It’s that time of year where we start seeing end-of-year recaps (it’s not just Spotify, y’all.) I saw one a little while ago, and it reminded me that I actually started to write one last year and decided not to post it.
To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with recaps. I think it can actually be a good thing to review your year, especially if it’s self-reflective and shows you where you’ve grown – whether in business, art, or mentally, physically, emotionally, all of the above. Celebrate your wins. Celebrate your growth. Celebrate the unique person that you are and the things you’ve accomplished. I’ll cheers to that with you [with a good craft beer, hopefully 🙂 ]
I can’t say with certainty why I didn’t post it last year. For some reason, it just didn’t feel right. That was before my current journey really started where I’ve begun to pay more attention to how I feel about things, which I find kind of interesting in that I seemed to be tapping into something without consciously realizing it.
Maybe I’m just paying more attention now. I’m trying to be more present, in the moment, whereas previously it was always about what’s next. (I’ve had people ask “when do you sleep?” over the years because I always seem to be working on something.)
Sure, I still plan things and have goals and continue to have an inherent need to create. And with music and film and art, all of that can take a lot of time and planning. And there’s a time and place for all of that. I’m just trying to be more present, even in the midst of doing those things.
So… I don’t know if I’ll have another post to share before the new year or not, but either way, I hope you have the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year. I hope you embrace the here and now. I hope you tap into and experience the love that you already are and that you share your unique gifts with the world.
Thanks for reading, listening, watching, supporting, existing. Much love.
