Happy New Year! It is officially 2017 and I am trying to wrap my head around how the Y2K scare was 17 years ago! I posed a question on my Facebook page asking where they were the night that we changed from 1999 to 2000. There were some funny answers, including some of my friends parents confessing that they filled bathtubs up with water! I think that was the first "viral" hype we encountered in the beginning of what would eventually become a social media and technology driven society.
Here we are 17 years later on a thriving social media and communication platform, everyone consumed by viral stories (Hello... Mariah Carey) and hundeds of new outlets to share our lives, favroite cat videos, keeping in touch with far away friends & family, and sharing breaking news!
It is fascinating to me how things have evolved.
With that said, at the beginning of each new year, we see so many New Years Resolutions and self made promises to have a fresh start! This year, I feel like so many people are focusing on bigger goals, getting back on track and not worrying about the "New Year, New You" facade.
I can personally attest to that mindset too!
I have HUGE goals that I want to achieve, but they aren't any different than what I had set out for myself in 2016. I just need to work harder to hit them.
However, the "New Year, New You" clean slate is just that... a clean slate. 2016 was a rough year for a lot of people and that is all now in the past. I think we are all excited to welcome 2017 and see what is has in store!
What are you excited to do in the New Year?
