So I had this wonderful post entitled, “Lessons and Revelations of 2013” that was supposed to be posted on New Years Eve. Unfortunately, Blogger was down, and I was NOT able to post it. Frustrated doesn’t even come close to what I felt. The worse part of all, it wouldn’t even save it as draft. I closed my laptop and said ‘the hell with it’. Do I want to type it over again? Not really. That post took a lot of introspection, thought and contemplation to curate. I don’t know why I didn’t back it up. But oh well. Apparently it wasn’t meant to be, so I’ll do something different.
Moving on…So the 2014 is here. YAAAYYY!!!! *Throws glitter and confetti in the air while loudly blowing a party horn*
So glad it is. I was ready to hit the January 1, 2014 reset button. I’m grateful for all the things 2013 taught me, but it was rough. I laughed, I cried……..and cried……..and cried………and cried some more. Actually I think I went through a short spell of acute depression. All I can say is journaling and praying is a powerful thing. Nevertheless, it’s time to move on. It’s been real.
As challenging as it was, many blessings and some wonderful moments happened last year:
I definitely became closer to God.
I bought a car.
I was able to move in with my dad.
I met and took a picture with one of favorite gospel artists, Brian Courtney Wilson.
And last but not least, the live performances I saw during NBA All-Star Weekend was bananas!
I am excited about what this year is going to bring! I’m excited about making new memories and making new acquaintances. I’m excited about taking new chances and discovering new opportunities (career and otherwise). More than anything, I am mostly excited about exploring my passions.
I’m open to whatever the universe brings in 2014. I’m not going to list all my ‘2014 Intentions/Goals’ on the blog, I wrote them in my journal instead. There are some things I need to do differently, and then there are some things I need to just DO. Of course I’m praying for bigger and better things, but whatever happens, whatever adversity I’m presented with, I’ll count it all joy…and I hope you all will do the same.
Peace & Blessings,
