Another calendar year coming to an end. I don’t make any New Year’s Resolutions because that doesn’t work well with my anxiety issues. Instead, I continue to focus on my long term goals — which may have changed slightly along the way as all things in life change. This year, I published Story Time (a collection of short stories), two short stories, a novella and a novel on Amazon Kindle. This year, I spent more time working on social media for clients and myself. On the personal front, there was a terrible period where I thought I couldn’t go on anymore BUT I’m here. I survived. Anyone familiar with mental health issues will understand the struggle and then the triumph of coming out of it all in one piece. And finally, this year, I learned to let go of some toxic relationships that were with me for years.
Simultaneously, I learned how blessed I am to have kind, supportive friends. These are people who stood by me through my worst phases without making me say sorry for being anxious, depressed or a highly sensitive empath. I’m lucky.
The one-eyed beauty above is my Francie who came into my life this year. A precious angel ❤️
As we enter 2019, I’d like to thank you for following me. Thank you for reading my stories. And I wish you all good mental and physical health.
