2017 Wasn’t so bad afterall…

I feel like the entire year was just my Facebook yelling at me either about how Trump was trying to murder my family or people calling liberals names. It feels like the whole year was a big terrible battle of people yelling at each other.

I decided to take a look back at the cool stuff that happened and realized, it’s easy to have your brain steamrolled by the non-stop suckfest beaming into your eyeballs from our stupid smartphones… why do I keep going back for more?

I turned to my favorite social media, Instagram, to see what I chose to share online - it’s mostly my baby, but it dawned on me that we get to pick what we project, and while being socially active is important, the non-stop terror-spiral that some of my friends are caught in, could easily be turned around with contributions of the actions and activities that we create!

So here’s my year in Instagram and it 100% reminds me that 2017 did not suck.

#Spacebaby
This is by far the best moment of my entire life.
