I have to say, this year sucked ass. Two of the people in my life who professed to care about me the most lied to me and betrayed me; abandoning me and spreading very interesting lies behind my back. I’ve tried to be all zen and understanding about it but no. I can’t stand them and I can’t stand myself.
In my best moments I realize I am better off with these people out of my life because toxic relationships aren’t good for anyone. I have better friends who throughout all of this have been there for me. I pray every day to keep them and welcome new love into my life.
So, it is in that spirit that I give a resounding fuck you to 2012. Tonight I will try and focus on what I can do to make 2013 a better year for myself and for my daughter.
Buckle up, kids. Let’s do this shit.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how I am lucky for what I have. Even though I got rejected for that anthology, I am grateful to have plenty of other places to use it and the chance to edit it the way I want it.
I am grateful for my vacation and to be back with my family. I am grateful for my life and everything in it that makes me smile for even the barest second. Because life’s too short to be all frowny all the time. 🙂
On this Mommy Monday, I really must give a shout out to all the people who make it possible for this Mommy to get things done. Without them, the site wouldn’t get built, stories would never get written, and my imagination would never be able to run wild and free to cause chaos in it’s wake. Nobody is an island and without them, I’d be lost.
A huge thank you to all of you. You keep me as sane as necessary. 😉
