So this year has been pretty intense. I’ve dealt with having a cancer diagnosis and the related treatment (currently cured – hooray!). I’ve dealt with James losing his job and supporting his mental health through that. I’ve dealt with a really intense and stressful trip to India. That’s just the last 6 months. I can barely tell you what happened in the first half of this year that is almost over, because cancer pretty much overshadowed everything – unsurprisingly. I do have vague memories that it wasn’t particularly good.
I’ve been looking forward to 1 January 2016 so I could kick 2015 in the arse as it left. It’s an arbitrary line, New Years Day, there is no reason why Friday is the first day of a new year other than that’s what someone decided many hundreds of years ago. It would make more sense that midwinter/midsummer – a day we have been able to predict with a high degree of accuracy for many hundreds of years – be the beginning/end of a year, but for some reason it’s not.
I’m not complaining, I just think it’s an interesting thing.
I am looking forward to 2016 being a much better year for myself and my family. I’m looking forward to finding a new job, for James to find a new job, for our finances to even out, for travel plans that I have to resolve, for all my friends and family to have a much less stressful year, for everyone’s health to improve, and for everyone to be safe.
May 2016 be excellent to all of us. May those of us who make new year resolutions keep them, may those of us who have hopes and dreams for 2016 achieve them, may everyone be awesome to each other.
