If there has been one reoccurring theme in this blog it is that I am the architect and chief engineer of my life and destiny.
So, there is no one to blame but me for where I am in life. This also means that there is no one else to take credit for my successes either.
I mention this because some statistician or other type of scientist has determined that this day is the “saddest day of the year.”
I don’t know about any of that, but I do know about the ghosts of your broken dreams coming back to haunt you in the stillness of the night.
The thing to remember, to keep reminding yourself is that we are a combination of our successes and our failures.
For your successes may have moved you forward towards your goals, but it is your failures which have taught you what you need to learn, in order to succeed next time.
I won’t list off how and where I have failed, nor will I list the people I have disappointed or let down. Neither will I list off the people who have disappointed and let me down, either.
I stand here on the cusp of a new year and forging on ahead and on into savings. I will be building up my savings in order to finally own land; land that I can settle on.
Again, it is a long road ahead, and me paying off my debts is but one phase in it. I also need to learn to be not so hard on myself, yet another lesson that I am still learning.
So remember that your life is yours to chart and that if you are still here, you have succeeded more times than you have failed. That, in itself is something to be proud of.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
