On December 31, we bid adieu to the old and say hello to the new, in welcoming 2016 with hope for a bright new year. While we toast our champagne glasses and kiss strangers at midnight, the joy and celebration erupts as we all look forward with high hopes for a fresh start. Some set resolutions, others are relieved to turn the page and leave it all behind. One thing we all have in common is a moment of reflection, in seeing how far we’ve come.
