A year ago from today, I was doing absolutely nothing with my life, other than getting high. I felt hopeless and had given up many of my goals, goals that had cemented my focus. It felt like I was walking in a dark abyss, as everything had already fallen apart. Crushed dreams seemed to be all that I had.
A year later, I’m living in a place I didn’t even knew existed at the time, I have a job, am going to college, and have a beautiful support system.
Within one year I created a completely different life, in a place I’ve never lived before and wasn’t even aware of. A complete 180. It makes me wonder how different life will be at the end of this year. You never truly know.
Almost every day, an excitement and clarity guides and grows within me, it is a new essence, one almost alien to me. Whatever events unfold ‘out there’, I am feeling deeply optimistic about this year – another foreign concept for me to digest. I’ve come to realize that as long as I focus on garnering my knowledge, strength and focus and peace, I will become those points of attention.
