Quotes That Sum Up Every Month in 2017

farewell best 2017 year quotes

2017....you so did not turn out the way I expected you would.

But then again, does any year?! 

It's this time of year that I read so many posts of woe, people wishing their last days of the year away for the hope that the ones that follow the ball drop are somehow magically better. Don't get me wrong, I get the weariness of things not going to plan. I feel like 2017 got me at every corner - surprising with both glorious and gnarly moments - and by about September, I stopped trying to guess what was next. 

But, I'm much more fond of the positive side of the coin - that being Christmas, New Year, summer and the prospect of new beginnings. Not that you have to wait for a new year to make a fresh start - you guys know by now I'm a big believer of deciding and doing. I just can't help but feel overwhelming gratitude for another lap around the sun and all the lessons and laughs that came with it. 

Here's a little quotable run-down of what the year was like for me....
What about you? Do you agree with any of these?
