I realize the combination of sick and PMS is not helping me feel the joy right now, but in what alternate universe did I honestly expect putting on my own 40th birthday party would be anything but a hassle? folks who said they'd make the trip now can't, family won't leave it alone, Athens people can't be bothered to respond... why am I doing this?
So, today I read a short post about a woman being approached by a man, her discomfort with him, and her strong response. Most of the comments were supportive of her standing up for herself but eventually there were negative comments. Some of the negative comments wanted more detail on the interaction to judge if her reaction was proper.
I didn't mention it much at the turn of the year, but 2014 was the best year that ever happened to me. Lots of heavy things resolved, two great holidays after an almost 13 year drought and some weight loss success. This year I only have one commandment to follow: do it all better.
