Cheerio, Adios, We're Done

I am sure people may look at my year and think "not so good".

Went on 8 trips, conquered work in unimaginable ways, got the homestead pretty sorted, lost weight, gymmed, cycled, got my brains fucked out, had loads of dates, had even more dates I didn't care to go on, danced, laughed, snogged, cooked. Lived.

It wasn't my favourite year. But we're done with 2018.

But in the most essential ways, the ones that keep me breathing, living and loving, nothing changed. And for now, that is a splendid thing. A very splendid thing.

Depending on where you are and who you are, 2019 will find me bigger and badder. Or invisible.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way

There are precious few of you reading this, that can actually be "himself". A tiny minority who can be their real selves. You know you can be with me, because I've never been anything else. There is a value in being able to wake up as your real self, every day. To being not only accepted and loved, but welcomed.

Adios 2018 and bring it on 2019!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
