Dear 2017

Dear 2017,

I’m rooting for you. You saw how terrible 2016 was, please don’t do me dirty like 2016 did.

It’ll be hard, but I’m trying my best to keep my expectations low so that I’m not completely disappointed in what happens this year. I would say that nothing that happens this year can be as bad as 2016, but I really don’t want to challenge you like that. I want to claim 2017 as my year, but let’s be real… Each time I do that, I regret it.

You have a lot of potential, especially considering how low 2016 set the bar for you… But let’s not get into that. The past is the past, you are now.

I’m hoping and praying something amazing comes out of this year.

A new job that I enjoy?
More time with my family?
A new relationship?
More opportunities to learn and create more?

Something, anything will do. If not, it’s cool. I can root for 2018 if I need to, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Seriously, 2017, keep it together. Not just for me, but for those who have been negatively affected by the mess that was 2016.

I would like to think that I deserve an amazing 2017, but I know that there are so many other people who deserve even more. Please be good, for them. Give them hope. Remind them that there is still good in this world.

Alright, let’s do this, 2017. I’m ready.
