2016 for some has been an extremely hard year, but if you had a good year then you’re one of the very few who did. We’ve seen many worldwide tragedies take place this year; right from the very beginning of this year it’s been a mass downward spiral of bad news. However we should look at the good points of the year and take those with us as we venture into another new year, and not to say that we should ignore the bad completely.
The cosmic energy has been majorly off this year. Frequencies shifting, jumping, lowering and literally swinging from the chandeliers. As we dawn into full swing holiday mode, let’s reflect on the year that has been. Let’s take all the bad and accept it, then let’s take the good and appreciate it with gratitude.
I for one has a mixture between good and bad – as I think most of you have had this year. Spending another year away from family (that being my father and friends in South Africa), as much as it gets easier, it’s still hard. But on the flip side career wise things looked up for me this year. I mentioned in a post in the beginning of this year about the hardship of moving countries and literally starting from scratch in an industry that I have over 20 years of experience in. Nothing has humbled me (even more than I am already humbled) to work harder and want more. It’s been a tough road, loads of bumps and many moments of “what the hell am I doing here?”. Thank goodness I am not one to give up that easily, because as the year went on, so did many opportunities rise for me. The start of 2017 sees a few projects I’ve been working on finally come to light. I have an online show launching on a channel that’s set to be the ‘entertainment version of Vice’, I have an online show on a channel called Foodiez.tv which I hope flourishes in the new year and finally the web-series I have been working on is going to be aired – and showcased at a festival in L.A in February 2017. I founded a new company and plan on giving it horns in 2017. I’ve made amazing connections and will continue to build on my new founded network, and I also gave my time and efforts to collaborate with two SME’s in South Africa – because let’s be fair, the underdog needs some love too.
Amidst all of these now great things, there’s also a few other projects in the pipeline for 2017. So all in all, it’s been a fruitful year with many lessons, many greats and many ‘oh well… onto the next one’ moments. I am grateful for all of it, the good, the bad and the ugly that came with 2016 because I always believe that everything happens for a reason and I know that even though I may not see it now, there is a lesson, there is a link and there is a positive outcome to everything – should I wish to believe in that. And I do, so yay!
So, I want to take this time on this day 22 December 2016, to wish you all a Happy Holiday. No matter how your year has been; good, bad, ugly, horrendous, amazing – reflect on the moments that broke you, lifted you, make you cry, had you up all night or made you just want to sleep all day.
For those of you who lost loved ones, reflect on the beautiful moments you shared with them, keep them in your heart forever and continue being bad ass for them. Those who got married, had babies, bought a house, got a promotion, their dream job or their first car – congratulations on your next adventure. Those who are stressing about the future – don’t. Stop stressing, because stressing never changed anything. Change what you need too in order to minimise the stress. Be bold. Be fearless. Be epic and don’t be afraid to make that decision that is going to change things up for you drastically, but in the end, bring in ultimate happiness for you. Change whatever that needs to be changed within your life, your circle, your sacred space so you can flourish in the new year. Stale job, find a new one and if finding a new one isn’t on the cards, then remind yourself why you have your current job and let that fuel you until the time is right for you to move on. No job, go and get one, even if it’s not the one you want. Unfortunately life isn’t free and you can’t spend it mooching off people. Stale relationship, work harder and communicate more but if you’re both on different paths, then it’s time to let go. There’s nothing worse than being with someone who isn’t on the same page as you, but it’s also hard to let go of someone you love regardless of the page. But ask yourself these questions; what’s the point of being with someone you fight with all the time? What’s the point of being with someone who doesn’t want the same things you do? What’s the point of being with someone who isn’t on your side? What’s the point of being with someone who doesn’t fill you with what you need? What’s the point of being with someone if they are not good for you or if you feel like you’re not yourself 100%? Be kinder to your hearts. It’s your heart remember. It deserves kindness and love in order for the right kindness and love to love it and be kind to it like you deserve. Don’t settle. Don’t ever settle for what is second best to your heart and your soul.
Wishing you all a love filled festive season and a wonderful new year.
Here’s to 2017 being the year that we all as humans come together to reign supremacy.
Love, light and blessings to you all
