I have had several talks with people about this year and the consensus is pretty much the same, 2016 was SH*TS! However, though it has been challenging and 2017 isn't looking so bright already knowing that Donald Trump will be sworn in a President, I really sat back and reflected on this year. Was 2016 that bad? Well some might say yes and I am not sure I can agree with that just yet. I have had some great moments this year as well. I challenge you to go through your phone and go to your photo gallery. Scroll all the way back to the January 2016 and then scroll down to December reliving some of your best times of this trash year. I went through mine and found some pretty amazing memories.

So Was 2016 Really That Bad?
2016 was SH*ITS like I mentioned earlier in this post but I am thankful for all the great moments and memories I made this year. When I think back on 2016, I will try and remember those versus me being fired or losing my car in the flood to name a few my sh*tty times. I look at it like this people, THANK GOD we are still ALIVE! A lot of people DID NOT and with a few days left in the year WILL NOT make it to see 2017. So if you make it to 2017, be thankful that you weathered the storm that was 2016. We have to be thankful for the things we can control and stop stressing on the things we can't. If you go into next year thinking it will be worse, it probably will. My motto for 2017 is #WantBetterDoBetter. I want better next year so I will work harder and do better!
I posted a tweet about 2016 and one of my followers responded...
I URGE YOU to go back and look at your great memories of 2016 and head into the new year those on your mind instead of the BS.
BE BLESSED AND
HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
