I can’t believe it’s all over for another year! Now we’re in the lull before new year where we all take the opportunity to look back on 2011 and prepare ourselves for 2012.
I thought it would be a good moment to share a poem I wrote earlier this year. I don’t write poetry that often but it sums up what I want to say at this point.
Never Look Back
If I never look back, never look back
Then the past will no longer ensare me
And I can start to chase my future destiny
If I never look down, never look down
I’ll fly high to the stars in the sky and be free
To make all of my dreams reality.
This year has been full of ups and downs. My writing dream both invigorates and imprisons me. I’ve been both frustrated and inspired. I’ve experienced rejection and hope. I’ve realised detemination and persistence is the only way forward.
And now I face decisions, plans and resolutions that I feel both fear and excitement about. It’s time to take stock and to face a new year.
Time to acquire self belief. Time to move forward.
Never look back? I guess we all have to sometimes so we can learn from our past but we shouldn’t be shackled by it.
Never look down? I hope we all aim for the stars this year.
