My Last Post of 2016, I Think

setting-goals-for-2016

This has been a challenging year for many and a time of great loss for the global cultural community. Many of our icons and heroes have left us. Some of us have had personal situations that have tested us. We have seen political and national unrest. Life is about to get more interesting as we head into 2017.

No matter our situation we have comfort in holding close to the things that truly matter such as family, friendship and faith. In the coming year we have to come together to make a difference individually and collectively. Our world needs us now more than ever.

As bloggers we have an obligation to decrease the suck we see in the world. Our global outreach can make a true difference. No matter what we have a passion for we have to share it so others can be see the light.

My friends I wish you nothing but the best and as we look into the new year we will see great opportunities to do good things because the bad stuff will keep coming. Grace and peace everyone. Have a very Happy New Year.

Daily Prompt: Renewal

In a few hours the world will renew itself and ring in the new year of 2017. Every year is a new set of opportunities to do things to make our lives and the lives of others better. Perhaps it’s also a time to right some wrongs and do things better or different. Renewal comes in many forms and is very personal. I am hoping for global renewal despite the political forces that are at play. Cleansing, purging, clearing can be a renewal and restoration of space and place. Many need spiritual and emotional renewal in the coming year. No matter what we all need some renewal in mind, body and soul. Think of a new calendar as a clean slate that can give us all a second chance.
