It was a very frustrating year. I don’t think many people have such fond memories of 2017, in general. Politics aside, it was just a year filled with unbridled negativity, no matter where you looked.
But I don’t have to recap everything that happened this year for you. Instead, why don’t we look to the future?
I think we all had such stress and fear going into 2017 that it became a self-fulfilling prophecy fueled by our worst, darkest pits of our own negativity. I don’t want to say that it surely can’t get any worse than 2017 (mostly because that’s folly to try to guess the future), but this past year was pretty negative from the get-go.
So, I’m going to issue a challenge to all of you, dear NDs:
Let’s make 2018 a much more positive year. Let’s fuel this new year with the best we have to offer ourselves and each other. We can do so much better than we did this past year.
2018 is a clean slate; let’s see what we can do with it.
In keeping with my one of my promises from the video, how about we ring in the new year with a poll?
