It’s been an interesting year to say the least.
Last year when the big 40 was approaching I made a decision.
That no matter how hard my life was, no matter how much stress, no matter how difficult, no matter how much I got knocked down that THIS YEAR was going to be the BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE and the best year of those around me.
I set some insane goals, I didn’t give a shit about what others would say, I ignored haters, I ignored jealous people, I ignored negativity and negative people and I just focused in on things that mattered TO ME and to make my life and the lives of those around me better.
So far this has been the best year of my life by far and it’s only getting started.
