Man, 2016 continues to suck for damn near everyone…with 4 days left I'm just praying we make it through. There have been a few joyous occasions but even down to my dog Lola, 2016 sucked. I am sitting in the cancer centers waiting room lobby area, and I am looking around me and seeing that people are sick. LIFE sucks. Seriously. I mean how crappy is it to sit in a waiting room and looking around to see people half dead? It’s horrible. 2016 has been obnoxious. I personally have fought tooth and nail through and hopefully I come out of it as a warrior and winner. Though life has handed me many lemons, 2016 has given me some super awesome times as well.
2016 was a crappy year for almost everyone I know.We all have survived a year filled with death, misery and overall sadness.Whether it is the celebrity deaths, black lives lost or election results, we have all made it through, though barely.
This year I tried hard to focus on the good in this world. I told myself at the end of 2015 I was going to look at my life as a glass half full rather than half empty. It was hard. I managed through a lot of struggles and falls BUT I forced myself to remember everything I’ve already overcome and I focused on my resiliency. Like every other year I often leaned on my friends via Facebook or real life family and they got me through.
Life isn’t about how perfect you are, it’s about how great you are after you get knocked down. If you are a champion always and never experience loss, can you truly know what it feels like to be a champ? I say no. I say you need to experience shittiness in order to value wonderfulness.
