With 2016 at an end and 2017 beginning, I have to say a big THANK YOU to those who have helped me to move onto bigger, brighter and better things.
These people have been my close family and friends. They’ve been immovable in their love, loyalty and unyielding belief in me.
But I’d also like to say THANK YOU to the ad hominem group of people who have helped me to realise I have been more enriched in my experiences this year since I am free of their toxicity, more confident in my abilities and stronger too with a drive that has given me some huge successes in areas I never dreamt were possible.
For those of you who think you’ve not come across an ad hominem; you more than likely have. These are people who try to attack your character, with malicious, false and defamatory statements, slander and lies.
Yep, I’d like to thank them all for helping to create some wonderful serendipitous opportunities for me in 2016! Without you I would have stayed in that dark place that you continue to be stuck in.
I AM thankful that in 2016, the misfortunes I have had to endure has enabled me to
- Create my blog entitled; Thoughts From a Black Girl’s Diary https://wordpress76354.wordpress.com
- Have some of my work published in Adverbially Challenged Volume 1 with Volume 2 coming soon and some of my work in the 2017 anthology. (Thanks again Christopher Fielden)
- Some more of my work will also be published in the magazine http://nupeoplemagazine.com in 2017
- Having the confidence to teach again and enjoy doing something I have always loved and had a passion to do.
So make sure that in 2017, however hard things may seem, DON’T GIVE UP! THANK your loved ones for all their help and support always.
Thank the ad hominem that may exist in your life.
They will encourage you to become a better person in life for having not risen to their levels of vitriol, deviousness or loathing for others.
You will become the star that you are, despite any small misfortunes. STAY STRONG and POSITIVE!
I wish you all a happy, peaceful and fortunate NEW YEAR and I am ever hopeful that 2017 will bring you much love and some wonderful opportunities.
