Every once in awhile I do this thing where I sit on my couch, look out my window and think about where I was a year ago and where I want to be a year from now. That usually ends with me reminiscing and thinking about the good old days when life was simpler. Strangely enough, this time I realized I’m happier now than I have been in a really long time.
There’s something about that feeling… feeling like you can change the world that energizes you. It makes you want to get up in the morning and conquer the world, 5am accidental wake-up calls aside.
It’s taken awhile for me to be in this place again but here I am. I can’t wait for what’s to come, for the next great chapter in my life. I once read somewhere that you can’t start that next chapter until you close the previous one— which is what I’m doing now. Let’s forget all the bullshit that weighs us down every day. I’ve worked too hard to get to where I am to let shit stand in my way. Embrace your past. Embrace the present. I’m running full speed ahead into the future.
