Saying Goodbye to 2016!


My first post of 2017! I can't believe it's the new year. I'm so excited!

Reflecting back on 2016 actually makes kinda me emotional. I went through a roller coaster in 2016! I had some extreme highs, and extreme lows. I'm not usually one to have my life as an open book (especially on the internet), but it always feels good to write it out and talk about it. 2016 pushed me in ways I wasn't ready for. Towards the end of 2016, I learned that people can certainly turn out to be who they seem not to be. As blunt and sad as it is, that's just how life goes. To be even more blunt, I was cheated on. I felt left in the dark for a long moment when I found out. Being cheated and lied to isn't easy! However, what I have gained from the whole situation has made me feel like it was all worth it. I mean, I'm at least happy that I know what I know now and am able to move on and grow from it. One BIG thing that I feel great about, that I didn't do so much before, is worrying less. There's this amazing quote that I love, that I remember more and more each day.. "if it won't matter 5 years from now, do not spend more than 5 minutes upset about it." This could not be more true and perfect. This is my new 5 by 5 rule! This reminder/quote has helped me so much already! 5 years from now, I won't even lose sleep over the person who cheated on me, so it's not worth more than my 5 minutes to dwell upon right now. 

Okay, enough of dwelling on the lows of 2016! Let's talk about the highs! Ahhh, there has been so many good times! First, I started my blog in 2016!!!! That's huge! I've had a lot of fun with it, and I've grown more than I ever thought I would. I've met so many great, supportive people! I think that's what I cherish most about my blog AND 2016. Overall, it was a great year, but I cannot wait to see what 2017 brings. It is off to an amazing start!!

Thank you for following me! Xoxo- Sabrina
