Remember back around New Years when we were all “2016 has been the worst EVER” and then remember a few weeks later when we were like “jk sorry I spoke this is new levels of awful,” well I’m the poster child for that regret. To be fair, things could be much worse than they are so #blessed and #grateful for sure, but jesus 2017- cut a girl some slack.
Here are the upsides:
Visitors! The first few months have been full of wonderful visitors, most recently… my momma! She came to visit and we had an absolute blast. A trip to the circus, days walking around farmers market and gardens, beach walks, and yummy meals were in no short supply.
Also, my Seattle trip was awesome! I had a flight voucher that was about the expire and made an impromptu trip out west and it was everything I’d hoped. I connected with Tom and Sue and got to spend a day in Bellingham aaaand then spent another day-ish in Seattle. Things were cloudy but felt great and after a certain amount of time in Florida it’s always good to remember that the wonders of the west still exist.
I’m back in Florida now though with the recent excitement winding down and things are back to limbo. For those that don’t know, I brought in the new year with crutches, a huge helping of anxiety, officially losing my job, and about $1,200 in car problems that decided now was a good time. This is just my 2017- as privileged, white, non-immigrant.
There is hope in sight though, which isn’t always the case when everything hits the fan, so that’s a pro. There is still potential for everything to work out okay, so I’m clinging to that as long as I can. The next month should be full of long-awaited answers and insight into the next year, so anyone’s extra finger-crossing would be much appreciated!
Happy March everyone and God bless the rest of 2017 (no seriously God, consider it please).
