My life is a work in progress. On this the first day of 2017 I look to the future with a sense of both dread and wonder. This new chapter of my life that I am embarking on is not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. I am finding out who I really am but I am still feeling trapped by my actions, attitudes and past.
It is for this reason that I did not make any New Years Resolutions because in my daily adventure of dealing with all of life’s challenges that are in front of me I know today that the person I was, is not who I am, and who I am is not the person I will be. I did not make any resolutions because as I walk down the path of my future, I want to experience the wonders of each moment.
As I have already found out, not every moment is good, and not every moment is bad…sometimes the moments are just moments and there is something to be said about not looking for the black and white in every situation.
I have resolved to be true to myself this year and be unresolved as my life takes its next evolutionary twist to build me into a new and more authentic self.
As this blank canvas that lays before us starts to unravel with each day…I wish everyone and everything the same thing that I so desperately wish for myself…strength to be authentic.
To all of you, Happy 2017…start writing this chapter as yourself!
