Dec. 26th, 2011

I’m antsy for the year to end, and I hate that feeling. I truly believe that life is something to be savored and appreciated, if not always enjoyed, and I always feel lousy whenever I want to rush through a day to get it over with, so to speak. I’ve had a lot of those days these past few months: days that you wish would hurry up and end so you could maybe get a fresh start on things the next morning, days that you rush through in the hopes that the next dawn will be brighter.

I hate making generalizations, but… 2011, you were brutal. I don’t know if there really is some magical celestial clock that resets all of our spirits on New Year’s morning, whatever calendar you follow, but I hope there is. Gregorian New Year, please be kind, and please bring a bright, beautiful dawn for all of us.

I have spent a good chunk of this year just getting through it, and then feeling like scum b/c I am surviving life instead of reveling in it. So yes, could stand for the general tone of things to shift. :)

And, I do think they will.

Exactly! Yes, exactly, Brooke!

I don't think I know a single person who speaks positively about this year-- it's been a year of loss and sorrow and stagnation pretty uniformly across the board. I am hoping 2012 will be brighter, though I am certain it will be full of change, and I am not the best at change.

By the by I owe you an email! Thank you!

Agreed. So much pain, so much grief, and so much of it without pause. I'd just like us all to be able to breathe a little. =/

Amen to that, sister!

It has been brutal. I seemed to have escaped one bad crappy thing after another. THe dark spots have far shadowed the few bright spots. And proof I'm not a total pessimist, I keep hoping that the turn of the Gregorian New Year that it just has to be better than the one we just completed. That will be my wish on my toast again this NYE at midnight.

I've been fighting pessimism all year. I don't remember ever being quite this... Eeyore'ish.

My year has been highly Plutonian with a side of Saturn, not because of actual astrological aspects, but the themes involved. But just as a Saturn Return can be said to be brutal, the end results are often welcomed with new wisdom and clarity. So, my 2011 was bittersweet. I would never do it over again, but it was what it was. I'm 100% ready for 2012!

I do have to say, though, that about 3-4 major things in my life came together in a wonderful way after several years of difficult patience. So there were bright spots in there!

Usually I'm very much down with Cunt-Punches of Enlightenment, but my groin could honestly use a little break.

Yes, everyone has their threshold. Sorry your 2010 was so shitty. :(

I agree. 2011 was brutal, and it felt like the kind of year where you just hang on and wait for it to be over, like a roller coaster ride you thought you could handle and then realized too late that it was going to be OH SHIT.

HA! Great analogy!

I don't think my year was as brutal as most (thankfully), but I'm hoping that the extended days starting from Yule will be a beacon for positive, happy things to flow back in to where the was only darkness before.

Love yer face. xxx
