The year of 2016 has been nothing less than an emotional rollercoaster, between the crazy events of the presidential election to the many deaths of our beloved celebrities. Where there is bad in our lives, in our year- there have been blessings both personal and world wide. This time of year it is important to reflect and remember the positive things that you were blessed with during this calendar year. Sure, this year wasn’t perfect but everyone has things within this year they could be happy about and some to be upset about- but that’s sort of how the world works. If everything went smoothly in life there would be no goals to be reached, no progress being made and it would be a world of consistency- which to be frank isn't a good thing. The troubles are what make life interesting, next year you have stories to tell and feelings of thanks in order to have gotten through those struggles. 2016 wasn’t all bad, we’ve all had some positivity.
Personally I have so many things to be thankful for, and believe it or not i know you have at least some things to be thankful for in your life because I believe life is filled with blessings- even though it doesn't always seem that way. For example for a lot of us college students this was the year where we had the opportunity to vote for the president of the united states, and have our voices heard, even though our options weren't incredible- we were blessed with the opportunity to put our votes in and support our morals and beliefs in the voting ballot. We got to see our favorite Titanic actor, Leonardo Dicaprio finally win an oscar. We were able to experience a push towards equality with the nationwide legalization of same sex marriage! We experienced a game that changed the entire meaning of being a gamer, a game where everyone was walking around and socializing- the trending app “Pokemon go”. Best of all, we saw an uber driver become a hero, saving a 16 year old girl involved in sex trafficking.
