First Post of the New Year

Good evening world.  In my neck of the woods, there is an hour left of the first day of the year 2016.  This is as good a time as any to share with you some of my hopes, dreams, and ambitions for this new year.

I will be 34 this year and if any version of me that existed prior to ten years ago saw me, he would be disappointed to say the least.  I am happy that I am doing better with my walk with God and understand that these things take time to fall into place.  Patience is a virtue I usually have in abundance, yet looking at things with 24 year old eyes or 14 year old eyes is a difficult perspective to appreciate.

I endure because I have a renewed sense of purpose.  I endure because I am walking with a better sense of commitment and conviction.  There are so many ways to convey my ideas and my vision that I no longer can lean against old excuses.  Intellectually I understand why certain ideas make millions of dollars but emotionally, I find it difficult to quantify why this and not mine?  I don’t want to come across as a whiner or complainer and rarely has my pillow been soaked in tears, but it does give me pause and compels me to question what I am doing wrong and how I can sell myself better.

I am not some fount of indispensable wisdom or untapped originality.  I fully accept the derivative nature of some of my ideas because I am inspired by so much and the cross over in styles and genre are immense and I want to pay homage to those scenes, emotions, snarky one-liners and everything else that has ever made me smile, tear up, or want to tear what little hair I have out of my scalp.

Never give up, right?  Walk with purpose, talk with conviction, and love with all my heart.  I think I’ll be okay.

Check in with me tomorrow for a new feature called “Half Baked-Ideas for Full Stomachs.”  I believe the hallmark of being a geek, mark, or nerd is the drive to create or look at things in a unique way.  So, pun intended, prepare for a taste of that tomorrow.  Good night, and God bless.
