Stroke of Midnight

Where were you last night when 2013 turned into 2014? Is that where you’d wanted to be?

At The Stroke of Midnight

Strange how things can change in the blink of an eye. One minute you might be the happiest person in the world and in the next it’s all gone.

All the plans you were making for, a better year, a better you. How everything would be different. How you were sick of living the life you had and how you would change it all. How you were going to become the best you that there is and bring the happiness into your life that had eluded you thus far. And then there it is.. That one thing of many possibilities that is waiting in your path to knock you down.

Some people can work past it and others cannot. Which category do you fall into? But I guess it isn’t as black and white as that. I guess that’s called life. No surprises there, it knocks you on your ass and then kicks you when you’re down. What makes us is how and if we choose to get back up again because it’s so damn easy to give up and give in.

So cliché to say, it’s a new year it’s a new you. Screw that! It’s a new damn day and it’s the same you. The you that has been through the good times and bad. The you that chose to wake up and try again and to never give up trying no matter how hard the days became.

So my words this new year are.. yes it is the start of the new year but don’t depend on the new year. Everyday is a fresh start.. every moment is a fresh start because you make it so. No one else can do that for you. You write your own destiny. We’re all just stories in the end, lets make it a good one.
