This year was cool. It didn't go to plan, but it went nonetheless. I did all the things I set out to do, but not in the way I thought I would. End result: the same. And I learned that there's more than one way to skin a cat. I got skills. Cheers to that.
Anyone with even a modicum of self-awareness knows that, in the long run, pouring sugar on our problems rarely solves anything. But I do believe that we can make shit work in the face of even the greatest struggle if we start to reframe what it is that we consider a "lemon".
