Day One

Simply put, it was the best year of my life….

In 2011, I made a promise to be kinder and gentler, to reach out more to people and allow my feelings to show. I feel like, as I assess the year that was, those qualities allowed me to grow as an individual and therefore allowed me to move past the old me; but, it’s time to evolve from last years me. I’m considerate, and patient, and I’m loving, and a pretty good friend… But, to all those that know me, the two-word combination they would never use to describe me are Kind & Gentle. I’m super nice, but, I am never gonna be warm and fuzzy… I’m just not that person, and, as I tried to force that upon people, it came across many times as disingenuous. And, I want to be as genuine as possible.

2011 was an exercise in branding and rebranding.


But, at the end of the day, I love the simplicity of Aldanzo Pratt. I love the idea of being who I am. And, I love great color usage.

I feel like returning to the person I’ve always been… The guy who was just humble, though slightly brash, who was always there for his friends and was always thinking.

I’m moving forward. I’m always moving forward, but, for this year, I want to be Incredible. For the first time in years, I’m capable of thinking straight. There’s a clarity that comes with no longer worrying about sickness. I can now go full days and weeks and never think about my illness.

My Resolution: If there is a resolution I’d like to have for 2012 it would be to eat more Taco Bell.. It’s weird… I had Taco Bell for the first time in 6 years the other day… Oh how I missed it!! It was my first true fast food love as a child.

Good Times…

  • Ummm… So, yeah, don’t eat more Taco Bell. It’s delicious POISON!!! I love, love, love, love, the American male who came up with the authentic fast food that is Taco Bell.

    I stopped eating there for a while once they discontinued my beloved spicy chicken burrito. It was super amazing!!! Last week (during the last week of the year) I went back and had something similar. The XXL Chicken Burrito. It was super delicious but I can’t relapse into that addiction. (and please don’t get me talking about the new sauces they have!)

    Long story short, I have to stay away from Taco Bell. There are 3 locations within a one mile radius of my house; one of those being close to the gym I’m trying to go back to.

    My resolution: Attack it! (Everything, my walk with Christ, my BRAND, my health, my life!)

    Sepia 🙂

    • I think i’m in love with Taco Bell!!!!! I’ve missed it SO MUCH! So, Yeah, Viva el Taco Bell!!

      Your resolution is an awesome one to have! I’m planning to try to do something creative every single day in 2012. I have so many thoughts from the past few years that are just backed up in my brain. They keep me up at night, excited about the possibilities. I don’t wanna say 2012 is gonna be my year… that’s cliche.. But, It will be a year in which I keep evolving. And that, will be Awesome!!

      Here’s to going BIG!
