taking stock

2018 is here and boy is it exciting! It’s like turning over to the next chapter of a book you’re really engrossed in and you can’t wait to see what happens next.

The end of last year ( lol, we can say that now) had a lot of us talking about all the things we would leave behind in 2017 as we carry the good vibes on to the new year, but how about those things we are carrying forward? Every journey needs some supplies and so does the one into a new year. Humor me as I share with you some of the things that I am definitely carrying on into 2018.


I am hoping that you are all well, it has been a while.

We are at the end of 2017, Imagine THAT! I don’t think any year will pass me by without making me think that it went by waaaaay too fast! Where does the time go?

The last time I did a post like this was in FEBRUARY ( I am quite embarrassed actually) and seeing as we are at the end of the year, I figure taking stock for the whole year makes more sense.

To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge . – Socrates

I don’t know about you, but that is quite deep.

However, I agree that acceptance of the lack of knowledge is indeed true knowledge.

It is the logic that informs why it is wise to ensure that you surround yourself with people smarter than yourself, for in a setting as such, there can only be acquiring of new knowledge and growth.

You should never feel too comfortable with knowing that you are the smartest among a group of people,


that may be cause for alarm.

You will indeed be failing yourself.

It is a wonderful feeling this one. Like being at the starting line of race that you KNOW you’re going to win even if you fall and stumble and even bruise a little, the fact that you will come out on top, is just as good as a head start 🙂

A month in and so far so good.

The stars are aligned and the universe is conspiring.

It is going to be what we make it.

All we have to do is channel the right energies.

We have started strong so that is going to count for motivation.

We just need to keep on keeping on.

Its that time of the year when we bore readers with recollections from the past year and our plans for the new year.

 I have to say though, documenting these achievements goes a long way into appreciating yourself. The new year plans make for a great accountability system especially if you are like me and disappointing yourself scares the hell out of you.

I guess lets take this as a taking stock and new year plans combined kind of post, with some 2016 photo memories.

Happy reading
