I must admit 2017 was a quiet year blog-wise for me. My lack of discipline probably played a part in it; that matter of saying, "I'm going to do this, this and this," but then not it coming to actual fruition. You know the deal! So as 2018 looms around the corner I'm challenging myself to pull my socks up and at least get a weekly blog update out there.
What I can definitely look back upon though is the adventurous achievements I've made in my travels. This year saw me through an adventure both challenging in physical and mental strength. Hitting that pile of rocks at Everest Base Camp 1 really brought tears to my eyes. It wasn't just a challenge for myself, but also a dedication to friends who also had a heart of adventure, but had their lives cut short. It was the 10 year anniversary of a good friend of mine who had passed away.
So I'm really looking forward to 2018. I know the path won't be easy as I anticipate many challenges ahead, but I look at them face-on with much excitement and good fear. I'm looking into the face of a new business venture, creating an online community to enrich the lives of others creatively and to give back to the community that has needs. At the same time I also see the spiritual battles ahead, but I'm glad to say that I'm not alone in such a battle. Without such difficulties I know I'll never know my own potential nor be pushed to grow. Thank you 2017, thank you to all of you whom I've met, chatted to and who have supported me. Here's to looking forward to 2018. Wishing you all a most blessed and happy new year and hoping that you too will look forward and charge alongside me towards 2018.
