As the year comes to an end, I must say that I've reaped many benefits and blessings this year. Sometime last year, I made a promise to myself to evolve, to see the beauty of the world, to be fearless instead of fearful, to grab life by the horns, and live firecely, and unapologetically, and this year, I did it all.
I've caught more flights that I'd ever imagined, I started conversations I'd never thought I'd have. I've met so many important people I'm eager to work with in the years to come. I've made mistakes, I've ended toxic relationships, I think it's safe to say that this is a year of consecutive wins for me.
Wins that my younger self would've never thought, or dream possible.
But I got a poster paper, skimmed through all of my O Magazines, and began to visualize what I wanted - which included a blog, car, Paris, Maui, and beautiful women I wanted to emulate.
First things first, I went to Orlando and from that trip I learned what I required from friends and from myself. Then I went to Atlanta, which further taught me more about myself, how to accept myself, stand up for myself, and believe in myself. Plus - I exerted fearlessness and confidence on another level.
From the two trips, I saw life as an opportunity to seize more opportunities.
I sat face to face with a executive from a major record label, and networked and fiddled my way into a an internship and job which felt utterly fulfilling, and not boring.
I've gotten closure, and confirmation that I yearned for from a toxic relationship. I've ended friendships, and realized the value of loving myself, and my family.
Personally, these last few months have been sort of dark since that toxic relationship, for me, was where I placed much of my self-worth in, but whats marvelous about that is that I can now manifest from this "darkness" and let my self-worth flourish from that.
When I went to Cambodia and Thailand, some of those fears came to life, and I had focus on why I had those fears. Face the fear and the voids. Running from them DOES NOT serve or benefit my Divine Self. By the way, we all have Divine Selves. Some of us have just been domesticated to starve, and not nurture that divinity within. Which is another thing I learned this year.
All in all, this year I've done, and learned alot and that worth more than anything I initially imagined I would've gained from this year.
To all of my readers, thank you for sticking with me on this crazy journey, and I hope you continue to follow me next year for more real and authentically dope shit.
HERE'S TO US, 2015.
