Last year was quite an interesting year for me. Not in terms of achievement, but as far as reflection and taking an honest look at myself. During the better part of last year, I realized I was unhappy about a lot of things in my life. Tired of aspects of relationships with those that I have allowed in my inner circle, tired of accepting a career that I didn't really care for just to make ends meet, tired of church and the politics in it, tired of putting up with less than I deserve. So, I decided well before the New Year to do something about it. I mean what is this life if we can't enjoy it? I'm tired of compromising because that's what everyone says you have to do to get along. I don't plan on being selfish, but it's just time out for accepting shit and calling it soup. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm on a quest to be free. Free to be me, without compromise. The first step in that was to stop blaming others for where I was or wasn't. It's no one's fault but your own if you aren't where you want to be. That's clear! If you think someone else is still to blame, then you are just too lazy to try harder, or you've bought into someone else's bullshit, which still makes it your fault. Choice is something we all have. You may not like them, but you still have them. So, do yourself a favor, take a good look in the mirror and figure out what you need to do to free yourself. You'll feel a lot better when you do.
