First of all, I want to thank God for this year, for the good, bad and ugly. I want to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. This year hasn't been too good, but I know it could have been worse, so I have a lot to be thankful for. My Christmas wasn't so fun because I got a "bad" news on the 25th of December. The news isn't necessarily bad, but the timing is something I don't appreciate.

I lost my job in the beginning of the year. God has kept me since then, so I can't complain. I also had to be admitted for 9 days this year. That's the first time I remember ever sleeping at the hospital. God got me. I've been "broker" than I've ever been but I eat everyday. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for. I was able to show someone some kindness this Christmas and for that, I can say life hasn't been too bad.

For the remaining days, I hope to have all the fun I didn't have during the year. I'm doing to do something different this weekend, but I don't know what exactly. We started the year with some people, and they aren't with us now. My girl lost her dad this year, which was unfortunate. My condolences to anyone who has lost someone this year. More time comfort you and heal all wounds.

Let's all hope and work for a better year in 2019. Improve yourself daily, or you won't be able to manifest your new year resolution. Smile more, laugh more, worry less and hate less. Be easy going and enjoy 2019. You only die once, don't die with bitterness. Don't think too much. If you want to do something, do it. If you don't want, don't do it. Stop second guessing yourself. May the year end well for all of us.
