For the upcoming year, I plan on doing more things towards my dreams. I probably said that last year, but if I can do one thing every day, then 2019 will be even better. I plan on not sweating the small stuff, like not letting people get to me. I need to ignore those people when I'm doing something for myself. I need to learn that I matter too and it's okay to do things that are good for me and my future. I need to learn to love me and to take care of me. I also need to stop spending so much time on YouTube and spend more time writing.
Anyway, I promised a bit of what happened over Christmas. It sounded better in my head right when we got back which is probably when I should've written it, but it's okay for now.
I though back, hoping to fill my head with a bit of joy from the fun family times we had not two days prior. We paid a visit to my brother’s kids over the Christmas holiday, a trek we make every year. We watched some movies and had some nice quality time together. Ma wanted us to go see the River of Lights in Albuquerque. So, the day after Christmas, we drove up that way.
Along the way, we made a stop in a convenience store. The bathroom was broken so I left to go to a different store across the street. I backed out of the spot and the boy child said “aren’t we forgetting someone?” I looked over at his sister and then to the empty chair and it actually took me a moment to realize that I had left Ma in the store. In my defense, she said she didn’t have to go and planned on staying in the car. I had to park the car again and go in the store looking for her.
I’m glad I made that drive half asleep in the dark because the next day I heard that over 90% of my trip would’ve had very difficult conditions and I probably would’ve panicked with Goliath flashbacks.
So that was the trip. Not very exciting because we spent so much time just hanging out watching TV or at the movies. It was time we spent together so that's all that matters.
Anyway, last post of the year. Hoping for even more and exciting posts for the future. What are some of your resolutions for 2019? How do you plan on achieving those things?
Inspire, motivate, believe. Together we can change the world. Let’s all work together to make a better place. We can be each other’s cheerleader. We all rise together.
