Best of 2016
"Always say 'yes' to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you." -Eckhart Tolle
Hello Friends! Happy New Year!!! While there are people who are a little cynical about the New Year and its promise of newness and change *cough*my husband*cough*... (To be fair, he believes in setting and crushing goals year-round, not just on one day of the year). I LOVE New Years. I love the idea of having an opportunity to start fresh, to set the bar high for yourself, and to attack your goals with a vengeance for 12 months.
Though I try my hardest to live each day in the present, it is also a beautiful thing to reflect on the year you are leaving behind. One of my girlfriends sent me a Snapchat yesterday (you're welcome to follow me @espywings!) encouraging me to share my best 16 pictures of the year. I assume the 16 comes from 2016. It was AMAZING looking back at all of the memories I have managed to create in one year.
I know people are branding 2016 a shitty year - chalk full of loss, unexpected change, and shitty election results. But I think it is important to look at the ebb and flow of life. Everything is not going to be perfect year-round. We have to have shitty moments to be able to appreciate the beautiful ones.
Below, I have shared my favorite pictures from 2016. What were yours?
I hope you had a beautiful Holiday season with people you cherish, and that you have a wonderful year ahead of you. ¡Adelante!
