E.M.’s World – December 27,2021

I am always excited on Mondays to get to blogging, even though today I am running way behind. Mondays have several prompts that I love to participate in, and Share Your World from Melanie is one of those awesome prompts.

This week’s SYW is about 2021. Shall we begin my ramble? I think so!

SHARE YOUR WORLD QUESTIONS

At 12 a.m. on December 31st/Jan 1st, what will you be doing? (use your own time zone please)

I am on Pacific Time. At midnight on New Year’s Eve, I will be watching the ball drop on television while sipping on a margarita, spending time with my family, snacking on cheese and crackers, and wishing I had the man I wanted in front of me to kiss me into the new year.

Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve?

Margaritas, food, and the ball drop. My sister doesn’t really drink, but she joins me in celebration. The biggest tradition we have is that we do not go out after dark on NYE. There are too many crazies out, and we wish to live lol.

Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better?

It has got to be better. This year and last were terrible for me. I hope that I can find employment after we figure out how to handle my shoulder and neck, and I think that Covid will finally die down a little bit. I hope so anyway because I hate being scared to leave my house.

What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021?

I learned that my brain is an organ too, and that organ can malfunction just like your heart can. I always saw mental illness for me as a weakness, and I would say that I did not want to take a pill to be normal. Sometimes you have to take a pill to feel like a human. Never neglect your mental health, and reach out for help to professionals when you need to and before it’s too late.

  1. Thanks for Sharing Your World! It sounds like 2021 wasn’t great, but here we are faced with a whole new chance – 365 days to make into what we can! I’m glad you came to terms with your illnesses (both physical and mental health related), Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but I understand why people are hesitant to reveal such a thing to others. Stigma has been around that illness for centuries, at least now there are suitable remedies that don’t involve electric shock or being banished to an asylum. I hope you come to the resolution of the situation that suits you best! Blessings! Have a wonderful New Year! Your traditions sound fun and prudent. Margaritas (whether with alcohol or without) are the BEST! 😛 (hmm I may have to buy some lime juice and a couple of fresh limes and some mix and ice (no alcohol for me) and make myself some to welcome 2022 in. That sounds delicious! Thanks! 🙂

    1. Thanks Mel! I am happy to participate! I will have one with alcohol for you *giggles* I only drink about 4 times per year unless I am on vacations. Then I think you could put the count up to 6 lol. Have an amazing new year, and I appreciate you!
