As this post goes live it’s already December 20th, but even as I write it a bit earlier I am very much ready to kick 2016’s butt out the door.
Sayonara. Adieu. Arrivederci. Don’t come back…
Yes, 2016 has been a rough one for me and for a whole lot of people. My health was terrible through most of the year, but I found a better means of coping and a path to better answers. My mental health was not much better, that’s something I need to prioritize in the New Year. My creative half withered, I have to nurture it much more adequately from now on. New people entered my life, some good, some bad, and I’m still learning to handle that. Sorry for the vagueness there.
Even beyond myself 2016 was odd. So many good people died. We saw hate win more than once, though I hope 2017 sees a lot of fighting in that regard.
Unbalanced is probably the word I’d pick to describe this year all around, for myself and for the world.
I’m so ready to look forward, so tired of looking back on this awful year, that I’m at a loss as to what else to add to this post. I’m in full planning mode as I use the lessons and not-so-grand consequences of this year to spur myself into making 2017 better.
I’ll have a full 2016 goals recap available on Anxiety Ink soon. As well as a New Year’s post detailing the goals I want to accomplish. I’ve written up a post focusing on the ones most applicable to E.V. Writes.
I suppose I’ll end on a positive note. One of the best things to come out of this year has to be my recommitment and repurposing of this website, something I will continue to work on over the next twelve months. I’m still trying to figure out what I want here, but I’m enjoying the process.
Are you ready for 2017?
