Sound Off Sunday

How are you starting off this New Year?  Have you made resolutions?  Have you decided to get, healthy, join a gym, eat healthier, become more organized?  What did you resolve to do this year?

Years ago, I decided to give up on resolutions.  You start off strong at the stroke of midnight and before the Dr. King holiday your good plans are out of the window.  I decided that I would make my changes prior to January 1, and use the new year to create a theme for my year and to create a vision board.

As you saw in my last post, I decided that 2016 would be my Year of Yes.  Now I have not read the book yet, I am getting started today, but I realized that I often told myself no.  Maybe it was fear, maybe it was finances maybe it was a lack of faith but when opportunities came my way, I often was the block between something new and something familiar. Maybe it was the fear that I would actually succeed, been there so many times.  Maybe I was scared that there would be mistakes and setbacks along the way, but then again that’s life right?

Whatever the reason, I have decided to grab life by the balls and run with it.  If I fail, I will get up and start again.  If I succeed that’s another blessing.  What I do know is that this year I will not let any opportunities pass me by.  I will try, and try again.  I have decided that I will no longer stand in my way and fear and lack of faith will no longer be a part of my story.

I have some major things on the horizon this year.  God is doing some amazing things in my life.  I will be moving into so spaces and some areas that I could never have imagined I would be in and most importantly, I will complete my EdD program!  I welcome you all to follow me along this journey and lets see what life has in store.
