I have seen too many posts about how awful it was in 2016. Really? You can’t find anything about 2016 to make it a good year? This makes me feel that a lot of my friends are pessimists.
I had so many great things that happened to me this year. That’s not to say that not a thing went wrong, because there were some awful things that happened too.
I GRADUATED COLLEGE
I made many new friends
I turned another year older
I was even more honest with people than last year
I started loving myself
I stood up for myself
I got a job
I quit my job (yes, I find this to be a good thing)
I get to spend yet another holiday season with my family
I survived another cold and flu.
I paid my first student loan payment.
I grew closer to my best friend.
My fish survived a year under my caretaking.
I didn’t crash my car.
I drank lots of wine.
I found out that I like stout beer.
Cows are still my favorite.
I kissed the boy I liked. (Take note the past tense of “like”)
I learned A LOT.
I made money.
How could you not have a list of good things that happened to you in a whole 365 days? This is only a short list, but it’s a list none the less.
