So it’s officially 2016. We made it! Feels good to be going into a new year while you’re not running from the past year. 2015 had a lot of ups & downs for me personally. I crashed and burned financially. I lost focus, and I stopped believing in myself at one point. On top of the fact that I was working at a job I hated, and dealing with a long distance relationship where we’d never been apart from each other that long in the three years we’d been together.
I learned a lot in the process though, like… Your happiness, and peace of mind always comes first! I learned that from a J-Cole interview with Angie Martinez this past year. We get so caught up in what we have going on that we don’t sit down, and just be thankful for what we do have. Be thankful for your family. Be thankful for your friends. Be thankful for your freedom. Absorb the reality of your life and love it, or try to change it until it becomes what you enjoy. Likewise I witness my best friend leave a GREAT job… Well a job with GREAT money because of he wasn’t happy with the situation. He had faith that things would sort themselves out and they did. Sometimes you do have to take major risk. Sometimes they pay off. If your heart is in the right place I believe it will pay off.
I did my first Podcast this year. I kept the blog post coming steadily up until I moved again, and had to refocus my efforts on my living situation. Now that I’m settled in Planet Shive is back in business. You can expect Episode V in the next few weeks, and after that I’ll put myself on a schedule. Try to make it a bi weekly affair. Also if you didn’t know… I stream. You can follow my channel here.
I want to say Thank you to everyone who supported me, and my dreams this year with this blog. It’s only been 7 months, but It surpassed my expectations for myself. I’ll try my best to not let anyone down.
