It's that time of year! I love goal setting and making plans, so the beginning of the year is always a fun time for me. There's so much possibility at the beginning of the year, and so much energy to go after your dreams.
This year feels a little different. I know I'm not the only one dreading the upcoming inauguration. I worry about what will happen to the rights and safety of so many marginalized communities, and I'm prepared to do my part to resist whatever horrific policies come our way.
While I don't think we should normalize what's happening in politics (because it is NOT normal, and it is NOT okay), I do think finding some normalcy--especially if you're part of a marginalized community--is a good thing. So to that end, I'm embracing my usual, optimistic, goal writing self today.
