2016 was a hard year. So many negatives and not your run of the mill negatives. Soul crushing negatives.
I have been taking some time away to reflect and regain my generally good nature and joyful spirit.
A quote by one of my favorite people in the world has sort of resonated with me during this time.
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world." ~Mister Fred Rogers
I am looking for the helpers. I am trying to be a helper. I hope you are all finding your helpers too.
I am returning to the world, good-natured and at least semi-joyful spirited.
