Open Roads

It’s coming to the end of the first week of this month, and I’m flooded with thoughts about the future.  December always zips by.  A brand new year awaits.

It’s not only a brand new year, it’s the beginning of a brand new decade.  I remember when year 2000 came, the thought of being alive at the turn of the century was mind blowing.

We’re now entering the 3rd decade of this 100 years.  There’s so much to look forward to.  There’s so much to see, and so many places to go.  It’s really just amazing.

With 2019 coming to an end, I hope everyone’s year has been everything expected and better.  Now it’s time to take this base we’ve built, and build upon it.  Job changes, financial decisions, decisions regarding love and relationships, yes, we did take on a lot, but we were successful.

Once again, I’ll remind you of that picture with the little green plant growing through the bed of rocks (past article).  That’s what 2019 was, it was a rocky start.  It was high hopes, and a wonderful vision of what could be.  It was a new start on shaky ground.

🔥The door’s open now, the foundation is set, and all we need to do now is blaze this trail forward. 🔥


I tweeted today that I was tired of hearing about how fucked up the pension system is, how retirement for those of us born in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s is doomed, and how corrupt politicians are robbing us.  That may or may not be true, but I look to our elders for help with that.

I also tweeted that each and everyday we not only have an opportunity to create a life for ourselves, but we also have an opportunity to preserve and protect what we find for younger generations.

It would be amazing to know that our older generation didn’t fail us, and they didn’t let the system fall because they preserved what they found for us.

Just thinking out loud.

New year resolutions?  During 2020 I would really like to reestablish or rediscover my sense of self, and achieve a certain level of mental clarity.  Who am I? What have I become?  That’s where I’m starting.

How about you?  What are your plans for 2020?  What would you like to achieve?  What would you like to accomplish?  Remember, it’s not just another new year.  It’s the first year of brand new decade!  In the “Grand Design of Universal Time” that’s really significant.
