Celebrate the Small Things: 11/11/16
This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So what am I celebrating this week?
Like many of you, I'm not really celebrating this week. I don't even live in America and I'm frightened about what the election results are going to mean for my friends and family who live there, and for the world as a whole. Because you can't deny the influence American politics has on the rest of the world.
And then to lose Leonard Cohen in the same week...
Seriously 2016? This year has been a bastard both personally and in a wider sense. I wish I could just go to sleep and wake up again in 2017. There are no promises a new year will be any better, but at least it feels like a fresh start.
So celebrating... Hmmm... It seems petty to talk about NaNo and word count and the fact I'm going to the Sing-Along Grease at my favorite cinema tonight. Or that I'm getting a new haircut and color tomorrow, but at the same time, it's these little everyday joys that make up a life, and I plan to make the most of them.
So I'm celebrating hitting 17.5K on my (very bad) NaNo book and that I get to dress up as Rizzo tonight and sing my heart out with 800 other people.
What are you choosing to celebrate this week?
