And so, another year has passed. Lots of ups and downs, unexpected surprises and disappointments and a fairly stagnant year of personal development with respect to this blog. I sincerely hoped to write more.... but microblogging has taken up whatever little blocks of time I tend to have throughout the week to pen my thoughts. I consciously decided to sit and do something on the last day of 2017 that pleases me so here I am writing whatever comes to mind.
Do I have any huge New Year resolutions for 2018? Not really. I do have a few that relate to looking inward and clearing out priorities in life. I give it just one word - CONNECT. Connect with oneself, connect with the people that matter to me, connect with the world and connect with life in itself. Too often in this rat race I have found myself being completely disconnected and almost not even bothering to figure out what is happening with anyone who is not named me. Many of us have found ourselves in this situation when push comes to shove in our personal lives. The challenge I give to myself in what will be the biggest year of my life as yet will be to tap into my bandwidth and be able to deal with all of this patiently and come out on the right side of it all. Sounds like a humongous challenge, but this is also the first time I have been this clear with my goals in long in the face of adversity.. so that's that.
2018, I cautiously and optimistically look forward to you. Hope you don't get too crazy on me.
2017, thank you for whatever you have given me in experiences. I will never forget the learnings you gave me. For whatever little chance I got to spend with anyone who is reading this blog, I am most thankful for. (#Yodaspeak, anybody?)
To everyone who has been by me all these years, I hope you will do so this year too - and let me bug y'all a little more. Maybe this year I will do better to be on the good side of y'all.
Have a great turn of the new year... and Auld lang syne, everyone! Peace.
