This year y'all

I remember back at the end of last year when I had grand plans for 2016. I had no idea. Not only was it a bad year for art, music, and well pretty much the world,  it was also a very bad year for me. I tried going back into the workforce. Bad idea. I had some big ideas for my business that never came to fruition. Totally my own fault, but still not fun. I found out some things about people that made me sad. Honestly I want to just draw a veil over the whole year. I'm cranking through until New Years, and then I'm calling a full on do-over. 

So in the spirit of making things better I started something new. On instagram I started putting up a daily good word. Some of them are quotes about getting it done (like above), but some of them will be silly. The important part is that it's good. It's positive. Or it's fun. I'm done having bad in my world, and I'm working on the little ways I can make the world a better place. This is one little way I can be brighter. One of the ways I can work towards my goal of being a "bright, shiny light". That's how Jen Sincero describes Dolly Parton and I figure that's a pretty good life goal. You can peruse all the good words I'm putting together on Instagram.

So go on. You do you. Be your own version of a bright, shiny light. I hope your holidays are full of love and kindness. And I hope and pray that 2017 brings us all better things. More love. More light.
