Ok, I freaking hate the whole NYresolution thing because it just becomes one more damn thing to beat myself up with come mid-January.

And this year is gonna be tough enough without adding that. I do have a suggestion of something to *try* to get through 2017.

Find something good when you're getting your information intake, and get strength from it.

The new regime wants us demoralized and weakened by a constant stream of bad and worse so we can't effectively resist. This goes beyond US borders because there's similar movements like the new regime going on everywhere.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

This is a v. good idea!! I definitely have been struggling under the demoralized "what's the point, nothing will help/nothing I can do will help," & yeah, that totally does play into the hands of the regime.

Absolutely true.

I've been on a total news fast to save my sanity. I've realized that speculation is not the same things as planning. Fretting isn't action.

Reading here, reading books from the 20th century and earlier, playing with beads and wire: these things are keeping me alive.

I do resolutions in the spring - that's when my energy is ready for such efforts.

I'm committing to writing my Representatives and Senators, both local and state, when i want to pull my hair out.
