Bye Bye 2016 and Welcome 2017

It is now 7.51 pm Sydney time when I started this post, only couple hours left of this 2016 year. I was having dinner and suddenly it occurred to me I should do a last post for 2016 counting all the blessings we received in 2016. As much sad news we have seen in 2016, I am trying not to ponder over these failures, loss or missed opportunities.

So, here it is:

  • Being given another year of life to experience so much more this year
  • A generally healthy year for all the family
  • Mom’s visit was a highlight, the last time she came was almost 6 years ago
  • Brother’s wedding
  • New job
  • New friends/colleagues
  • Better pay
  • Moving to new suburb
  • Short course on online writing
  • Bali and Melbourne trip, hopefully we can do more in 2017 and new destinations!
  • Tried many new restaurants, new food ლ(´ڡ`ლ)
  • A bit better on blogging, definitely aim to be better next year ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ
  • A better and organised utilization of private health cover
  • Most of all, I am super thankful for hubby!❤️❤️❤️

So bye bye 2016 with all the happiness and sadness we have experienced through and all the lessons we learned…

And we wish you a very Happy New Year 2017, may it be an even happier, better, and prosperous year to you all…

Lastly, a beautiful (yet very true) quote from New Year’s Eve movie (2011):

Sam: “Sometimes it feels like there are so many things in this world we can’t control. Earthquakes, floods, reality shows. But it’s important to remember the things that we can. Like forgiveness, second chances, fresh starts. Because the one thing that turns the world from the longing place to a beautiful place is love. Love and any of its forms. Love gives us hope. Hope for the New Year. That’s what New Year’s Eve is to me. Hope and a great party!”  (IMDB)
