welcome 2018 | Simple Scrapper SPARK Magazine

Today is the 7th of January in 2018.
As I sit I feel my shoulders and my neck.
I know I’ve run myself too low a few times over 2017.
Especially in December.
While December came and went,
I felt as if I was in the back seat watching it all go by.
I was scheduling the events I loved.
I was creating the things I loved.
I enjoyed the shopping.
And the hustle.
And even the bustle.
But something was missing.
It was almost as if before I checked something off my list,
I was thinking about the next thing.
And the next thing.
And even the next thing.
I’ve been busy before.
So I can’t say that I think I did too much.
This time, I wasn’t reflecting.
I wasn’t sitting down and intentionally thinking about my gratitudes.
I certainly wasn’t walking or running.
It wasn’t me that I was putting as a priority.
That’s not going to work in 2018.
I haven’t made resolutions this year.
Focusing rather on doing better each day.
Remembering to stop.
Remembering to take a deep breath.
And I mean a really deep breath here.
Remembering I am important.
Also remembering that it’s nobody else’s job to make me feel that way.
It’s mine.
Don’t get me wrong here.
I am not in a bad place starting off this year.
But I don’t want to continue going on at full speed ahead.
I want turns.
I want bumps.
I want to be bored.
I want to hear the music.
And smell the flowers.
Time to let it go.
Starting today.
Then tomorrow.
And let’s just cross our fingers that I don’t forget the next day either.
Welcome 2018.
