It is December 31, 2015. It is tradional on this day to look back at the year and try to make sense of it.
2015, you made no sense.
With that in mind, I will attempt to explain my year.
I survived. My family is healthy. I have a job. I have a wonderful son, and a beautiful wife. Depression hasn’t beaten me. I got to meet my writing hero.
All of these things have been written about on this blog. I have been posting consistently for less than a year. My first post was in April, This is why I drink coffee.
The next week I decided that I needed to be honest with my friends about my depression, and mark Mental Health Awareness Month, so I wrote #IWishMyFriendsKnew.
June and July brought Unfinished Stories, a collaboration with a few friends to write stories together.
My stats page tell me that I have had over 1,900 views. That #IWishMyFriendsKnew is my most read post, that I have sent people to my friends pages through Unfinished Stories, and that I have had readers in 42 countries, and have posted a total of 39 times in 2015.
And I am just getting started. Goodbye 2015, hello 2016!
