Goodbye ’16 – Hello ’17

As we kick 2016 to the curb:

In 2017, we need more “16 going on 17/dancing in the gazebo” kind of moments.

If it starts raining, keep dancing.

Lift your voices because we need to be heard.

Make noise. And when you get the side-eye, get louder.

Don’t just lean forward, step forward.

Better still – step up.

Be out. Be out there. Be proud.

And if the grocery store runs out of black-eyed peas on New Years’ Eve, buy the damn red beans, throw the rest of the Christmas ham in, and move on. Flexibility is the key to success.

Let’s go, kids.
