Well, what I should be saying is “Thank flippin’ goodness it’s August already.” This has been the hands down the toughest year of my life. When you consider that I’ve been divorced twice and all of the financial and emotional fall out I had to deal with from both of those, you know it has to be one hell of a tough year for me to say something.
However, I keep trying to stay positive. It has to get better at some point, right?
I’ll quickly add that it hasn’t been one driving force. If it was one thing, I could focus on doing what I need to do to improve the situation. This has been the year of way too much… some of which I had a direct impact on the outcome and some of which was a force of nature and completely out of my control.
