This year has been full of horrible public events: beloved celebrity deaths (David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Carrie Fisher etc.), Brexit, Donald Trump being voted as the next President of the USA.
People blame the year. I know I have tweeted a fair amount of “Fuck 2016″s.
Why is that?
I think it’s because we hope and believe that 2017 will be better.
The thing is we can’t change things we can’t control (celebrity lifespans).
If we look into our own individual lives, this year wasn’t so bad. I had many new adventures, got to see my best friend and her newborn baby, eat delicious food, and achieve a few of my personal goals of the year.
It’s up to us to make 2017 better. We can decide what things we can control and how we can achieve them.
