I’ve been seeing many people saying on social media that 2016 was the worst year and it has to end quickly. While I agree that it was not the easy year for the world, I consider myself extremely lucky because this was probably my best year so far. I know, I probably said the same thing at the end of 2015 but hey, isn’t it cool when you feel like every new year was the best one in your life?
In 2016 many of my dreams finally came true and left me wondering how did it even happen? Is this a real life?
