With the end of 2016, there are many mixed reviews about how the whole year played out. Nevertheless, with the beginning of 2017, people are filled with hope, drive and happiness. There are a few things we all can do to make this year much better than 2016.
Firstly, we should all cooperate with each other. With the past U.S. election behind us, our democracy has made a decision. There’s no point in fighting it now. Unlike the Republicans that sat in the U.S. government during Obama’s tenure, we, as Americans, should unite and see what happens. The United States is a nation built off an experiment. If history has shown us anything, it’s that some of the most absurd things in life can be the best things that can happen in life.
Secondly, maybe it’s time to make a New Year’s resolution that we just know won’t happen. Regardless of how much we try, New Year’s resolutions are usually not very successfully endeavored after. Thus, it might be time to just strive for something impossible. It is definitely possible that something close to the unimaginable can be attained.
Thirdly, this may be a time in which we create memories with those we are most close with. With the passing of so many great people this past year, we should embrace each and every day, and live life to the fullest with those closest to us. Rather than thinking about tomorrow, maybe we should all begin to just worry about today. The sun rises every day, so make the most of every day that we have to be great.
It's pretty clear. If we all want to make 2017 great, we have to make ourselves great. Rather than dwindle in the past, worry about the future, and hold contempt in our hearts, let’s be happy each and every day and make the most of whatever we get in that day. Rather than living in fear, worrying about the future, and perpetuating deep hatred, let’s coexist together and make the best of each day to make the world great.
Life provides each individual with a plethora of lemons every day. Rather than waste time thinking about the lemons, or worrying about future lemons, we should make some lemonade out of the ones we have. Perhaps we may not have those same lemons again, and, perhaps, we may regret it forever. Let’s make 2017 a year to remember!
