I couldn’t help but laugh at the first couple months of 2017. When reflecting on 2016, and looking forward to a clean, fresh year, I said (several times), “The next year is going to be so quiet, relaxed and fun.” While it has been, and will hopefully be, fun I would not use quiet nor relaxed to describe the beginning of this year.
Last night, I sat in a room with some of my closest friends, bringing in the New Year with laughter. As we sat and read the texts, tweets and FB posts that appeared on the screen, it continued to be people wishing for world peace, health and wealth, and to break bad habits. These are all great things, but what are these people doing to actually get there, to encourage world peace or to find wealth?
