2016 is coming to an end, which means there is a lot I can blog about. I could do the stereotypical resolutions post, a post about how my year has been, or a post about how thankful I am for this year. I don't really want to do any of those, so I am going to talk about how I've grown. I'm going to talk about how 2016 has changed me.

This year was full of so many firsts, good and bad. The first time I went on a spring break trip with friends and the first time flying first class. The first time I went to prom and graduated from high school. The first time I ran a 5k and the first time I went to college. I also got my first jeep and got in my first accident (3 days after getting it lol). I got my first gun and shot it for the first time. I met some of my baby cousins for the first time. The first time I had a serious allergic reaction and the first time I had to get allergy tested. The first time I turned 19, and the last. The first time, in a while, that I can say I am truly happy with myself. How many firsts did you have this year?

I have also grown so much in this past year. I have grown so much in my relationship with Jesus. I am reading daily devotionals and diving more into His word. I have been making more time to talk to God and I have been putting a lot more of my life in his hands.

I have also grown as a person. I have been taking more risks. I have been caring less about being embarrassing. I have been doing everything for myself and for God. I have been trying to please people less and to please God more. I am very happy with the growth I have experienced.

I hope you have all had a great year and I hope that you have a Happy New Year! Take some time to reflect and remember all the good that has happened this year. Think about how you have grown and be thankful for that! See you in 2017! (Also shoutout to my brother for taking these photos of me)

xoxo, Aubrey
