Things have not been as easy as I thought they would be. Certainly a lot of ups & downs. Mainly downs because I tend to emphasize what needs to be worked on/improved on. This year has certainly been a kind of roller coaster for me. And although I am proud as well as satisfied with everything that was achieved, it certainly seems that there is a much longer path that will be more tedious and arduous as time progresses.

I’ve been hurt, let down, betrayed, and lied to, and I am still powering through to see to good in people. There is mostly some or other reason why people behave the way they behave, and we probably shouldn’t try to figure it out. It can land us in deep waters.

I haven’t seriously sat down by myself to understand and research paramedic schools. I need to do that, but at the same time, I feel like I need a break from everything that I’ve gone through. I’ve requested to take the entire January of 2023 off from work. What am I going to do? I do not know. Probably concentrate on my health.

I plan to run a Full trail marathon in the coming week. I haven’t necessarily trained enough for it. It is just as controlling your mind as it is to be in control of your body. I hope I push through it.
