December 2016 is upon us. A wise man once asked: Is this the end of the beginning, or the beginning of the end? The words of Ozzy Osbourne ring true as 2016, as we know it, is coming to a close. So much has happened over the last 11 months and it makes me wonder how to end this year with a bang. Unarmed Blacks are still being killed in record numbers all across the Unites States. The Presidential election was no doubt the talk of the year. We lost come of our most influential musicians of all time. Some of us lost friends/family and loved ones who were just answering the call to transition from this realm. Some of us fell short of reaching our goals this year. Whether to lose weight, exercise more, save money, stop smoking, or live debt free…this year was interesting to say the least.
But if you are reading this…there is still time. There is still hope.
If you are reading this, you are a living breathing organism existing in the present. As long as there is breath in your body, you have an opportunity to be the change you would like to see in the world. I’ve often said that 2016 was a year to realize that we need more love and compassion for each other. So what will 2017 offer?
