10 Things I Am Thankful For In 2016

Lips: SeaNtree Matte Lipstick in Red Wine

And just like that, another year has ended. I don't even know where the year went and I didn't feel it go by. It felt like 2016 was a year that was just like all the other years before that. But I had so many things and experiences to be thankful for. I had a wonderful year nonetheless and I am hoping for a better and more memorable 2017. 

Here are the things I am most thankful for in 2016:
  1. Wqs given opportunities to learn more and develop my skills at work
  2. Met new friends
  3. Reconnected with old friends
  4. Became a volunteer at the Korean Cultural Center
  5. Got a new job at a new workplace
  6. Collaborations and sponsorship for the blog
  7. Went to new places (Guam and San Francisco)
  8. More readers and followers for the blog
  9. My boyfriend staying for more than 2 months this time (he works in a cruise ship and he only gets 2 months at most vacation here).
  10. Family bonding
There are so many things to be thankful for but those listed above are those that made a significant impact in my life. I may not have achieved much of the goals I set for the year but life really works in mysterious ways. They may not have become tangible but many other positive things happened in my life. I am just grateful for everything that I experienced this year and I hope 2017 will be even better.

I wish you all luck and success in all your endeavors this year! I hope yours will be a blast as I am sure mine will be.

  14. Definitely great things to be grateful for! I have to say I am grateful for a lot of the same things, like opportunities with my blog and family time. I had two weeks off at Christmas and got to spend it with my family! I hope you are having a fantastic New Year so far, and wishing you success in 2017!
