The terror that struck my heart yesterday as I faced my worst fear on a computer screen got me thinking. Who are the people surrounding me? Do I trust them?

I am lucky again because our major political views align with each others’ fairly seamlessly. I feel secure that they would not betray me if push comes to shove.
So this is the last day of the year. How are you feeling? I’m a little trepidatious. I mean, I have never hated a number before. But 2020 is the worst number ever invented.

Who knows? This year could bring a lot of good things! So for this post, I’m going to focus on those possibilities instead of the scary ones. I’m not one for resolutions. I think they are a bad idea, generally. But I am one for setting S.M.A.R.T. goals and I am also a fan of self improvement. Check out my post that covers these special goals here because today we are going to talk about personal growth.
