2018 is about to say goodnight and that is just fine by me. It has been a topsy-turvy year for me and the hubs. I’m still at my day job but made a mental note and commitment to myself to be out of here by June 2019. My hubster is still doing great over at Time Spiral Tattoo Studio in Quakertown. I know it is still two weeks before it is officially 2019, but I just wanted to go over a few things.
a) Don’t give up on your dreams. This year I finally decided to self-publish my books and while I am still not generating sales, I feel good about my choice. The future is in the eye of the beholder. Most people who try to talk you out of things only do so because they lack the courage to go for it in their own lives. Surround yourself with formidable people who want the best for you.
b) It is so okay to say NO. Make a commitment to yourself to be your own best friend and do what is best for you. Say no once in a while. Say no as much as it calms your soul. We weren’t put on this earth to work at soul-crushing jobs, be around toxic people, or kill ourselves with addictions. Find out what your mind, body, and soul need and go after it. Get rid of any clutter that weighs you down.
c) You’re only as great as you think you are. I studied so much this year about the Law of Attraction, self-love, and being in the moment and I have to say, it has been mind-blowing. I am still working on a few things, but I did happen to instantly manifest a couple things (a Judas Priest t-shirt once and also money). I have suffered from low self-esteem for most of my life and I learned this year that my poor self-image stemmed from caring too much about what other people think. I had to believe it for me.
My full-length novel Consequences will be out in 2019 and I am so excited for everyone to read it. I am still debating on a sequel but haven’t quite nailed that down. Maybe I’ll turn my latest project into something related to it. We’ll see.
And finally, people are buying Poetry through Recovery which is awesome. I hope it helps anyone who reads it. Take care of yourself and remember to love yourself first!
