Goodbye, Two Thousand Fourteen

The end of another day. Another week. Another month. Another year. Another decade. Tick tock. Tick tock. The clock seems to move faster and faster, it’s face creeping up as if to say “Hurry up. You don’t have much time left. Get moving or stay where you are. Safe and sound.” Safe and sound. There is nothing wrong with that. But how do you grow if you remain static? How do you gain if you do not risk? How do you create if you do not do?

I have so many thoughts in my head about all of these things. My answers and conclusions stem from a myriad of sources. From growing up as an immigrant in a new country. To attending (GASP!) public schools. To being raised in one religion with parents from two different religions. From the cycles of being lower class to middle class to upper middle class to top 5%. To being raised in a household dominated by women. From my worldwide travels. To the many occupations I have pursued. But now is not the time for any of this. (Afterall, time is moving. Tick tock. Tick tock.)

Instead, I just want to say that I have really learned so much and have had a tremendous growth spurt in 2014. I am thankful for all of the blessings and lessons 2014 has provided. And all of it was because I took risks and chances. So, even if time is creeping by, one BIG thing I’ve learned is that there is always time to do the things you want to do and pursue the dreams you’ve always wanted to. No matter how young, old, thin, fat, short, tall, green or yellow you are. I have big plans for 2015 and cannot wait to see what blessings and lessons my actions will bring. As they say, the best way to predict the future is to create it. That is plan numero uno for me.
