As I start to write this post, it is 1:00 in the afternoon on the East Coast. In 11 hours, 2018 will be no more.
My 2018 has been, well, an interesting one, to say the least. On the career front, my day job (thank G-d) has been steady, and my writing has improved in ways that I couldn’t have imagined on December 31st, 2017.
As I get older, I find that life is not so simple, nor do things happen when we wish them to happen. What want in life, we need to work for. Sometimes when faced with a dilemma, the options to resolve the dilemma are not black and white.
But in spite of the hardships I have experienced, I have many things to be grateful for. I have loving family, supportive friends, a solid day job with a steady income, my health, a roof over my head that is my own and a goal of one day earning my living via my pen.
Wherever you are in the world and whatever your plans are for New Years Eve, have a safe and wonderful evening.
Goodbye 2018, hello 2019. May we all continue to grow and become the people we want to be in 2019.
