How does 2017 stack up against last year 2016? We thought 2016 was a bad year; we lost Gene Wilder, David Bowie, Prince and many more, there was an election plagued by innuendos and Russian influence, safety and cleanliness standards no longer applied for the summer games and these are just a few of the issues.
Unfortunately 2017 wasn’t much better. Fear has been the most prevalent emotion of 2017; look at the mass shootings at the Fort Lauderdale Airport, the hate crimes in Chicago, the Las Vegas mass shooting and here in New York, the mowing down of pedestrians. I personally am tired of listening to the news and scared for our Nation!
Positive Things That Happened in 2017
Celebrate the Lives Lost in 2017
Each of us celebrates our friends, family and loved one differently, but I want to share my thoughts on some folks we lost this year and how much they meant to me growing up.
Other notable names we lost in 2017 include: Terry Glenn (former NFL Wide Receiver), Liz Smith (Gossip Columnist), Monty Hall (Let’s Make a Deal), Jake LaMotta (former Middleweight Champion “Raging Bull”), Edith Windsor (who brought a Supreme Court case that struck down parts of a federal law that banned same-sex marriage), Jerry Lewis (Comedy Legend), Spencer Johnson (the author of my favorite book – “Who Moved My Cheese?”) and so many more.
Celebrate the Holidays
I have so much to be thankful for in my life. I have a wonderful husband, a house full of incredible little felines, remarkable business colleagues and clients (so many have become good friends) and amazing friends and family. During this holiday season, I wish all of you love, happiness and health. Remember during this season and always, hug and kiss the people you love and equally as important, tell them you love them! As we know tomorrow holds no promises.
