I never thought I’d say a year so high. When I was a young kid in the 80s, there’s no way I ever thought I’d see 2016. Not that I thought I wouldn’t make it there, but it seemed so incredibly far off that it was not in the realm of possibility. Well, welcome to the future.
Since I’m living in the future, I should really take more advantage of our technology and things like this blog. Hence we get to my New Year’s Resolution – blog more.
When my dad died a year and a half ago, a lot of things stopped for me, or at least slowed down. I couldn’t read a book for about six months after he died. It was the weirdest feeling, but I just couldn’t concentrate enough to do it. I also inched along when it came to other things, too, like exercise, hanging out with friends, writing, and this blog. Although, to be fair, I didn’t blog much before he died, but after he died it pretty much stopped completely. I stopped.
But I’m doing much better. This doesn’t mean I still don’t cry and don’t wallow from time to time, but my life is getting more back to some sort of normal and it’s time to start talking about it.
Welcome 2016. I hope to blog in you more.
