THIS YEAR HAS ALMOST GONE…
Not everyone made it through. 
Not everyone survived and not everyone is facing 2020 with a festive heart.
Some tables are set with one place missing.
And that hurts like hell.
But life goes on. We all must go on. What choice do we have?
And if we can take anything into the New Year, it should be this…
Life can be hard, it can feel like an uphill struggle sometimes – but if you are facing against the wind, it is even harder than it need be.
So turn your back and let the wind blow you along.
Go with the flow my friend and let life lead you where it wants to.
You see, things are as they should be, even if it doesn’t feel like that right now.
It will all work out in the end and you will look back and see the lessons learned and the strength you gained.
You will be okay.
You will.
Keep hope in your heart and find joy whenever you get the slightest chance.
It is the only way to survive this rollercoaster ride.
When it feels like everything is wrong and your world is crashing down around your ears, breathe in, breathe out and do it again.
And again.
And again.
Put your hand on your heart and feel the beating. 
That is life. You are alive.
You have a purpose.
To live.
And you will be okay.

THIS YEAR HAS ALMOST GONE... Not everyone made it through.
