2016 was a personally challenging year: it tried to kill me (by way of a nicked artery during surgery), it broke my heart a few times (mostly the high-maintenance men in my life, the women are very chill), it took me so far out of my comfort zone that I wasn’t sure I’d find my way, it gave me odd coping mechanisms and a dark sense of humour.
Yet it taught me that while the world moves in mysterious ways and is crueler than I’d ever thought, there’s a counter mysterious force and that people are more loving, generous and compassionate than I’d ever imagine. I’m thankful for everyone who has been in my life this year, the ones who amplified my spirit, the ones who made me laugh till I cried.
I’m still here and I’m looking forward to 2017. I’m going with the ebb and flow, and I know how to swim through rip tides.
Here is to a happy and healthy 2017, and what dreams/trips/hangovers/meals may come… :)
