Oh January. You have been a month full of loss, hurt, and pain.
You’ve been hard.
Harder than I predicted. You’ve been hard on the world too.
2017 you did not start with a shiny new beginning. Instead, you followed closely in the footsteps of 2016. Not surprising since we put way too much pressure on you.
I won’t lie – part of me wishes for a do-over; rewind time and maybe get it better the second time around.
Maybe February 1st can serve as a do-over. It’s tomorrow after all. New month, new day, new 28 days to live. New prospect that maybe this whole month will be easier and lighter and freer.
Tonight January ends and tomorrow February begins.
May it be good.
