Break Patterns: Foresight
I feel like I might have mentioned this before but if not, the fuck it, here it goes again. One thing that self-awareness has brought to my attention is that I really enjoy patterns. Among the countless number of doodles I did during church growing up, I remember experimenting with making patterns was one thing I focused on consistently. As an individual who values balance (due to the chaos that often occurs upstairs), patterns are something that I feel have always eased the mind.
Then again, on the flip side, it depends on the pattern.
Lately I’ve noticed once pattern that I’ve been stuck in for the past couple years. Around this time, in the closing months of the year, I’ll find some inspiration and start getting active, go into the next year on that same high, eventually fizzle back off, wondering where I went wrong and trying to get back in the groove.
Well, it’s that time of year again, and at this moment, especially with number 300 coming up, I’m feeling just as inspired to move forward as ever.
But I’ll tell you right now, it’s not going to be the same story with the next turn of the calendar year. I’m putting it out into the universe right now: I’ll look back on this year, 2017, as the year that everything started to change, and I mean EVERYTHING. And I’ll have this daily blog to thank for it. I’ll have to figure out what to do every day for next year (or maybe I already have).
Doesn’t matter either way. What matters is this:
2017 will be the year I look back on as the year I started taking off.
