This is the day of the year I reflect on the year just gone and ponder what I would like from the year ahead.
2017 has been a year of building upon my stability, providing me with a home and working environment that is ideal for my needs. My mental health is extremely positive and my stress levels are at an all-time low. Nothing frightens me anymore and this is not just a short term high, but a long term trait that is preparing me for the second half of my life.
This year I have had the privilege of visiting Dubai, Brussels and Barbados amongst many other places, a list anyone would be proud with. With two cruises this year, ‘when I grow up’ is now right now and I am proud to be living some of the life I have dreamt about as a child. My home is now also where I belong and the best move I have made.
The last few years I have been in the shadows and lost some of my public standing while still building my social media presence. I have spent the time building my stability and 2018 is the year I focus on gaining paid work and establish my political presence. While having financial growth is a goal of every year, this is something existing about where I am emotionally that suggests this is the year I find my golden eggs and move my work to the next level.
In 2018, I am going to be even more confident to be honest about my politics and my so-called controversial views of Dysability as I can out of the shadows. As the hateful political correctness lobby goes into overdrive with a level of complacency and moral smugness that is unacceptable, like Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, I am happy to lead the rebellion for truly free speech and proper debate of dysability issues. My confidence is bolstered by the fact I know many people share my concerns, even if they are not brave or maybe foolish enough to say it publicly.
I am excited about 2018 and ready for the challenges ahead of me, whatever they may be. While the political picture is very concerning, my local situation is positive. Technology continues to provide amazing improvements to my life and Coventry, as well as the West Midlands generally, is enjoying a period of investment and opportunities.
I wish to offer my readers, supporters, friends, colleagues and indeed my enemies the very best for the New Year ahead and may we all get what we deserve.
