So here we are with the final Blogress Report of the year.
Last year at this time, when I was coming up with the idea for weekly Blogress Reports… well, for one thing, I didn’t imagine that I’d make the progress that I did. Honestly, I wasn’t thinking much about the future, as I try not to do that when I don’t have to. Life, in my experience, is unpredictable and ever-changing. For me, the best way to cope with the changes is to live in the moment and let the future try to sort itself out.
My best friend will be on his way here soon enough and will be staying until January 1st, so barring any last-minute bursts of inspiration, I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting much work done in the last few days of the year. I’m okay with that, though. The time I’ve taken off has been healthy for me.
I still can’t shake the feeling that next year is going to do a number on us all, but no matter what happens, I’m going to try to keep my new survival mantra in mind: “We got this.” It’s a simple way of reaffirming not just my own strength, but the strength of the people and things that keep me going. I may have to repeat it multiple times a day, but you know how it goes: tell yourself something often enough, and you’ll start to believe it.
So that’s it from me for 2016, everyone. Enjoy your holidays, and remember: “We got this.”
