To those of you complaining about 2016 finally being over, and can’t wait for 2017, I have the feeling you said the same about years past. At the end of a “horrible” 2015, you wished for 2016 to be your year, because the previous year couldn’t get any worse…
I have some advice for you. Enjoy now. Not 2017, not just the weekend, and not only the summer. Start taking control over what you do with your time, and your valuable energies. Did bad things happen to you? Bad things happen to everyone. Take the time this year to ease your expectations of how life should be, and accept it as it is. Life doesn’t always turn out the way we want. It’s ok. Life is just life and does not obey your ego or commands.
Make 2017 a great year because you want to. Buy less junk, take more trips, learn what your priorities really are, and make the time to experience life instead of blaming it for your troubles and woes.
If you didn’t like 2016, then your reaction to the events that occurred during that time frame needs some adjusting. Life didn’t let you down in 2016, you did.
Let me be your tour guide to life. I'm the author of "Learning to be Human Again", and just like you, I'm still happily trying to figure this wonderful life out.
