At the beginning of the year, I made promises to myself about how I would make this year better than the last. I went back to the drawing board of my life and filtered out the goals – both personal and professional – I’d hope to accomplish throughout the year.
As we enter the second half of 2021, I’m reminding myself to not get too attached to crossing off all of my goals for the year. Would it be nice to have all of them accomplished? Of course, it would. But it’d be even better to accept the flow of life and not force things to happen, especially when we don’t have full control over them.
Many times, I find myself switching up or adjusting my goals throughout the year because the one I had originally planned turned out to not be as fulfilling as I had expected.
And that’s okay.
I may not complete all of the goals I had set out for this year, and that just tells me that those goals are meant to be a part of a new book of my life.
So this raises the question: What’s next?
What’s next for my blog…
What’s next for my personal life…
What’s next for these last few chapters of my current book…
I can sit (or lie down) and type out everything else I hope to achieve for the latter half of 2021, but I’d like to keep most of them a secret for now.
What I do want to publicly express is that I feel a big shift in my life-changing – evolving.
I feel a certain awakening in my mind, heart, and soul that’s overflowing with a renewed sense of passion and adventure.
There are many ideas and topics that I can’t wait to share with you, my dear readers. Topics that I was too timid to cover before, but not anymore. Topics that I hope will continue to inspire and heal. There could be a “The 7” 2.0 writing style. I deeply miss that.
And there may be some sort of an expansion to Henpal. *wink*
I have a multitude of projects lined up that I can’t wait to unveil in the near future – most likely past 2021.
Along with all of these professional goals, I am working on creating a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
I am focused on a shipload of self-love, self-healing, and self-care – all of which will come along with me for the many years to follow.
Life is full of ups and downs, but I’ve learned to stop letting fear and control prevent me from living the best life that I can in any circumstance that I get into.
I am creating my own destiny and fulfilling the life that I desire.
So, what’s next?
What’s next is an adventure full of unknowns, success and failure, lessons and blessings, friendships and heartbreaks, and most of all, love, serenity, and happiness.
