In the spirit of the year's end, here's an understatement: 2017 was a rough year. The fact that we've made it through together in one piece is remarkable, and we should all give ourselves a pat on the back. Go ahead, do it! But we should also remember that as a year comes to a close, it's important to spend some time reflecting on everything. That means the good things too.
And while this year's good might have been overshadowed a bit, it's still there, somewhere. And by unearthing your blessings, you'll unlock a path to even more blessings in the new year. Instead of allowing yourself to be held back by the stresses of 2017, make peace with them and look forward to calmer waters in the year ahead. Think about it — if we can make it through 2017, we can make it through anything. Fact: 2018 is going to be a better year for us all.
