If you’re reading this, congratulations. We made it through 2016.
I don’t usually buy into pop-culture hype (okay, that’s a lie; I do), but the whole “2016 was a rough year” business is a bandwagon I can get on. True, a lot of cool stuff–EP, first paying spoken word gig, tons of travel–happened, but it was also a year life taught me a lot. And I’m sure you know what life’s preferred teaching method is.
(It’s pain, guys. Pain.)
Taken at the Stories Told EP launch. Poor kid has no idea what she’s in for.
So yes, 2016 is over, and I am (definitely) older and (hopefully) wiser for it. Maybe the biggest lesson I learned from the year-that-was was not to pin all my hopes on a change in calendar. There is no magic in January starts, in midnight beginnings.
There is only the next 365 days, and what I decide to do with them. Come at me, Life. I’m ready for another year of you.
