This month has been an emotional rollercoaster for many, especially with the results of the Presidential election that has caused a real sense of fear and uncertainty to surface, particularly for those who are marginalized in our community. I know personally that I have been doing a lot of self-care these past couple of weeks, and have been very mindful of my emotional, mental, and physical health.
I decided to take a more light-hearted and reflective tone this week by listing what I am thankful for that has transpired this year. This year has been strangely wonderful in the midst of juggling grief and major life transitions. 2016 will go down as probably the best “adulting” year of my life; a time where everything looked as if they would fall apart, yet somehow pieced together perfectly.
