Hold on to your hats! 2016 was a bruiser, and 2017 looks to be even more intense. Brexit. Trump. The horror of all of the wars and the refugee crisis. I don’t feel there is much to celebrate, but as always, life can be bright even in the shadows and we need to focus on that. We need to try and maintain hope for a better future while not losing sight of everything around us, in an effort to make it all better for everyone, not just ourselves. I know you know that, but I need to keep reminding myself.
