I started the year on the happiest note, ready to take on the world and life by storm, ready to accept what life would bring me. Or so I thought until I actually had to handle what life threw my way. I really wish it was lemons.

This year I’ve managed to disappoint myself on numerous occasions, to not be the best version of myself I promised myself to be, and I allowed myself to go through a major downward spiral of blame, guilt, anger and days of being unable to get out of bed.

As much as I hate to admit it, I let it get the best of me.

2016 was also a year I learnt that no matter how much you think you have your life planned out, things change, people change and there’s always three sides to every story. 

I’m thankful for the beautiful people I have around me, my Geng Unicorn who’ve always without a doubt have my back and love me unconditionally through my flaws, my fam bam and especially my niece who still refuses to say Chitti even though she can.

Here’s what happens when you hit rock bottom, you can only pick yourself up and work on being the best version of you that you want to be. 2017, I’m ready to take you on; fall in love with life, try new things, find a sense of purpose and find pieces of myself.

Sending love and light to everyone for the year to come.
