You’ve been here a few days now and I haven’t welcomed you in yet. I hope that you don’t hold that against me; 2016 really took it out of me and I needed a while to recover and I wanted to give you time to settle in.
You have the potential to be amazing, to be the one that people remember for the right reasons, but while I do believe you can be, that’s a lot of pressure to put on you. I’m sure that we can work together here. If you do your best, I’ll do mine. I’m optimistic even though I know there’s some pretty big changes up ahead.
Be gentle with me, but keep me determined, and I’ll make sure to remember you for the good times and the bad.
Welcome 2017, I’m glad that you’re here even if it’s taken this long for me to say it.
