Goodbye 2016 … Hello To A New Year

As I re-read my New Year’s post, “2015 The Year Not In Review,” I began to remember that I’d opted not look back upon a year that had basically left me questioning my sanity and the sanity of those around me. Taking a look back over 2016, I could only laugh. Understand that I had felt so inundated with the insanity of behaviors from my fellow global citizens in 2015 and couldn’t imagine that people could behave any worse. You see … funny right?

Yes, 2016 has been jolting on so many levels. Personally there have been more than a few struggles, and as a global citizen I have witnessed the vilest behavior courtesy of my fellow “Earthlings”. Or perhaps people just simply were showing their true selves. I do not wish to trivialize the millions of people who want to “burn” 2016 from the record books, however I will share with readers that 2016 is a far cry from the worst year that I’ve experienced. And I will share that no one knows what they’re capable of surviving until the sh*t storm lands in their part of the world.

If anything, 2016 has reignited the social justice passions that I was raised with and I choose to run with that. We all have a choice. We can choose to bemoan a year that absolutely shook us, roll over and play dead or we can choose to dust ourselves off and do what we were always going to have to do … continue to carry on. Furthermore, we can carry on each day opting to feel hopeful and choosing to look at all of things that inspire us. Don’t lose hope.

From our tribe to yours … we send Peace, Love, Hope and Joy for 2017
