Dear Constant Reader,
While catching up with a friend today, she made the comment, “I am not a fan of this second half of 2015.” And in looking at my year to date, part of me was inclined to agree with her. It has felt at times as though the universe was…is…testing my resolve to hold the course.
I can almost envision the the universe peering over my shoulder, dubiously surveying my current endeavors as it leans in and whispers in my ear,
How bad do you really want this career that you claim so ardently is your calling?
Have I faltered undered pressure of that question over the past year? Please see massive gaps between blog posts for that answer.
But more importantly, however is despite the gaps, I keep finding my way back. With every missed step there has been a clear and conscious choice to get back to work. A choice to not give up on my writing…my art…myself.
“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.” -Deepak Chopra
The universe may be determined to test my mettle this year, next year or more likely everyday for the rest of my life, but I am equally determined to make every one of my goals a reality. How long will it take me? I have no idea. What I do know is all things will come with time and hustle.
So as I sit here writing this, a new month stretched out before me and I am ready. While I may not be a fan of how 2015 has rolled out so far, I know I am stronger than whatever it can swing my way. I may have tripped and stumbled, even found myself on the floor a time or two, but I keep getting up. Keep going and pushing forward.
Its time to hustle harder.
