What year is it anyway?

Today, I wrote the date as 2017. I think it is a sign that I am not ready for the new year.  I still have unfinished resolutions from 2018. Yet here I am in the final two weeks. wondering where last January went. I think there was summer, maybe?  

How do you keep the time from slipping away? I like the quote “Life is short. Do stuff that matters.”  I think I’ll make it my mantra for 2019.
