2016: The year the Universe finally winked at me

This 2016, I start my annual closing of the year post with a quote from one of my all-time favorite movies:

"Life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan."
-Dean Kansky, Serendipity

2014 was all about taking risks.  2015 was about making sacrifices.  And 2016?  Well 2016 has been about reaping the fruits of those risks and sacrifices.

It wasn't all peachy at first.  The journey to your personal legend can be confusing, rough, and altogether frustrating.  It comes to a point where you actually wonder if the Universe is making fun of you.

This year made me realize once again that there is always, ALWAYS a bigger picture.  And the moment we stop being short-sighted, step back, and look at how everything that's been happening in our lives is leading us towards to where we're meant to be, we will also see that the Universe is actually winking at us.

I always say "Things happen for a reason".  Now let me ammend that to:  "Things happen for a reason at the right time."

2016 has seen me smile, frown, laugh, cry.  2017?  I bet it will see me do those again... And more.  But no matter what, I am ready to embrace everything the Universe throws at me knowing that eventually, she will reveal her sublime plan :)


Bring it on, 2017.  Taken during our trip to Singapore last June where the then-boyfriend proposed :)  
On that note, this is my last blog entry as a single woman ;)
