I really wanted to start 2017 on a positive note and I believe my article for The Odyssey reflects that.
As you know, I made resolutions for this year and I choose to believe that 2017 is going to be so much better than 2016. Some people believe that 2017 is going to be the same as 2016 and think resolutions are a waste of time. And that’s fine if that’s what you believe. I just don’t want to hear about it. Just because you choose to have a negative viewpoint, doesn’t mean you’re going to stomp out my hope.
You can read an excerpt from the article below and read the full things here.
Lately on social media, there has been a large outcry against 2017. People are saying that nothing is going to really change in 2017. That time is an illusion. That December 31st, 2016 and January 1st, 2017 are more similar than different. And of course, they are right.
But who cares? We all know that 2016 has been the worst. If it makes someone feel better to have high hopes for 2017, why shouldn’t they? Why can’t they feel like they could start fresh on January 1st? We, as a universe, have exhausted ourselves when it comes to 2016.
