I write this, with the happiest of smiles, as I say goodbye to the dreadful year that was 2016, and hello to optimism in 2017.
To 2016: You rained down frustration, confusion, pain, and a kind of heartache that lingered for longer than I thought possible. But you also showed me determination, and where to look for strength when I needed it.
To 2017: I look forward to you with the greatest optimism. I will, in my usual fashion, go full speed ahead with my resolutions, and I cannot express how grateful I am for a fresh start.
May this year bring you nothing but laughter, joy, and the kind of moments you wish you could hold onto forever.
Happy New Year,
