I consider a number of things in my life.
I have a shitty job, seriously dire financial straits, and a country that is continuing its determined downward spiral into splintered, bankrupt dotage.
On the other hand, I have a beautiful and smart, if somewhat eccentric daughter, a beautiful and smart, if somewhat eccentric wife (a pattern, I wonder?) and some of the most amazing friends imaginable spread across a few states.
I suppose on the balance, I am exceedingly thankful for what I have.
And as I turn to face this new year, I shall endeavor to keep that in mind and move forward.
Cheers and Happy New Year,
