Just a quick (I promise) reflection on the last 365 days.
2016 was pretty rough on everyone, but as I turn a year older, I recognize that although there are so many awful things going on around the world, it’s not lost on me that by all accounts, things aren’t all bad. It’s very easy to forget or take for granted the good things, when terrible shit is happening all around every single day, but remembering and taking time to acknowledge your blessings keeps the hope alive, for lack of a better phrase.
Life is far from perfect, but I am pretty damn happy about what and who I DO have in my life: supportive friends and family, the beginnings of a career of my choosing, a roof over my head, food in my belly and all of that other stuff that people wake up and forget that they’re really lucky to have. Basically, I’m just throwing some gratitude out there into the universe. It might just be the residual high from my incredible dinner last night, but I’m really looking forward to what 28 has in store for me.
Like I said, I’m going to keep this short. I’m done.
