As Kylie predicted, 2016 was certainly the year of realising stuff. Realising that the celebrities we love will leave us, that the British population wanted to leave the EU (well half of those that actually voted anyway), that money and blatant racism really does get you anything you want, and that the death of a gorilla could unite a world in a way never seen before.
I am optimistic in my predictions, that 2017 will be the year of kindness.
Kindness towards each other, kindness towards ourselves and kindness as a legacy to be proud of.
2016 was a terrible year for many, in many different ways. The only thing that will ease the pain of all, is to be a little kinder to one another, and soften the blows that life throws at us.
We need to be kinder to each other, instead of adding to each others difficult hand.
We need to be kinder to ourselves, and not hold ourselves to strict expectations that stifle us, when we deviate from the path.
We need to be kind.
