Happy New Year - the Year of Kindness

Hello Friends--
Today is a new year and a new start. 
 Some years, I've tried to have a "word" or  some type of so-called "theme" for the year. 
Remember the Year of Spanx! 
Ha -- that was a good one!
This year, I'm marking 2017 as the Year of Kindness! 

I think after 2016's hostile and volatile election season (on both sides),
it's really time for a little lot of kindness, isn't it! 
At least for me, it got to be too much to hear the constant bickering
on the news and read the word battles and attacks on FB. 
Won't you join me in being kind to others in your family, school,
neighborhood, city, Facebook, etc.
Even when we're feeling a little down or bummed or totally disappointed,
we're going to attempt a
a positive attitude.  I think hope we can achieve that by
saying Thank You more,
being grateful and appreciative, praying more,
being sensitive to others needs and issues and
also being kind to ourselves
It can be a rough world out there,
let's try a little kindness, shall we.
If you know me at all, you know
that odd-numbered years always make me a
little anxious!  Even so, let's make 2017 a good one!
Happy 2017!

LOVE every word- and yes, it's about time for more kindness, I'd say! :) I like how you concentrate on a word- neat idea!

Oh my word! The year of the spanx cracks me up! I agree that kindness is the perfect focus after that crazy election! I plan to do the same!
