I raise a toast to a happy, successful and exciting 2017 to all of us.

Making it into the new year is a big feat, a big leap for all of us that made it thus far considering the number of people we personally know who did not make it.

That should give us enough reason to make every moment of everyday of 2017 count. At least I hope it will for me.

I am not one for new year resolutions because I do not keep them. But I have just two goals for 2017. No idea of how to go about them yet though. But they say that where there is a will, there is a way!

I do not want to bore us this early in the year. I just wanted to wish all of us the best of the year and encourage us to become better persons in 2017.
