After a week-long reprieve at home, my vehicle stalled, slowed to a crawl, and died as I was driving back downstate on the highway.
Right now I’m too tired to properly recount (a la my preferential novella format) the series of unfortunate events that took place tonight, but really and honestly: it all went as well as it probably could have. This was by far the least amount of headache I’ve dealt with as far as auto trouble goes (shoutout to the AAA Plus membership my mother continues to renew for me on an annual basis — between her care and their service, I’ve got my own personal Guardian Angel out there on the road).
Basically it boils down to the fact that even though my car didn’t make it home, I did. Beyond, BEYOND grateful that I am not stranded somewhere, in the rain, for hours on end, and even possibly into Monday morning.
Couldn’t have been happier to just sit on my bed for 5 minutes with Charlie as soon as I made it through my front door.
Those huge gratitudes aside, I’m wrapping up my 2015 blog entries, here and now. This is about as anti-climatic as a post could get, but I’m done. My goal/resolution/exercise of blogging daily has served its purpose & run its course.
The final lesson to impart is that it is very, very OK & acceptable to let go, when you know it to be the right course of action. There have been times (very recently even) that sitting to write was IMPERATIVE for my recovery program, but between last week’s cherished time with family and this week’s forthcoming return to the office plus deliberations about the future of personal transport PLUS the traditional New York New Year’s discotheque with crew…I’m done.
It’s been a ride. Thanks for reading along. I have much to reflect on in the coming days, and will return to you with some fresh insights when they surface (including a 2016 mission statement for this project).
See you next year. Stay grateful.
