Goodbye 2016

I considered waiting until midnight to post this, but decided against it, seeing as that would technically be a day late.

Anyhow, who’s sad to see 2016 go? I’m not, particularly. 2016’s been a tough year for everyone, it seems. And not just on the surface, what with the numerous celebrity deaths, the grueling Presidential election, the Brexit, etc.

It seems everyone I talk to has had a pretty tough personal year, too, no thanks to the upsetting events above, but also apart from them.

So, I’m not sad to see 2016 go. People have some grueling predictions as we face 2017, but here’s my take: no year is ever perfect. To reference Rent, there are 525, 600 minutes in a year–but of those, only 525,000 minutes so dear. No year is going to be  paradise.

So, as we wave goodbye to 2016, let’s try to look forward to 2017. If it’s not the best for the world at large, let’s try to make it the best for us, personally. And as we do that, let’s remember that we couldn’t have gotten to 2017, our best year, without 2016.

I think that’s my goal. Instead of a resolution this New Year, just try to make the “Happy New Year!” At midnight more than a traditional shout, but also a promise.

So, Happy New Year, everyone. 🙂
