A New Year

It's a new year now and this is the time when folks make resolutions and promises to themselves that this or that is going to change. Well I'm not making any of those types of promises to myself. I'm just going to continue to do what I have been doing and that is to do the best that I can with this life. There are things that I would like to improve in my life and just like last year I was working on if I didn't complete them last year I still have this year.

Don't let this world put pressure on you and tell you that you need to do this with your life in any specified amount of time. Whose life is it afterall. It's yours so your goals are only limited by you. And when I say limits don't take that in a negative conotation. Limits to me are what I can handle when I'm ready to handle them.

For me the holiday season was nice and relaxing. I don't go all out and make a big fuss out of things anymore during the seasons. I guess being single that sometimes you find out by fussing at these stressful times you become disappointed. So that stress is now relieved from me. As Jackie Washington said in Jackie's Back..."Because What? Thank you. Say No More!"

Each day is a brand new live it as such. If you can set something up to benefit you tomorrow then by all means do so...but if you can't. Why stress over it.

Forgive me I know I'm rambling.

You were not rambling. You were speaking a much needed truth. I've already taken your words to heart. Thank you.

My brother is really in need of such words right now.

Positive words are always good in a negative world. I also write to say, in case you like, that I am selling artwork to raise money for Kenya. Hope you are well. All is on my blog. Afriboy.

Damn, boy. Are you me? You sound like me. I don't do New Year's resolutions, I just try to be the best me year round (not always easy or accomplished), And as for the holidays. I enjoy them, but I don't go broke for them anymore. Forget that crap. LOL. This is forge of @home. I don't know if I ever got back with you and thanked you for your prayers on my other blog (my mind is bad), but thanks for the prayers. They always help.
