I posted this on Facebook.
I find it curious/strange to watch people talk about wanting to have 2016 finish and 2017 to start.
Side note: I never wish a day away – I don’t wish for Friday on Monday.. we get a limited quantity of days and I want EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!
Not just because a year is just a token that marks a series of earth rotations and our planet’s movement around the sun. 1/1/2017 marks nothing more than a single rotation more than 12/31/2016.
And 2016 did not take anyone from us. 2016 isn’t in the business of taking or giving. Cursing 2016 is like cursing a spoon for soup that was too hot! I’ve done it… but it’s sort of idiotic.
But most important, the biggest challenge we faced in 2016 was ourselves. We, individually, are always our biggest challenge. Guess who is going to be waiting for you when you wake up in 2017? Yep! Now that’s frightening!
At least you hope they are there waiting.
