…. New Years often bring on a host of resolutions & declarations of new beginnings. That’s all really well & great.
I have always been a fan of making goals day-to-day & tackling them along the way. We all have our own process of getting to where we want to be. For those who know me personally, they know that 2016 was a really rough year for me, as it was for many of others. I experienced tons of set backs, heartaches & even break downs & I am still shaking off the ashes of a year long relationship that crashed & burned.
While I am rebuilding myself, I look all around me & notice all the people I love growing & excelling whether it be new promotions, new love, wedding proposals, welcoming new bundles of joy, buying their dream homes or travelling to their dream places all I can do is sit back & be happy for them. These are all people who deserve all the great things they have coming their way. And though I am certainly no where close to where I want to be, I don’t envy any of their happiness, I actually admire their accomplishments. It gives me another glance at hope &what hard work does.
I am not resentful or jealous for what others have, because I know that I too will attain what I am seeking & what I work hard for. I may not be mentally, physically, financially or spiritually where I want to be & yes days get hard, but I will make it to the finish line & you will too. Do not ENVY rather ADMIRE & continue to push forward to make your visions come to reality.
