Well. I didn't expect there to be quite so much Radio Silence around here for so long. I had long lists, and a mind swimming with ideas. And then some things happened. I'm still suffering with this cold, or virus, or whatever it might be. Getting a little tired of all of the coughing now.
I also allowed myself to get hurt - again - and am a little ashamed of how much of this festive break I've spent allowing myself to feel sad. A conversation with a friend who was going through something much tougher did kind of give me a bit of a kick, but I still felt overcome with the sickening, stomach-churning sadness feeling. That horrid thing where you wake up in the morning and you've forgotten, and then the sad thing comes back like a cloud.
I've started thinking about my goals for the year. I'm a little behind, already as I'm sure most people have them all decided by now. But sometimes things take longer than you think. And I'm learning that that's okay. Sometimes, it's alright not to compare yourself to everyone else. There's no checklist which says you have to have certain things achieved by a certain time. And I'm finding my way back on track.
What's 2017 going to bring you?
