2016 got a lot of hate, partly because there were some mind blowing political shake ups across the world but also because quite a few beloved celebrities died.
Now some died of good old fashioned old age but many who were “taken too soon” had suffered greatly. In the midst of that suffering they turned to various substances that led to addictions that severely hurt them. While many posts hope they rest in peace, they had to fight to find peace in life.
Sort of a doom and gloom post so far but it leads to want I want for myself and you:
I don’t want to just rest in peace, I want to live in peace.
I want to greet each day with calm and to let go of the things I can’t control.
I want to make each person’s day a bit brighter because I was in it
As for those who bring me darkness?
I want to not accept their gifts of self doubt and anger.
In 2017, I choose peace.
Let’s be kind to each other and most importantly be kind to ourselves.
Here’s to a peaceful 2017
