I look back on the last year as most others do around the new year. Some big changes were made in my life and they took quite a bit of adjustment to accommodate. People walked out of my life because our shared journey wasn’t compatible with their necessary path through this life. I’ve finally made peace with this fact but I would not have gotten here without some help from my friends – and a crap ton of Beatles songs.
I have shared my true self with more people this year and instead of feeling shut down and hurt, I feel more free. More people are accepting the true me simply because I took the time to show them. Some of them are still coming to understand everything and it will be learning process. But overall, I found love in 2014 and not in the traditional Hallmark movie sense but in the vast respect and joy of being myself.
My goals for the new year are quite simple. I want to remain happy. Remain in this place of happiness that I have found in myself. I will surround myself with people who love me and enjoy my company and distance myself from anything toxic which tries to take my happiness away.
And of course, as always, my goals for writing are the same: write often. I have a book in the works that I hope to get through editing this year so I’ll have to keep you updated on how that goes.
Whatever goals you set for yourself this year and whatever you go after, let it be for your own happiness. Don’t let yourself get caught up with what everyone else thinks you should be doing or what they think is right for you. Only you know exactly what you need and desire in this life. Stay true to that and everything else will follow.
Cheers to you.

Being true to yourself can be a daunting assignment – especially when one’s ideals and perspective aren’t in tune with the mainstream. Even at the ripe old age of 52, I still have some difficulty expressing myself because I know I will likely piss off a great deal of people with my thoughts. But it’s worth it. All the best to you in your writing quest! Have a successful and happy 2015!
To you as well! Thanks you for your kind thoughts!
Dear young friend, I’m delighted to walk beside you on your journey and you know my ear, shoulder, hand and hugs are yours when you need them.
As for the editing, that’s the next stair on our journey coming up. Time to do great things in 2015! I believe in you.
