1. You are important. Even when you feel like you have nothing to say, even when you feel like all the words have already been said. you are important. Your thoughts are your own, and if you choose to share them, that's great. But if you choose silence sometimes, that's okay too. Some of us need the quiet to gather our own thoughts and understand our own feelings.
2.Be kind. This doesn't mean just being kind to others. It means be kind to yourself. Cut yourself slack when you need to. It is okay not to do it all. Actually, it is kind of impossible to do everything.
3. Live the life you dream of living. Today. Start today. It's the little things that make a difference. Take time to sip your tea and read those books you want to read. Give yourself the gift of boredom from time to time. Without boredom, there would be no creativity. Without boredom, there would be no art. Make 2017 your most creative year yet.
Um...goodbye 2016. Don't let the door hit you and all that....
Happy New Year!
