a stripped start

minutes away from a new year

although time is nothing but a construct and the calendar is a man-made agreement, the new year is still so beautiful. for many, myself included, it is much more than a date. it is much more than just a new number year. it is an opportunity.

to me, the new year is one more opportunity to do whatever makes your heart flutter. it is one more opportunity to take a stride towards your passions. it is one more opportunity to strip yourself of the domestication laid on you. it is one more opportunity to grow into the person you choose to be.

this new year is different than the others of the past.

i believe it has to do with all that i have experienced this year. 23 years of life has been no easy feat, do not be mistaken. this past year, however, i’ve definitely been pushed to the edge. an edge that i’ve caressed ever so lightly along the years, but i could never quite jump.

i was fearful.

this year, albeit by force, i’ve lost the fear. the void this fear filled has been replaced by will, by want. i am ready to commit to myself. i want to commit to myself. i want to commit and follow through with all that i am passionate about.

i go into this new year, stripped and ready.
