One Last Hurrah for 2012
Second, I’m not big on resolutions. My take is 365 days of trying to be a better person is way better than one day of promising to be one. Eat right, exercise more… blah blah, and back to old habits by February. Instead, I think about more of what I learned in the previous year and then how that pushes me forward. Not saying that I am successful just that I think about it all the time.
Yeah, I’m a mental work in progress.
On New Year’s Eve Eve, I was asked this simple, yet complex question by my good friend Katelin: What was the one single greatest moment, decision, event, experience, or memory you had in 2012?
Mine response was easy.
In 2012 I learned that I no longer have to take people’s shit. No matter the family, friend or colleague. That I now know I’m stronger than I gave myself credit. And I realized that all along I had the courage and conviction to step into traffic and forge my own path. Consequences be dammed.
Now… your turn. What’s yours?
“I no longer have to take people’s shit.” I’m still learning that. Even today I patiently sat there as someone came at me with a fervor that they would never dare another. I defended myself for a bit then just figured F@%$ it and stopped engaging. I’m learning this whole “strength” thing. Can I borrow some of yours for a bit?
If I could lend you some I would!
