This year has been something. We’re coming up on the end of 2021, and I’m feeling okay about letting it go.
If you’re a regular here at ye olde blog, you know about the demise of my 20+ year relationship and subsequent purchase of my house, which I absolutely love, despite (or maybe because of?) its quirks.
Since I was on here last, I lost my grandmother, who was really important. She was always my biggest cheerleader, even when no one else seemed to give a crap what I was doing. I loved her stories, her wit, and her art. I admired her in a lot of ways, and it’s so weird and sad that she’s just…gone. I am grateful that I had her in my life for so long.
And I’m grateful she isn’t suffering anymore. Going into hospice was her decision, and while I didn’t like it, I respected it.
I gained a cat that showed up in my backyard and now lives in my house. I’ll post his story on another day.
I got a new job, a better paying one but also a slightly higher stress one. As always, my goal is to eventually work for myself. I plan to work on that big-time this next year. It might be a bit easier now that I‘m not as bogged down by negative energy.
Everything I’ve been through has felt like a reset. Life will always change and shift, but the hardest stuff is done for the moment.
I am where I’m supposed to be. I have a brand spanking new life, and I’m ready to make the most of it.
Coming up within the next month or so: The Dark Dreams and Troubles Souls re-release in ebook and (maybe?) print book form and more flash fiction on the blog, because people seemed to like it.
That’s all I have for now. Don’t forget to follow the blog if you feel like you might want to wander back over.
