Brave New World

It’s 2017 and the Rooster Year is finally here!

My new motto for this year is: Brave New World. 

I found this phrase quite apt and coincidentally timed perfectly as the world around us has quickly changed along with America’s latest president. It seems like dystopian literature written as sci-fi decades ago are foretelling the kinds of news we read today. It’s difficult to abstain from commenting on people’s perceptions and the more you read, the more you get sucked in. The more you step away the more you feel distant from others. This is our world and we must overcome and deny pessimism. It’s the perfect time to make a stand and continue to affect generations of people.

I say again, let’s celebrate and be brave. Build your courage to step above your own insecurities and try things for the first time. Learn along the way and have people be part of your journey. If there’s anything I’ve learnt in this world is that people love seeing others progress and succeed.

I have felt the kindness of many strangers along my journey and I feel it is my duty to be able to share what I can, when I can to whomever seeks it. Not because I am any kind of expert but that my learnings should never be kept a secret but instead shared with others so the mistakes I’ve made can be improved and that others won’t have to trip on that same spot.

Being “on top” doesn’t mean staying there and kicking everyone else around you down. Jealousy feeds insecurity but if you want to be brave, it means standing tall and facing adversity with the right step forward. That is exactly what I want to do and what I believe is my motto for this amazing new year!

I hope you will all join me as I begin to implement this on my social media platforms:
