2016, what a year it has been, an amazing year. Goals, dreams, or bucket list should not stay classified as that forever. Wanderlustyle makes it a mission to cross off a minimum of one major tick from our bucket list category. After all, bucket lists are there to be completed, at least in our opinion! This post is about our ‘firsts’ we did this year!
2016 was a HUGE year of self-development, change of mindsets and an even more disciplined routine. Looking back, it was an incredible year as we have reached and surpassed our set benchmarks and have outdone even ourselves. All this could not have been done if 1) we did not write these goals down and have the motivation/discipline to do it (it’s not always easy to keep the same energy which is why the payoff is all worth it) and 2) if the public, you guys, the reader, did not support us and read our posts. We owe a lot to the reader and the power of social media! Our final advice for you guys as this year comes to a close is this:
Write your goals, dreams, bucket lists or missions down for the next year and attempt to cross off as many as possible. It all starts with putting thought to paper. Physically write them down.
With that, we say thank you, to you the viewer, and all the lessons 2016 has taught us. Cheers 2016 and Aloha, 2017; We are ready!
