Looking back at 2014, I can say it was not what I had hoped or anticipated.
Did I accomplish all the goals I had set for myself? No.
It was a struggle. I was knocked on my ass more than once. And while I was able to make some strides, it wasn’t until the latter half of the year before I finally started feeling like I had my legs back under me. And once I did I found a staggering amount of catching-up to be done.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
In hindsight, I can say I was ambitious with little thought towards limits. I had unrealistic expectations as to what I could accomplish in a month, week, a day.
And I really underestimated the amount of sleep I needed in order to function, which in the end ultimately caused me to hit the wall…a few times.
But, the rough year is behind me and I am better for it. It has given me a keen awareness of my limitations, as well as a better gage of my strengths and weaknesses.
So with all that behind me, my hope for the New Year is high. I look at the months stretched out before me with optimism and excitement.
So on day one of 2015, I eagerly stand at the starting line ready to take the year head on.
Greatness awaits and will race ahead to meet it.
