At the end of every year, I hear a lot of people complaining about how bad that year was and it’s time to get in a new year, as if they believe it will be better than that last couple thousand?
A year is simply what you make it…here’s what I made 2017.
I don’t believe in resolutions; I believe in revolutions.
Revolution- a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something.
Some revolutions can be sudden and quick but some take time; sometimes the change faces a resistance and I seem to be the resistance to my own revolution…but I’m not done fighting.
2018 is going to be a huge year for me; it’s going to be a time for change and to reflect and to enter the final stage of life.
Honestly, I never expected to still be living at this age- I look at life in 3 20 year sections and I will soon be entering my final 20 years. (anything over 60 is just bonus levels.)
I was given this role…I didn’t play it.
We are all given a role when we are born- sure, your parents hopefully tell you that you can be anything you want and a very small handful actually change it but for the most part, we all fall right into place.
Some people move out of that small town and hit the big time…some try only to return and some just settle in with the thought that something like that is impossible.
When I was born, my parents lived in the projects…the ghetto…tiny apartments within the Housing Authority- whatever you want to call it- I called it Crescent Drive. I’m not delusional, it wasn’t anything like you see in the movies or the ghettos of huge places like New York- I didn’t live in fear of drive bys or getting robbed…BUT…I was placed into my role.
Those that know me know that I love YouTube- #Logang4Life. I have several favorites from folks like Logan Paul to DramaAlert to Billy the Fridge to Boogie2988 and even Philly D! (Plus several Pokemon players as well – YellowSwellow and Omnipoke)
I sometimes get the question- why don’t you have a YouTube channel…well, I do…but I haven’t really posted on it for years and probably never will and that reason is very simple – “I have a face for radio and a voice for blogging.”
