This is a first for me. Usually, when I write these posts, I do it at least a couple of days ahead of time, but today, I’m writing off the cuff.
Why? Not because I’m feeling spontaneous (trust me: I NEVER feel spontaneous).
It’s because I’ve been so blue and depressed the past several weeks that I couldn’t even bring myself to jot down a few words, which is not at all normal for me.
I blame 2018.
Not that it was a bad year, necessarily.
On the contrary. In a weird sort of way, I feel like I spent all of 2018 cringing, walking on eggshells, treading lightly while I waited for the other shoe to drop, after all the terrible things (like the death of both of my dogs AND my Volkswagen Beetle) that happened to me in the previous year.
When 2018 turned out to be a relatively uneventful (and, at times, even pleasant) year, it struck me (illogically, I know) as a little bit of a letdown. (I know, I know, only a crazy person like me could get depressed over having a decent year!)
But it’s 2019 now, a new year, a new start, and this time, I’m determine to MAKE things happen instead of sitting around waiting for them. Let’s do this.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year!
