It is currently March 7th, 2019 and I have never felt so excited for what is to come than in this exact moment. So many changes are happening all at once and I wouldn’t want it any other way. At the beginning of 2019 I told myself, “This is your year to create. This is your year, go for it.” At the beginning of every year I choose a word that’ll keep with me throughout everything I do. This word just so happens to be slowly becoming everything I am. On New Year’s Eve 2018, my best friends Anna and Gabby got together with me and we shared our stories of what’s been going on and poems we have all written. We also exchanged gifts to one another, which led into a memorable moment, but I’ll talk about that in a whole different post. Anyway, the one I am going to be talking about now is the gift I received from Anna. At the time I hadn’t told anyone about what my word and what it meant to me, so no one had a clue. Anna tells Gabby and I, “They fit you guys perfectly.” I didn’t know what to expect, but when I opened up the gift I was speechless. Now, I’m not speechless a lot, but this was a rare moment where I was and I still can’t find the words in how touched I was. She knew me so well to gravitate towards this specific name plate with the word that I chose.
From that moment on I knew it was meant to be my word for a reason. I’ve stuck with it and plan to continue to grow in my craft. It is only March and I have created everything left and right and so much more. My head is constantly over flowing with ideas, concepts, visions, dreams, and I can’t wait to start every single one because this is my year, my year to create. -j.
