Hey there, 2017. Nice to see you.
It doesn’t matter how bad your previous twelve months have been, the beginning of a new year always brings with it a sense of optimism and hope. It’s a new beginning. A fresh start. A blank slate. (And all the other cliches.)
Even if you’re not making a single resolution this year, it feels good to turn a page and step into a new adventure. And that’s why we’re kicking off a new year of #MusicMonday with the Lone Bellow’s “Then Came the Morning.” Sure, it’s technically a song about moving on after the end of a nasty relationship. But it happens to apply quite nicely to the start of a brand new year, as well. If you’ve had a rough 2016, perhaps you can sing along: “Joy comes in the morning / You won’t see me crying.”
Happy New Year!
