Same Thing.  Different Year. image

I was really hoping 2021 would be this bang up awesome year.  Sadly, it’s just been weird and angsty version two.  I can’t believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day.  When was the last time I even sent a newsletter?  LOL.  

I’ve been home from my day job teleworking for almost a full year now...but everything continues to be hard.  People don’t seem to communicate worth a damn anymore.  It feels like my world's on fire.  And frankly, I’m just tired.  Like not just weary, but down right bone exhausted most days.  I feel like my battery is always being drained.  I miss eating out.  I miss the movie theatre.  I miss that daily structure I used to have.   How about you?  Do you feel like this sometimes? If you do, you are not alone. I've spoken to several friends and they all just feel the weight of everything pressing on them now.  

Plus, to top it all off for me, I got some not so great health news.  #GettingOld  #PreventativeCare

Anyway, here’s to hoping we can all get out of the rut soon.  Maybe by summer things won’t feel so hard and all our "wins" will feel super great!
