Kimono Dressing for a Fresh and Fab February11:00 AM
Out with the old, in with the new. This was my mantra when I started 2012 with the best intentions, vowing to ditch my old and negative ways in exchange for a better version of myself.
I did some thinking and reflected upon the past month. On one end, I'm more than proud to say that I was able to adhere to three of my new year's resolutions while at the same time, I feel quite sad that I have broken the rest on my list. But since I looked at the glass as half full instead of half empty, I'm still rewarding myself a pat on the back because at the very least, I have kept a few promises that I made to myself.

Although I started off slow in a lot of my "priorities," over all, January has been a good month. Like some people, I've had my own fair share of off-track moments. What's more important is that I was able to pull through to live another day.
Then it just hit me. I still don't know what to do with my life, where exactly I'm headed. I've been enjoying freelancing because it has given me the freedom that I enjoy, and because I have learned a so much by creating my own path. Looking back, I knew I wouldn't want to dwell in a life filled with regrets and what ifs.
You know, it's not a bad thing to just go with the flow and take your time to make a steady footing of what you really want out of life. It is when you lose your way that you find your direction.
I've come to realize that "starting over" isn't just a mind set every new year. Instead, it's an everyday commitment to work on me, only better. Each day is an opportunity for me to assess how I did and contemplate on how I can do better tomorrow; and that's growth.
Hitting that "refresh" button. Moving on. Turning on a new chapter. It all happens everyday.
So leave yesterday behind because here is another beginning. Happy February everyone!
P.S. With the theme in mind as starting new things in life, my friend, DJ Boom of 91.5 just put up his own blog. It'll be about music, the life of a radio DJ and how you can score a career in the radio industry. It's pretty interesting! Let's follow the THE BOOM BOX!
