We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — we’re ready for 2016 to end! Because this entire year has felt like the song from Hamilton (remix): 2016 doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes but we keep living anyway. We rise and we fall and we make our mistakes. There’s no denying it has been a hard year for most, but the important thing to remember is, it’s usually during our hardest, most desolate moments that we find the strength and the courage to go on. Sure, it’s been a tough year but one filled with many lessons; we’ve been disappointed, there were huge losses, and many of us remain fearful but in the midst of all that we stand together stronger than before.

We’re encouraged and empowered by those around us. We hold our loved ones a whole lot closer, and we’re awake and ready for change.

This year, Twitter has been a safe place for a lot of us. We’ve found friends and community and today, we’re hoping you’ll find some inspiration to keep fighting the good fight. We’ve got 16 lessons learned in 2016 according to Twitter! #2016TaughtMe

Doesn’t matter how rough it gets you’ll always have the support of your internet friends. And hey, we’ve got you too. We hope you’ll hold on to these valuable lessons — we know we will. Happy New Year, Gigglers!
