I sit here today on New Year’s Eve reflecting on all that 2018 had to offer. If I said I accomplished every single thing I sat out to do this year that would be extremely untruthful. If I said that I figured it all out and am now living the good life free of setbacks and obstacles that would also be a lie. What I can say truthfully is this: I am going into 2019 happy as can be. In 2018 I managed to bring a lot of my fears into submission. I have a few projects that I am passionate about in process and it’s not like tomorrow I am going to have wake up trying to change my whole world. This has been one of the first years that I have started thinking about goals for the following year well in advance. Not only did I start thinking about them, but I also started implementing the changes so going into 2019 I am more so focusing on really sinking in to the feeling of being who I feel I am called to be. I feel so blessed to have a wonderful wife and such wonderful children. This year we grew as a family and I feel that is of most significance to me. When I started this whole DaddyBe way of thinking I knew I did have and still have a hard road ahead but the single thing that has changed that is going to make all the difference is my Wife is now fully on board and that provides a boost of confidence that makes the tough business and personal decisions involved much easier to make without feeling guilt or feeling like you are trying to drag someone along for a ride they didn’t sign up for. We are excited around here. The excitement I feel right now, I haven’t felt for a long time. I just can’t wait to fully give what I have to offer the world and help to create and facilitate a Tribe that is ready to do the same. If you are feeling down about what was accomplished in the previous year don’t let the shame and disappointment freeze you. Just count your current breaths as an opportunity to get better. Just take the time to evaluate and make the necessary changes. Just know, there are no “magic pills” there will be some good days along with the bad. There will be some major wins along with some embarrassing losses but hey that’s life. I would much rather lose while in the game rather than lose riding the pine. So for 2019, I am looking forward to taking my blue collar grind and using it to create a successful creative brand and I am sure the year ahead is not going to be the easiest year ever but it dam sure is going to give the most amazing and gratifying year a run for its money.
If you’ve followed the blog this year, I truly appreciate it and I wish you all a Happy and a Prosperous New Year!!!
Hopefully I’ll see you on the other side!
