I do not care for the holidays, but I love new beginnings, and I see New Years as one of those times. It’s never too late to start over and there is no specific time unless you personally set one, but sometimes aligning your mission with something bigger can cause a bigger results.
This year was hard. I realize my biggest success was surviving the year itself. As an ambitious individual, that is not the ideal accomplishment. We would much rather say we received the blah, blah or brought in blah, blah, but all I can really say at the moment is- I made it! That is enough for me, right now, in this moment. At first, I was a little upset, but then I looked back and I realized all I had endured from betrayals to accidental firings, to no checks, to a scamming advertisers circle (yes, such exists), to depression. Then I went back to the prior year and remembered how it felt to come here to Atlanta homeless and unemployed, and I knew those were even worse conditions.
Yet, that made me smile, because I fought for everything that I do still have, and I won. I’m wiser. I understand now that people only operate from the levels they know. Hurt people hurt others. I refuse to go into the new year with harsh feelings or negativity. One of my goals has always been to be a source of light. I look forward to starting anew in 2016 and using all the wisdom I’ve acquired through trial and error and disappointment after disappointment. Just know I aim to speak my truth and kick ass. What do you aim to do? How was 2015 for you? Until next time…
