I’ve had a pretty great start to this new year. I woke up and watched the sunrise. I participated in a small ceremony that allowed me to metaphorical release the old year while setting my intention for the new year. I made it to church on time after stopping for a Slurpee and heard people’s testimonials. I came home and then went out to eat with my younger brother, Jason, and his girlfriend, Bridget. We then went to Wal-Mart where I ran into Laura J, someone I used to know. We went to watch “Collateral Beauty” at Star John R. I came home, called my mom and now I’m getting ready for bed. A pretty great start to 2017.
