Behold! My mantra for 2012!
Why not, right?
Life has pretty much been crap since January 2009 – that’s when it started. And it hasn’t finished. But, dammit, I’m still here!
Don’t get me wrong…there have been some good things since then as well. Nothing stellar. Nothing spectacular. But there were some good things. Overall, however, stuff has just really been kinda sucky since then. The sucky-ness will continue for a while. Probably for quite a while.
But what doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger.
I have to believe that…for me, for my mom, for the rest of my family, for my coworkers, for my friends. More than believe it, though, I have to live it. “God helps those who help themselves.” Well, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to help myself. I’m going to fight for myself. I’m going to fight for my mother, I’m going to fight for my family and friends and coworkers. And I’m going to be stronger.
I mean it, dammit!
