2016 reflections; 2017 forward looking

Goodbye 2016. It has been terrible in terms of despairing world events, beloved celebrity deaths, and the increase of hatred in the world. However, personally, I feel I have made a small step in to accomplishing something that could be big. In 2015, I start this blog. Although I didn't write much in it (hopefully might change this year!), I started chipping at this goal: showcase my talents.  2016 was the mark of actually creating a youtube channel that I dreamed about for a few years now. I was too scared to put myself out there. I finally feel more comfortable in my own creative voice. Even though I don't post a lot, I want to make sure I am putting out high quality material! Hopefully in 2017, I'm gonna produce more video!

The biggest lesson I've learned in 2016 was one door closes, another one opens. So many times I get upset because I feel like there's a big opportunity coming my way, but it all falls a bit short in the end. Then I get sad about it. That is something I need to change. Just because I didn't get it, doesn't mean something awesome might not happen in my future. It's just a challenging road block, but I'll get through it. All this time I feel like the universe is against me, but I forget that I am fortunate in so many other ways. I need to remind myself that. Where there is light, there is also darkness.  2017 is where I'm going to practice this concept. Make the most of what you have. And it's ok if you keep failing. Keep chipping at it!

What I want to achieve in 2017: I want to add more blog posts about random topics possibly!
I want to expand it into fashion instead of just crafts and focus what it's important to me: using all the stuff you own and sharing my knowledge with the world. I need to stop doubting myself as well. So much fear comes from doubting myself. I am sold that I have a voice and I want to share it with the world. <3

Cheers to a new year, and hopefully an improved me!
