New Year… Yikes.

As the final day of 2017 ticks by I find myself rather melancholic. It’s not been the most wonderful year of my life, with some really hard punches landed which have winded me,(but not enough to knock me out.) There have also been many wonderful days of laughter, love and achievement.

I like to think I’m an optimist but I always struggle at New Year. It’s not that I don’t think wonderful days lie ahead, but rather the thought of what changes it may bring terrify me.

Life is not something I take for granted, so tonight as I gather with friends I will keep it simple. I’ll toast the New Year and it’s many possibilities but in my heart I will make only one wish,

That all those I hold dear will once again clink glasses, send texts and messages, or chat on the phone this day next year.

And for you too my readers and friends, I wish you and your families, health and happiness in the year ahead.

    1. Sorry for such a late reply Michael. 2918 already challenging!
      Hope it’s a good year for you and yours and I look forward to seeing you online.

  1. Happy New Year, Tric! Plan for the worst, hope for the best and strong enough to handle whatever arrives – my motto to carry forward into each new year – and, um, yeah, I get smarmy and gushy over the whole holiday, even when my cynics soul says, “yeah, yeah, most folks who buy a gym membership in January won’t even be showing up come February…” – – but, pretty certain you’ll survive for another year – for that’s what I see in your warrior spirit – no matter how you currently see it…:)

    1. Sorry for the late reply but 2018 testing already!
      I love your motto and it’s exactly how I intend to approach this year.
      I hope to see you again to compare notes this time next year.

    1. Sorry for my very tardy response the new year hadn’t the greatest of starts here.
      I don’t think it would be hard for this year to be an improvement for you! Best wishes for us both. πŸ˜€
