Today is my birthday and it feels like the beginning of a new year for me. A new chapter, a new start. I’ve realized there is a lot that is dysfunctional in my life and I am going to change those things. I’ve done it before and I will do it again. As they say “It’s not about how many times you fall, it’s how many times you get back up.” Tonight, I am having dinner with 5 of my girl friends and as from tomorrow, I am going straight for all the things I have ever wanted in life. Some may say I am not 100% committed because “on Tuesday” sounds like an excuse. Truth is, diving into things without having a plan and without getting your head right, will result in lack of success (for me). I’ve written down exactly what I want to achieve, how I want to achieve it. My biggest goal being 6 months, when I fly home to South Africa.
I had a birthday party this past weekend, and after my friend embarrassed me, slapped me in the face, hurt all of my friends’ feelings and was, quite frankly, a big disrespectful douche – I realized that this could not have come at a better time. As I wean out the bad habits, why not wean out the bad people, too. As my heart bleeds for my friend, I was his last standing friend in the world because of how rude and bitter he as become. At the same time, a friend is not a friend if they hurt your feelings and do the things he did over the weekend.
I’ll be blogging a lot more now, throughout my journey. I hope you’ll follow me and give me some encouragement. It’s time to work hard and get everything I ever wanted.
