HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!: It’s NYE which means it’s time to break out the silver shirt! 🎉 From law change 👩🏼‍⚖️ to snowfall ❄️, Join us on WJHL& ABC Tri-Cities for the news and weather you need to know, as we prepare to enter the new year TONIGHT! Also, it is a great time to take a second and chat about mental health. This shirt was one I received years ago from my good friend Kelly, before she took her own life in August of 2020, and now I try to wear it every NYE. I wear this as a reminder to myself; To remember those who are lost, those who have lost and those who feel like their fighting a losing battle. It’s okay to be hurting when it looks like everyone else is celebrating. It’s okay if 2021 didn’t feel like “your year” and neither does 2022. It’s okay to be sad, everyone feels sad so please don’t feel like you’re alone. You are loved. You are seen. The world would miss you if you were gone. If you’re struggling, please repeat these words over and over to yourself. Brain chemicals are a CRAZY thing. Don’t be hard on yourself for something you cannot control. There are always options. ❤️❤️❤️ “If it’s not good, it’s not the end.” - John Lennon
