So as the end of the year closes in, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the year gone by and be thankful for all the great things in our lives and really appreciate all the small things in life that make us happy. 2016 has brought lots of amazing adventures, accomplishments, successes but not without many challenges and obstacles. No journey is easy and it’s definitely true to say difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.
Speaking of destinations I’m so fortunate to have visited over 15 amazing destinations in 2016, getting to experience some of the most amazing places the world has to offer from Las Vegas, California and London to Vancouver, Austria and Chicago.
Some of the other things I am truly grateful for is the opportunity to take on new and exciting roles in a job that I absolutely love. I love to keep learning all things new.
Witnessing some historic events … like Ireland beating the All blacks was most definitely a highlight.
2016 also marked the completion of my new home, after a long and challenging journey we finally made the big move. Leaving my family home after 35 happy years was most definitely sad but moving into my new home with my life long partner and friend made everything right.
And most recently I am so delighted to have finally taken the leap to launch my own blog, Elaine’s Roves N’ Troves, which I can’t wait to keep working on in 2017.
Simple Things in Life to be Grateful For
So now it’s time to hit restart and do it all over again, look ahead and set new goals, turn more dreams into reality and efforts into great achievements, reach new destinations and enjoy the journey it takes me on.Here’s to everyone, wishing you a fantastic 2017, may it bring the magic of something great.
