End 2018, Begin 2019

It’s New Year’s Eve. Tomorrow is
2019. It seems like every year, in spite of the fact that I’m not a huge fan of
New Year’s Resolutions, I find myself trying to start over in some way.
2018 was a year of starting over
for me in a couple of ways. It took me a while, but I started writing a lot
again. I finally quit Pizza Hut. I usually get fired from Pizza Hut. I quit
because someone threatened to fire me this time. Close enough.
I’m in a more creative state of
mind than I’ve been in a while. I’ve also been extremely busy letting some of
my habits die, so that I can get into that creative mode.
I started today because it’s
Monday, but it’s basically the beginning of the New Year for me. I don’t know
that I have a resolution in the way that people usually define resolutions. I
do feel resolute though. Maybe that’s better. The definition isn’t really
different, but the New Year’s Resolution has a bad reputation.
I have simply resolved to make
incremental changes, and follow a path that is more my own. I think that’s a
vague concept that self help over hypes, but there is that quotation, “If you
don’t prioritize your life, someone else will,” and I believe that’s truer than
most of us even realize. I don’t even think it’s malicious on the part of
others most of the time, but others will collectively direct your life if you’re
not intentionally directing it yourself. Follow your path. Clear your mind.
Accept shapers truth. Lead enlightenment strong victory. It’s like another
“The night is calling, I have to go. The wolf is
hungry, he runs the show. He’s licking his lips, he’s ready to win.
On the hunt tonight for love at first sting. Here I am. Rock you
like a hurricane. (Are you ready, baby?)” – The Scorpions
