Happy New Year to you and yours and I hope you got the CHANCE to celebrate it exactly how you wanted. I wanted to say THANK YOU for being who you are in MY LIFE whether past, present or Future, just THANK YOU. Today marks the beginning of the 2013 year and I know you have big aspirations and goals to accomplish this year; Some new, Some old, Some you Never Thought about and that is a great thing. This is a small little note to give you some great insight on your New Year 2013:
We must Reflect on the 2012 year which gave us all, a test of patience, faith and perseverance across our mental, physical, financial and physical phases of our life. 2012 was a heck of a year for all of us. Each of us have either lost jobs, lost friends, lost loved ones, lost faith or belief in people or in the system all together but the great part of it all is that it taught us valuable life lessons. We all learned over this tumultuous year that we are stronger than we ever given ourselves credit for. You are still here and it might not be where you exactly planned but it is where you exactly suppose to be in the grand scheme of things. Despite all of the lies, health issues, misunderstandings, broken promises, misguided directions and unwanted attention, we all have came thru the fire, wiser and stronger than we started. Each of us, will take these thoughts differently but based on what we individually have witnessed or gone thru over the year the bottom-line is still the same. Take all that and use it as the stones for your path forward and bricks for that house you want in the near future. You are resilient and therefore will always be the last to stand tall and strong and lets be thankful for that. Lets also be Thankful for those great moments in 2012 also from personal endeavors to new careers and business endeavors to my “Miami Heat” winning the NBA CHAMPIONSHIP, yes, I had to throw that in this conversation because that happen in 2012 too.
PUSH it 2 THE LIMIT
Going in 2013, do not be hung up on the things that didn’t go right in 2012. Do not dare allow yourself to be caught up in the negatives of 2012. Lets focus on the positive things that happen through 2012 and that may be only thru the lessons that negative situations taught us after the fact. You know they say hindsight is “20/20.” Everything that didn’t go our way has a reason why and now you know why and therefore you have one less obstacle in your path to your own “pursuit of happiness.” I myself, went through somethings and 2012 was the biggest test for me. I lost a lot of things that I never thought in my life I would lose. I lost my job, I lost my motivation and a few people very close to me in death and other people because of choices they have made. I also had to deal with the fact that for once in my life, I couldn’t fix other people’s problems. I had to find an inner peace within myself during this crazy year and even though it was extremely difficult I did it. 2012 was the worst financial year of my life but it was the best personal discovery a profound sense of happiness. Its funny that I had to go through all the noise in my life and head to get a “moment of clarity.” I learned that I have some lazy, inconsiderate people in my life who were only around for the good times so they helped me voluntarily because they disappeared over the year which I am thankful for in hindsight. I was surprised by the few people that I can call friends or good acquaintances that actually stepped up and helped me along the way either thru conversation and insight or financial support at times. Those people made it possible and kept me from going into total meltdown mode and I thank them for that. I am very thankful and blessed for them no matter how small or how big because I have found my path to my “HAPPY PLACE” and no its not Magic City for all of you smart asses that are reading this…lol even though Magic City does make me Happy. (SMH)
Make 2012 the best of it the worst of your 2013. If you had things you didn’t do in 2012, thats okay do them in 2013 its not a race just get it done when you can. Time cannot be repeated so enjoy every moment like its your last and do not get hung up on the “cannots,” because “cannots” have never did anything in life.
(1) Find something you love to do and if you are like me get paid for it.
(2) Find someone to love forever that is very important and I don’t mean go get married or so that may not be for you but whether its a relative, a child or friend a buddy just find someone to share your life with going forward. We are “The Cool Kids,” therefore we don’t stick to traditional habits that much…lol.
(3) Say Thank you for these gifts, blessings and wonders of this crazy thing we call life no matter how small. Everything happens for reason, find that reason and move on.
(4) Learn how to forgive those that have hurt you……wait…hold up….<– I haven’t learned that yet
(5) Learn when to ask for HELP
(6) Learn when to say “NO.”
(7) Be There Person that you want People to be to you no matter what.
(8) Tell those close to you how you really feel, repeatedly, Tomorrow is not promised especially with these crazy people now a days. For example: “I’m Sorry, I Love you, I Miss you, I forgive you, Good-Bye.” We must stop letting life get in the way of LIFE. Put the egos aside and be the BIGGER PERSON in LIFE.
I wish you the best of this New Year and beyond whether I am involved with it or not and I hope you find happiness in all that you do and in those you do it with.
**** I challenge you not to do RESOLUTONS. I CHALLENGE YOU TO DO a 2013 BUCKET LIST.. write your list down of things to accomplishment. Yes, Write them down.. take a picture and post it up on your social media page. This will make it easier for your friends, family and enemies to hold you accountable therefore making it easier for you to eliminate the list. *****
HAPPY NEW YEAR, matter of FACT, HAPPY LIFE

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” — Marianne Williamson
