Hello world. I’m back from the writing graveyard.
2018 has been a whirlwind year filled with the good, bad and ugly. But I’m still standing in one piece ready for the best of what life has to offer.
I’m spending the remaining weeks of this year putting things into place to ensure that I don’t repeat the mistakes that hampered my success in 2018. 2019 needs to be the best year ever for my family, writing, school, work and spiritual life.
I hope everyone reading this is having a good 2018. If not, then I hope your 2019 is everything that you want it to be and more.
Remember there is always hope for a brighter tomorrow as long as you have breath in your body. No matter how badly screwed up your life is, there is always a chance to start a fresh chapter. Your life is a giant book that can be revised as much as you see fit.
Keep writing your story so that you can reach your happy ending.
