What can I say?
This year has been an amazing and completely crazy ride. It went by way too quickly! There were some moments of doubt but I am happy to say that there were many more triumphs!
Sometimes life can be a bitch. You can look back on past failures and become stuck in a rut out of fear and negativity. Or you can look at those as learning experiences, trial runs, warm ups to the successes that will happen and you keep moving forward. You start to learn what works and doesn't work and you change your plan of attack according to the outcome that you want. You pick the battles that are worth fighting for and cast the negative and unimportant crap aside. As cliche' as it may sound, attitude really is everything.
I'm still me, but I'm definitely a different me from the person I was this time last year. I'm stronger, more creative, confident and inspired than ever before. I am also working harder than ever but am starting to enjoy my successes that come from all of that work. That is a big deal for me. I'm super excited for what the future brings and cannot wait to share it with you. Good things are happening and I am happy!
I have so many people and things around me for which I am grateful. People like Brian who helped me plan a smart strategy and always had a critical eye for what works and what doesn't. His never ending support and belief in me. Friends who are like blood and their encouraging words of advice. Always ready to celebrate the good things right here with me. Inspiring artwork and music and stories all around. This world is a big place and there is so much to learn. I want to experience more of it and I will.
Final thoughts: Life is good. Enjoy it now because tomorrow is a question mark. Create! Inspire! Live!
Whatever and however you celebrate, I wish you all health and happiness in the new year.
