2021 is going to go down as the hardest year of my adult life. I find myself mere hours away from 2022 and while my prospects for the future do look better, I cannot say I’m all that thrilled with how everything finished up. I’m not my an ideal living situation and it only seems to be deteriorating by the day. I also wish I could find a bit more contentment for my job, but life doesn’t work on my schedule and it’s up to me to be at peace with my job or find a new one.
I’m grateful for my friends, all of whom I feel I’ve grown closer to this year. I’m appreciative of my health, which is the one thing that has been solid this year. I’m excited for the future, since I’m dedicating myself to exploring my spirituality and philosophical practices in the new year. I’m going to do everything in my power to find peace and contentment in my life and learn to better roll with the punches.
I’m also eliminating as much negativity in my life as possible. I’ll be eliminating some internet practices that incite rage and find better places to spend time online. Or better yet, I’ll find myself reading more which is a goal of mine.
I also want to do more writing this year, and not just blogging and non-fiction. I don’t have a plan right now, but behind my intent to work on finding peace in my life, writing some fiction or completing some writing projects is next on my list.
Speaking of writing, I do plan on taking a slightly different approach to my blogging. I’m always tweaking my technique and inspiration and going forward I’m asking myself if I’m writing for fun or am I writing because I feel like I’m supposed to. The truth of the matter is, I write a lot and sometimes I write things because I’ve always done it or because I feel like I should, but I’m not hosting thousands of readers here. I believe my reader ship hovers somewhere around five people and that’s across blogs. So, no more time constraints on when to write something or unnecessary pressure on what to write. It’s just gotta be for fun, so I can free up time to work on more serious projects this year.
With that being said, thank you for supporting my writing this year. Thank you for following me across three blogging platforms and sending texts or leaving comments regarding my posts. It means a lot to me and I’m very appreciative.
I sincerely hope that 2022 is a better year for all of us. Sure, there will be strikes and gutters, but I do hope we can find peace and happiness in our lives.
