Ok, I know that my Happy New Year post was rather depressing but you know, some things have to be said. I am gradually learning that emotions have to be worked through; ignoring them will do nothing positive. I have chosen to work through mine with words and logical reasoning.
I just felt I had to purge myself of that truth. My adult life has been mainly about living my truth and as a grown woman, self-awareness is key.
That said, upon reflection, I figured out that 2016 was not the problem, I was. Things I left undone, things left unsaid, emotions I left unprocessed and my general outlook and output affected the success of the year in my personal sphere.
Now that we have the depressing stuff out of the way, lets us discuss the New Year. I for one, have been weirdly optimistic and that has been refreshing. I have seen several types of resolutions, challenges and Insta-motivational tips out there. I am not here to give a motivational speech and I have got no jar challenge up my sleeve.
Well, since I am optimistic about the New Year I have decided to come up with a semblance of a plan. I decided to pick a theme for the New Year and I didn’t stop there, I went ahead to make a list of things I would like to accomplish.
So, I have discovered in life that the only way to make a dream into reality is through consistency. (late to the party abi?)
In 2014, I came across an article written about a man who single handedly built his rural settlement a motor able road to the hospital in the nearest town. He didn’t do that by giving up. He woke up everyday and dug, fell trees, raked and built. In about a year or so, he had singlehandedly reduced the mortality rate of his entire community.
I have decided that my theme for this year 2017 is CONSISTENCY; on this blog, at my day job, in my personal life etc.
This year, we are going to dig, fell trees; remove obstacles, work through difficult circumstances and build. We are going to build and it’s going to be beautiful!
Cheers to this brand new year filled with accomplishments and zero fucks to give!
