Today is the last day of the year. 2016 is now behind us. What a year it has been!! Wow!! I couldn’t even begin to put into words how much went down for me in 2016. There was some incredible highs and some VERY low lows, but I am thankfully able to say that I am blessed and grateful to be here. I can also say that I am SUPER excited for 2017!!
Somebody posted one of those word search puzzles on Facebook the other day and it said the first three words you see would describe what 2017 was going to be like for you. While I may be a little nervous about the words I saw I am also excited!
CHANGES, COURAGE, FREEDOM
I wrote back in October that I could feel change on the horizon. At that time I thought that it was coming soon. Turns out it didn’t. Looking back I am SO grateful that change I thought was coming didn’t come just yet. It allowed me to share some time with those that I love which I may not have been able to had things worked out differently.
Seeing these three words could potentially foreshadow many things that are coming, but sadly at this point I cannot even begin to figure out what that might be. I will however look ahead to 2017 with courage and hope and pray that those changes and freedom will come as a result of that courage.
Having said that I also did one of those “name test” things that gave me a wise quote for 2017.
“Don’t start your day with broken pieces of yesterday. Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our life.”
That is what I am going to think about as 2017 comes. Leave the past behind and look forward to the future and make my dreams come true!
I pray the same for anyone who reads this. As Lily James said as Cinderella…
“Have courage and be kind.”
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
