It's been a rough year. I don't remember a year where it felt like there was so much tension in the air, even among friends. I had to give up on facebook for months - I just couldn't stand the hating, the haranguing, the arguing, the spewing. Did I say hating?
Here's my challenge for 2017: Take off your shades. Whatever lens you're looking through that's causing you to see hatred, ugliness, dissent, meanness, disgust - Take it off. You have a choice: See beauty. See peace. See possibilities.
