So we have stepped into 2017, so what? We’re one year closer to our graves, Stan Lee is still hale and hearty, Salman Khan is still single and we are still rushing head on towards global warming!
However, you have to agree that 2016 has been rather cruel to us by taking away gems like George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Leonard Cohen, Prince, Alan Rickman, David Bowie and so many others. It is a tragedy that while some sorry excuses of Earth’s scum are still breathing, these guys are gone.
Anyhoo, for those of us who managed to survive 2016 and are carrying on like wayward children of God, we still need something to look forward to. So we make resolutions; something that we will only stick to for a week, a fortnight or a month. After that we will revert to what we were. I am not writing this piece so that I can depress you. No Ma’am (or Sir if a ‘Sir’ is reading this)… that is not my intention! With every New Year and a new burst of energy, we resolve to do big things but with time we become like gas less balloons.
All I am trying to say is that we must try to be real and humane this year. We never know which year is our last, so we should make the most of it in being a good person. So let’s pull up our socks, un-bunch our panties and get on with life with a new lease of happiness and jubilation so that we can tackle any can of worms that is hurled at us this year.
Be Fabulous & Stay Blessed!!!
