As truly as I feel that 2016 was not the “Worst. Year. Ever.“, it’s still nice to say goodbye to it.
Sometimes we all need a fresh start, a blank slate. It doesn’t have to be on January 1, of course: we can start fresh any day we want.
Nevertheless, January 1 is a great time to say “yes” to new and “farewell” to the struggles of a year.
Tomorrow, 2016 will be history and 2017 will be a book you get to help write.
