Hello, 2018! Hello, All!
I’ve spent the last few months of 2017 reflecting on my purpose here on earth and here as a blogger. While doing so, a few keywords came to mind…
Substance. Purge. Purpose.
In 2017, I can truly admit I lost my substance.
I lost my substance as a writer and as plain ol’ Destiny. I found myself writing for likes, retweets, and shares instead of for a direct purpose. There was this “blogger aesthetic” I wanted so badly to achieve, but couldn’t maintain because it wasn’t ME. My writing has a purpose, and it took me a while to realize I had abandoned that purpose.
My biggest fear in life is failing to reach my greatest potential.
I don’t want to be on this earth living a meaningless, unfulfilled life. I’m here to bring substance to those around me while also surrounding myself with people and things of substance. I want my time on earth to mean something.
And at the end of the day, I don’t want to just LOOK like I have it all together. I want to actually have it all together and have something substantial to show for it.
So in 2018, I plan to be of substance, engage in substance and provide substance. I will purge any and all negativity and stagnancy with no regrets, and I will focus on living an intentional and purpose-driven life.
What is your purpose in life? What steps are you taking in 2018 to reach your greatest potential?
