A TOAST TO 2022
I know it is late, January is almost over, but hey will it really be January if I did not do a 2022 post? (I think not) so here I go. Seeing as I gave up on new year resolutions a long time ago, please do not consider this post as one. I should also mention that I have a habit of disappearing from this page for months, and re- appearing to write something. Sometimes, I am not even sure if anyone reads this , or if it makes any sense. The purpose of writing on this place was to share, write, give a piece of myself with every letter that I punch from my keyboard. I am not that much of a social media person, and at some point I focused on wanting to write in a particular way, to maybe gain followers and have a certain number of hits on this page.
Well, …. that has not happened and perhaps my lack of consistency and inability to write more often here has not helped the situation at all. So here is me actually planning to write more often here. This was supposed to be a different post, and what I had written down in my jotter/diary to post here is not what I am currently writing but I would just continue in this manner.
The purpose of having this page was to express my creativity, and maybe somehow someone could laugh, smile and find something in a line, paragraph or something like that. And sometimes it can be hard, because if you are an extroverted introvert like me (yes you can be both), taking pictures and posting places you have been may not be your strength. It is definitely not mine, and no it’s not a bad thing, taking pictures that is. I think that somewhere down the line, I will find a way that it works. I don’t know if anyone who comes across this feels that way. The thing about creativity is that , you somehow find a way to put the pieces together so they somehow fit. So somehow I intend to put the pieces together, and make the posts work. I can do that and also not loose the essence of this page and why I decided to write in the first place.
Essentially , this is a reminder that with the newness that comes with a new year, the possibilities and prospects are enormous!. It may be time to open that page again, complete whatever you had left half way. Maybe the answer lies in picking up every-time. It is like a relay race, and that one runner that trips and falls but somehow still gets up to make it to the finish line. While he may not take the prize, the desire to finish what he started to complete it in-spite of his fall is the driving force that will propel him above every obstacle.
I always liken life to a journey, there are bumps along the road, there are potholes, that make the ride uneasy, but driving along those roads we somehow learn to continually show up. Whatever, may have happened in 2021, let it go. Look towards the newness of January and let it stir in you, something that becomes a driving force that propels you, through out the year.
In summary, here is a toast to you, and you, and you, . I raise my mug of tea( the harmattan in my end is giving a cold morning ) to you. Have a blessed 2022!
