2011 was my year of letting go. Of grief, blame, toxicity, bad habits, excuses, and my secrets.
2012 was my year of discomfort. Getting out, making friends, and learning to be social without my usual crutches to help me. I was not only viewing life through clear eyes, I was participating in it. I left my comfort zone and started to experience all of life; the good, the bad, and the not so lovely.
2013 has been my year of preparation.
I’m not really sure.
For change, I suppose.
I’m preparing for change. And TO change.
I just need things to be different.
So I’ve been focusing on my craft and my passions, and chipping away at my projects, all with the belief that something will lead to something – will lead to something. And that if I continue to do this . . . to learn, to improve, and to try to do good with an honest heart, it will lead me to the next thing.
I dont know where I’m going.
But I don’t need to.
I know the direction. And it’s NOT north, south, east, or west.
It is, “Forward”.
Forward is . . . one step . . . in front of . . . where I am right now.
I don’t have to have all the answers. But I do have to put one foot in front of the other and take a step.
The rest comes.
We will find each other.
