It's hard to believe that 2016 is coming to an end. Personally, it's been an extremely pivotal year.
2016 was eye-opening. It was a wonderful year of learning. And of all the lessons, being more free was my biggest revelation.
This may be incredibly obvious to others. But, for me, letting loose and devoting time to frivolous hobbies seemed irresponsible and counter-productive.
But, those frivolous things are what make us different from rigid robots. Those silly things make us interesting, individualistic. But, more importantly, life is about our own unique experience, and it is so frighteningly fleeting.
Make it a point to spend some days like a child. Dance like a crazy person. Read a book under a great big tree. Watch "The Little Prince" on Netflix. Do whatever makes you feel free like a child. Enjoy the immense beauty and wonder that is all around us.
Celebrate this time of the year. Take a moment to reflect on all the beautiful memories of 2016 and all the dreams and hopes of 2017. My warmest wishes for everyone and their families. May happiness and health be with you all.
