The year will end when the clocks strike midnight.

In this moment goes not only a year, but also an entire decade. 201X will fade and disappear, as everything always does.
Whatever happened in your Past, keep it in the Past.
It's alright. Just leave it where it belongs, okay ?
Continue to move forward, even if it's hard sometimes.
I wish you good, Friend.

An ending only allows for new beginnings.
Take advantage of it.

Remember, Friend.
The Present is right now.
The Future starts in just a second.

Safe travels, and Happy New Year !

Hello, Friend. That's lame.
Maybe I should give you a name.
But that's a slippery slope.
You're only in my head.
We have to remember that.
