2016: The Year That Was #FridayReflections #BlogChatter

The year 2016 has been more or less uneventful for me. Long drawn. Lazy even.

I had high expectations from it in the beginning, but then injured my shoulder early on, and got distracted with other stuff.

I've hardly blogged this past year. Only 22 posts in the last 365 days. (And that's when I hadn't even taken an official sabbatical from blogging!)


I just don't feel like writing anymore. I don't feel like recording bits from my life here. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

I say 'anymore', but maybe it's just a temporary phase. I sure hope so.


Otherwise, life has been good this last year.

Except for those few months when I was struggling with the physiotherapy, pain and sleep deprivation. But, as they say, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

I, for one, definitely DO feel stronger than I did at the start of 2016. More optimistic about life. More in control. More appreciative of what I have and where I am.


2016 has been a good year, even if it didn't seem so at times.

And 2017 is still waiting to be written.



I don't have any New Year Resolutions. Never make them. So I'll just go with the flow and think about each day when it comes.

What about you guys? How was 2016 for you? Do you have any plans/goals for 2017? Do share them below.

Wish you all a Very Happy New Year, friends!

Wishing you a very happy new year, Chicky. Hope 2017 is good for all. And keep writing and sharing your experiences. You're in a position where you can share so many positive stories of the tiny feet that walk into your store. That's so much positive energy. Stay happy and blessed.

An uneventful year can be a blessing in some ways. As you know I had a somewhat similar one. But I'm hoping 2017 will be more happening in a happy way. I wish the same for you too. Have a great new year Chicky.

Wish you a very happy 2017. I lost my writing mojo too in 2016. But let's hope we both find our writing inspiration in 2017.
