Dear 2015

Dear 2015,

You been really good to me and that’s not because things went the way I thought they should, but it went exactly the way it was supposed to go. Things got ugly; there were failures, heartbreaks and many disappointments. A beautiful thing was produced from all those things and it’s called growth. Through the pain brought forth the strength, through the failures brought forth understanding, through the heartbreaks brought forth clarity, confirmation and a higher yearning for self worth.

You see 2015 you’ve been really good to me, and I am forever grateful for the opportunities to grow. 2015 taught me how to get out of my comfort zone and go after any and everything I ever wanted unapologetically. Living for others opinions and doing what they think I should be doing was no longer a part of my thought process. Living for me, my goals and dreams were the only things that excited me to get out of the bed and hit the ground running. It took me 30 years to realize it was ok to be a little selfish with me and my time. In 2015 I vowed to thrive in my purpose every day instead of just merely existing in everyone else’s. Falling in love with the process of life has been my anthem for this year and I’m so glad I did.

You see 2015 you’ve been really good to me, you showed me once again that it’s essential to keep a great circle of people around you. People that will pray for you, encourage you, support you, remind you of your worth and tell you when you are messing up. You’ve shown me that new people can walk into your life and completely show you a new side of life that is refreshing. I’ve learned that some of the best things in life come unexpectedly and organically.

I’ll tell you one thing 2015 has not been pretty but it’s been so good to me. There is so much beauty in growth, and I’ve been blessed to grow and learn another year in preparation for the breakthroughs ahead. Whatever you’ve gone through this year I encourage you to find some beauty in the struggle. Reflect on how much strength you really have to have gotten through all that you have. You can grow so much if you allow yourself to. You’re still here breathing, alive, and well, ready to bring in and conquer another year.

So to 2015 I say Thank You, Thank You for the lessons, thank you for the discomfort. I’ve grown so much to be an even better man than I ever was and it was because of you. To 2016 I say to you welcome and I look forward to showing you just how much I’ve grown from 2015.

Pain is temporary but growth lasts a lifetime

I wish everyone a blessed, happy, healthy & prosperous new year.

Happy New Year, See you in 2016 where we continue to grow & win!
