Absent Of A Topic 001
It’s 4:30 AM on the dot as I’m starting to write this. The light bulb finally lit up.
“You can have your cake and eat it too.”
I’ve always said this, why is this just clicking now?
Because I’m finally living it a little bit? I've gotten a taste?
We’re starting to fall into a rhythm of doing what we’ve always wanted to be doing, and lately we’ve been having a ton of fun with it. Celebrating achievements, birthdays, & even just small minuscule victories that nobody else cares about - but we do. Because as small as some of them are, they’re constantly changing and bettering our position and outlook on life as we know it.
I said a lot of things were going to happen this year. I said I was going to do a lot of things. And due to my statements I find solace in these entries. One thing I promised myself is that I would write more, I would blog more. And then in this - this post right here, I’m not even sure if I have a topic yet, but it’s 4:36 AM now & I’m just venting, putting it all into words on a page. If there is one thing that I take comfort in, is that this is so simple in terms of goals I’ve bestowed upon myself for the year, that in these lines I can publish my thoughts, ideas, emotions & all to begin to sort out and make sense of it all so that hopefully I can meet my own expectations of the rest.
I’ve been repeating a lot of the same things lately, my own personal sayings and mantras to live by. I probably sound like broken record to everyone around me. I always do.
“We all need to work together and support each other, that’s the only way we’re going to win.”
“Progress. Progress. Progress.”
“We can’t stop now. Things are only getting better. They’re going to keep getting better. This is our year.”
There’s plenty more, but I’ve exhausted them all so much to even want to begin to type them, let alone even bear the thought of them in general. Plus, I learned a while ago that there are two rules for success:
- Never reveal everything you know.
And if you understand that, you’ll understand my thought process better. I like previews. I’m obsessive over “sneak peeks” before the bigger picture finally unfolds. There’s always so much that I’d like to share with everyone, but can’t yet. It’s the best-worst part of the job. I’m always holding onto something.
I’ve been looking back the last few years at how things were and how they’ve been for the brand, myself, and my friends and family. As much as a rollercoaster as it’s been, I think things are genuinely starting to smooth out. And with that, I’ve been taking note of the peaks, but really slowing down to delve in and understand the valleys. From here, and with a shifted perspective on things, I’ve been able to use the past to try to map out the future. And it's looking good - God willing.
So this is the introduction into 2018. Expect more of this, at-least once per month. And expect more people contributing to the blog very soon as well.
Things are moving and my brain turns into scrambled eggs on a daily basis because of it. And trying to find a topic to write about seems so unnecessary sometimes.
I'm just going to write, absent of a topic from here out.
I'm just going to write.
Peace + Happiness
