I see posts and hear talk about how 2016 has been worse than other years and I just don’t buy it. The world has always been a scary place and celebrities have always passed away. The coming new year offers hope–a new beginning. I hope it is fantastic for us all. But what’s important is not what the coming year will do for us. It’s what we, you and me, will do to make this big scary, celebrity dying world a little better, a little softer, and little nicer. What if, while we’re making resolutions that, let’s face it, we’ll probably break, we make and easy one. What if we resolve to do one nice thing every day. Just one. You never know the ripple effect of that one thing. Even a smile can change someone’s whole outlook on their day.
