It’s something about the first of the year. The newness of it all. Everything seems possible. A Fresh start.
REFLECTIONS / LESSONS LEARNED
Last year was amazing. It’s not that I achieved everything that I set out to achieve or that everything went as planned but that I learned so much about myself. I renewed my zest for life and reconnected with God.
I think I’ve said this before but I am a serial entrepreneur at heart. I’m passionate about everything. Normally, I would beat myself up at this fact but over time I’ve come to accept that it’s just apart of my quirky little personality. However, last year I decided to focus on one thing so that I could become a badass at it. It doesn’t mean that I have to neglect my other passions, in fact, I realized that I could incorporate them little by little, I just wasn’t going to focus on them.
Letting Go //
Letting go of the need to be perfect has been freeing. Along with this is acceptance. Acceptance that everything isn’t going to go your way – you’ll be alright. Acceptance that you aren’t perfect – nobody is.
Just Start //
Starting is often the hardest part of any endeavor. I’ve found that it is often linked to a fear of “something” like, “I won’t be good enough; “I don’t know how to do this”; “this will be hard”; blah, blah, blah…
So we don’t start with that thing that we’ve had in our hearts to do for so long. It’s our brain’s way of protecting us from the possibility of failure. But what I’ve found out is that if you just start, for some reason you will keep going. Those silly little fears quiet down and you say to yourself, “this isn’t so bad”. So here’s to starting.
THE YEAR OF GO HARD OR GO HOME
New Year’s resolutions – some people hate them, some love them. I don’t really make resolutions but I like to set a theme for the new year. This year will be the year of Go Hard or Go Home. I’m going balls to the wall in business, in love, with everything that I decide to touch. It’s all the way in no matter what.
TRUSTING GOD, FOR REALS THIS TIME
It’s easy to say, “I trust God” but do your actions truly reflect this? Mine wasn’t for a long time. I was trying to take things and matters into my own hand which left me often times in panic and full of disappointment. Towards the latter part of the year, I said, “I trust you God” and actually started acting like it. Honestly, life still tried my patience but the peace I felt with letting go and letting God do what he needed to do has been immeasurable.
