I wish I had the cheat code to life. If I had 99 lives I would totally do everything "wrong" and see if I got different results because taking the safe route hasn't gotten me much.
I always look at the new year as a chance to start a new and forget all the bad stuff that happened the year before. When stuff goes down this early in the year, it makes it super hard to let the last year go.
The running tally of the bad stuff:
Denied Unemployment benefits
House broken in/ TV stolen
Lost the baby
Denied housing assistance
*Drain pouch installed!
I really look at the lay off as the snowball that made all this happen. Is that bad? I have not forgiven them yet.
Maybe I'll go back to bed for the year. Hopefully, I'll wake up in a better place.
To be fair, I have a great family, wonderful friends, and an amazing partner for life. But what good is all that when you constantly have things to worry about and no time or energy to enjoy the company?
Happy New year!
