Reflections on the year ahead

The presents are opened.

The celebrations have ended.

The guests are gone.

All that remains is the glow of the holiday lights, my husband, my dog, and the comfort of our home.

There are no resolutions. No goals. No plans. Just a simple desire to appreciate and enjoy what we have and our time together.

We don’t know what the future holds. All we know is that we’ve survived everything up until now, and we’re better off now, together, than we were before, in every sense of the word.

We have a home, we have friends, we have family (mostly chosen), we have an income, we have our health, and we have each other.

Today, we took a break from responsibility and just sat and enjoyed who we are, where we are, and what we are. We reflected on loved ones who are no longer here, loved ones who are, and every privilege, comfort, and convenience available to us.

Our lives aren’t perfect, but they’re pretty damn good.

Let’s see what the next year has in store for us!

Be well, all!

  1. May not only your wishes for 2023 materialise, S/b, but what I myself wish for you to come true too, though I imagine there might be considerable overlap – and for dear J. and dearest li’l H. as well. Most of all, great health to you and yours!
