for a whole lot of reasons 2016 has been challenges galore.  i’ve been more than ready to move on and find better times in 2017.  but this morning i woke up realizing that i’ve had the wrong attitude. i’m making myself more kranky than i need to be pushing off 16’s bad experiences.   this afternoon, i read a great post on In Her Shoes Blog.  they interviewed young and successful women about how they intend to bring in the new year.   

Gia Peppers, on-air talent & journalist for outlets such as BET.com, ESSENCE, E! and Hot 97 among others said, ” For me, 2016 was a year of making mistakes and “failing up.” A lot of the decisions I made did not turn out the way I expected them to — some were for the better and others weren’t. Still, in order to start 2017 on a productive note, I am going to make my mistakes (or lessons) work for me instead of against me. If you want to join, reflect on your biggest mistakes from 2017 and write down what you learned from them.”

after reading her words, i realized i gotta look at the silver lining of what i saw as a total mess.  new years day i will do just that.  i’m taking a quiet hour or two to journal the good that came out of those trying times in 2016.
