focus on enjoying the little things. I hoped to fill my calendar with adventures. I’m grateful that last year was in fact, filled with all of these things. I also became aware that the more I discover the joy and the sorrow I have in my heart, and allow myself to feel it deeply… the stronger my art becomes. So many moments.. Precious, beautiful moments. Moments to cherish. 2016 was a year for me to embrace, and a year that launched me into a wonderful year ahead.

My dreams for 2017 seem simple, but hold a lot of depth in my heart. I hope that 2017 will be a year to live adventurously, and a year to discover. A year to document love and selflessness. Self-doubt and fear still seep into my soul, so I hope for less of that in the year ahead. I hope that 2017 will be a year to breathe. A year to feel deeply and let my heart speak loudly. Will you join me?

A recap of 2016. Here’s to what this next year will bring.
