On The Playlist: NOT A BAD THING by Justin Timberlake
* * * *
2013 was a doozy. Fast forward…many things have changed in my life…and some things still remain the same.
I’m in a good place now. I have an amazing group of friends who drag me out of my dark cave for some fresh air and fun. I found my muse and I came to terms with my father’s death. It’s been quite a ride and I’ve finally found the peace I’ve been missing. This year is truly about new beginnings and opportunities. I took some time off of writing so I could heal my head and my heart. Along the way, I’ve met interesting people who made me think…made me see things I hadn’t tried to see before.
I also discovered that it’s okay to fall apart because being strong all the time can become a crutch. You start to put up walls and you start believing that you can never not be strong for everyone’s sake…except your own. I’ve also felt heartbreak and learned that letting go can be healthy. I’ve always believed that love never dies, it transforms. Well, at least the precious kind of love. One that deserves to remain in your heart and life.
The best part of learning is growing. Maturing. Funny how the world looks differently when you shift your perspective. You’re opening yourself to new possibilities and a chance at happiness. I can honestly say that when I started to focus on myself, I was able to attract positive things… people… opportunities.
I’ve even stumbled across something totally unexpected and it’s inspired me a great deal—and it feels damn good! So, this year I’m going to continue to challenge myself and work harder to create even better stories for YOU, my awesome readers.
I promise there will be a new release and I want to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your continued love and support! You’re the reason I write…
