Merry Christmas, y’all.
The holidays bring with them anxiety, and this year has been no different. Uncertainty, the pounding of my heart, the weight that sits in my chest – a demon that ever has its claws in me.
When it comes, words are difficult to find, even harder to string together. And so, once more I fail in a task I set for myself. But because I am trying, and because I will keep trying, I forgive myself, because 2018 is another year, another chance to start again.
Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa. Happy New Year. Peace be with you. I wish you joy.
I’m going to try again in 2018. Practice kindness to one another.
