Hoping that this is not too late, here:
You’re not saying goodbye to just a year. Nowadays it is symbolic because it comes along with the realization that it does not matter whether it is a good day or bad, it will eventually pass. What remains, however, is the moment that we have in hand. Cherish it. Live it. Love it. Don’t hold back what’s in your heart. Love more. Live more. Smile more.
Learn from the lessons that 2016 taught you. I wish 2017 brings all the joy you aspire for.
Create your destiny each day so that you don’t have to wait for any symbolic event to turn around your life.
Cheers to the spirit of New Everything,
Happy New Year
