2018 is My Year to GO

Ready. Set. Go!

It’s still January: Happy New Year!

I’ve been thinking about the significance of the word “go” since it came to me at the end of last year.

The end of last year had me in a period of positioning. I became an ordained minister and I submitted my first short film to a production company. In other words, I’ve been quietly working. My sons call it stealth mode.

I haven’t been moving in silence on purpose, it just worked out that way. I’ve missed blogging but I’ve enjoyed writing in other places.

This blog was supposed to be a place for me to hang out and think out loud but it turned into work. I don’t want this space to be work.

I’m going to write when I have something to say. I won’t put pressure on myself to write commentary on trends or pop culture or be overly concerned about keywords and SEO. Those things are important for bloggers because the bills must be paid. Unfortunately, taking that route put me under unnecessary pressure.

This year, if I feel like writing from my bed while watching SNL (the Dave Chappell rerun aired tonight) I’ll do it.

I will go.

I will go visit.

I will go write.

I will go paint.

I will go teach.

I will go leverage.

My scripture didn’t make sense when I decided on it because it speaks of taking care of the home. How can I go if my time is spent inside?

She rises while it’s still night and provides food for her household and a portion for her maidservants. —Proverbs 31:15

Reading this made me realize that I must meet conditions in order to go. First, my home is my top priority. To go, I need to ensure that it is taken care of. Last, I need help so that I can go.

I’m getting sleepy. So, it’s time to go to sleep.

Good night.
