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.
