This is my last post for the year. I would like to have some sort of insightful thoughts to share with you all to help make sense of this past year. However, such profundity is beyond me. 2016 was a real garbage fire of a year. I won’t pour gasoline on the flames and list all the terrible losses the world has suffered but we all know them intimately.
So where do we go from here? Damned if I know. We are off the edge of the map. All we can do is be as compassionate and courageous as we can in the face of adversity. Easier said than done, of course, and the urge to lash out and let rage dominate us will follow us like shadows. Don’t let anger dictate our actions but rather, let it fuel us as we fight for those things we hold most dear.
The take away is as much as we want to see the end of this year; we don’t know what is next. It won’t be all one thing, so it’s important to remember all the small triumphs that can be overlooked. It will help you keep going.
That’s the sum of my wisdom, such as it is, on the subject.
Okay 2017, whatcha got?
