Stop all that dark and senseless brooding Sing a different song.  
I have been thinking about this end of a decade thing. While I can't deny my joy at seeing the end of this decade, I want to acknowledge this milestone differently than I have done in years past.

A lot of bad shit happened. But, you know what, I'm glad it did. Because it has formed me into the person I am today (who I happened to think is pretty bad ass), because it has taught me to handle adversity with grace and acceptance and it has taught me that with perseverance anything can be overcome.

While it is true I am starting this new decade in a pretty bad spot, if I have learned anything from this past decade it is that this to shall pass. And while it is also true that the last ten years have been full of death and illness and sorrow, there has also been life and joy and happiness and to deny the former would negate the latter.

So, here it is. My new years manifesto. What is meant to happen shall happen. The bad should be accepted as it is only there to help me to greater appreciate the good. And at the end of the day remember that All Things Must Pass.

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day

So thank you to all the great friends I've made this decade, though not all of you are still around. Thanks to all the great times you've allowed me to be a part of, the joy and celebration as well as the sorrow and the loss. And, in the not to distant future, when everything is gray and you feel that no one could understand what you are going through, please just think of me and know that someone cares about you. And if that doesn't help, remember that there will always be this:

love, joy and rainbow sprinkles,
