“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
- Charles Dickens
This December I did something I’ve always meant to do, but never had. Nic and I sat down and started listing out all of the wonderful things that happened this year. What prompted it? My defiant “2017 WAS the best year!” in response to a comment heard in our home expressing a different sentiment. Always the eternal optimist, I set out to prove, in writing, why this was truly the best year.
As we started to fill our page and reflect on the bounty of good memories that came out of 2017, we both surprised ourselves in truly believing that this has indeed been the best year ever. The memories came quickly, and still are. Don’t let the news, friends, family, or the voice in your head tell you it was the pits. Hang this on your fridge and start filling it out this week, alone or with family, and watch 2017 become the year to beat.
