As I say goodbye to 2018, a year that has taught me so much through both pain and gratitude, I’m reflecting on this humbling moment in remembrance of family and close friends who’s physical presence are no longer among us. I desperately say to you all that we have to find a way to be swift to forgive, to love abundantly, pursue your passions relentlessly and to create bravely.
I can’t express enough that I wake up each morning, healthy in mind, body and spirit with the same energy that I had when I was in my 20’s. I’m thankful that with all the adversity I’ve faced in my life, I remain as ambitious and inspired as never before. Mark my words… I will leave a legacy before all is said and done.
At this time, I want to remind myself that nothing is more rewarding and breathtaking than staying grounded, reflective, inspired and continuing to live with a purpose. Let us all welcome another year of more self-discovery, prosperity and inner peace. Here’s to new aspirations, new promises and rekindled hopes… today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. It’s entirely up to you to make it a good book.
In the words of one of my favorite travel writers, Pico Iyer, I leave you with this quote:
“In an age of speed, I began to think, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting STILL.”
Happy New Year all,
