I was listening to The Read recently — it's my favorite podcast — and I was struck by co-host Kid Fury’s observations about reaching the end of the year and feeling tired. I posted how I felt on Instagram: "Can't add one more plan tired. Hard to get excited about exciting things tired. Can't project, assume, or read minds tired. I'm letting myself be tired, be imperfect, be how I am. It is time to hibernate and make meaning of this year, understand the lessons." Five hundred people gave it a heart within a few hours.
