Happy new year, people!!!!
I only say this now because I haven’t been up to writing for a while. My writing mojo had so aptly deserted me. Each time I’ve thought of writing something, my poor fingers have protested so adamantly. Watch TV instead, they screamed at me. Just do something else. You have nothing to say.
But today, I decided to ignore all that and just come out and say hi. How did your year end? How is your new year going so far? Do you see growth in the next few months? Do you feel stagnated? Are you super hyped, or do you already feel discouraged? Perhaps you are just feeling a little “same” about everything. Like, what’s the deal with new years? Days are pretty much the same, right?
Well, no matter how you feel, welcome to 2018, a new block of days. Purpose to do something. Start a business, fall in love, change someone’s life. Perhaps not as dramatic as that. You could just change the way you think, or something as mundane as being nicer to your neighbour. You don’t have to take a thousand steps to be in a greater place. Sometimes, all you need to take is just one step.
I know nothing about your life. I know not what demons you have to fight daily. I don’t undestand your struggles like you do, or even your joys. But know this…you are going to make it through. You are going to be fine. Everyone may be soaring already, but take your time to crawl first. You are going to fly. Adversity may come, but that is not your permanent address. When I say something, I know that it shall be. Just watch. Let our hashtag for this year be #GoMe2018. Take your inventory now and make comparisons at the end of the year, and you will see. You can tots tell me when you notice the change in you come December! Celebrate all the small victories! Buy yourself icecream when you ace that test, and if that adds calories to you, you can totally just downplay the calories. Let no victory go unnoticed.
Also, God loves you. You may be tired of hearing it, but it’s true. God loves you, chum!
