This is my 500 for 1/4/2018

 

Another year… rolling into a world of new joys… new pleasures… new challenges.

 

Damn. Already thinking about 2019. Being of the mindset that I am not doing this to avoid the present but, instead, to have a longer-term goal-oriented focus at the forefront of my mind. 1 year is a good amount of time… but even a blip when you consider an entire lifecycle.

We are all looking for something greater in this life… that’s why we don’t have time to refuse to look beyond a 1-year mark. I have struggled with picking out the direction of my life from a longer-term look.. at least a realistic longer-term look.

 

So often I would fantasize about a destination that I didn’t bother to reverse engineer.

 

Looking back on my goals, I am able to calculate where I was deluding myself in my visions. It was a necessary part of my evolution but I can’t help but look t it as a time that was wasted. Knowing myself has been the most important part of my development. And I owe a lot of it to the people that never gave up on me. I owe it to myself to continue down this path. I know that I might not win but I reflect on a time in the future where I didn’t lay it all on the line and I am consumed with regret. The best that I can do is press forward with my visions… the largest vision that I am comfortable with entertaining.. and then work relentlessly to back it up with concrete steps, ideas… and to pursue it on a daily basis… a continual prayer… a continual pursuit… something that I must learn to beat into submission… not relying on moments of inspiration or a second wind…

 

the moment is now to embrace to the best of my ability.

 

I recognize that the odds are always stacked against us when it comes to blazing your own path. There aren’t many people that are able to clear a path that has not yet been traveled. I think that I am creating a mixture of the old and new into my visions.. something that I am wishing and willing into existence.. as part of a modified vehicle. One that I offer my own flair of opportunity and imagination… and adapting and adopting aspects that have been created in the past… borrowing like crazy… accumulating the existing wealth that surrounds me that resonates with the core vision that I have on my mind…

Press forward and always remember that it is one step at a time.. there is always a need for the next breath… don’t forget that. We are building something that no one can take away from us.. we are working to create something… an experience that you can look back on at the end of your days that you recognize as part of a greater purpose that you were striving to contribute towards…

 

be sure that your purpose is clear…

 

be sure that your purpose is in perfect alignment with the vision that you wish for yourself and the loved ones around you. Grow.. learn.. adapt… adopt… remain persistent…. Each day is a new fight… a new battle… and we must continue the journey.
