The countdown to 2017 is finally over. Many of us are asking ourselves “where do we go from here?” We had our celebration and we stand victorious. I must admit the anticipation of 2017 was beginning to get to me. With all the talk of gloom and doom of who died in 2016, spies and the presidential election. It nearly took a temporary toll on my beliefs that all was well. We encountered this negativity on the tv, radio, and even in the comics.
I’m sure each of us have had to deal with the ‘hoopla’ of 2017 in our own way. And now it’s 2017, what now? Will we continue to fuss or can we put the demons to bed and work together? I find myself hoping that we all have a good laugh and look forward.
So I made a list of “things to think about” in 2017. And, what about the jobs that will be influenced by the year 2017? If I had could write a novel, I would be hard pressed to imagine what the next year will produce. Will we get closer to a cure for cancer or have clean water for everyone?
In my opinion, the miracles that have evolved the past 1000 years won’t be rivaled in the new year. We have made mistakes in the past centuries … but look at what we got right!
Our past cannot be changed, only learned from. As I look forward to the year 2017 I’m going to strive to close my mind to the negatives and all the things that ‘could’ happen. I will continue to love deeply and I will share my visions of HOPE for the coming year.
Will you join me? Here’s to a healthy, prosperous and happy New Year for everyone!
