2009 was a rough year. In some ways I feel I want to just press the reset button and start over, but in reality what needs to happen is a new game all together. Forget the reset button.
So I am reevaluating everything, from where I live, what I do, and how I make money. Everybody has great advice for me. “Do this.” “Do that.” “Join me in this.” “You’d be great at that.” Or so they say. Seems like everybody either wants me to make them some money (with little regard to how much I make) or they want me to do stuff I hate or am not good at to make a living. Not very appealing options. And 2009 was filled with way too much of those. I listened to other people, and all it has done is hurt me financially, emotionally & spiritually.
2009 was the year I was lost, as far as my life purpose goes. I listened to others and let myself get distracted by their advice, their invitations and their projects & dreams. But they are not my dreams.
And as a friend of mine once said:
Never stray from your path, or else eventually you will be going the wrong way. — Eric Uhrhane
And that is exactly what has happened.
Some people mean well, others try to use me, and sometimes it’s a bit of both, but what it comes down to is me standing up for what I stand for. And unfortunately that means remembering what I stand for. Somewhere I have seemed to have forgotten or gave up somewhere.
So 2010 will be the year of me being a powerful leader, creating my destiny, and doing what I love and am good at, and make money doing it.
2010 will be an exciting year. I declare it. It’s time to turn things around. 🙂
