Like most, at the end of the year you begin to create a list of “New Year’s Resolutions” and beat yourself up about what you didn’t do in the past and how you will make better decisions for the year ahead. Well, this year I’m looking at my life a little differently. I took the plunge in March to relaunch my blog and I’ve seen nothing but blessing since. I truly stepped out on faith because it’s always been my dream to share my story – in my own way. My blog allows me to do that…as well as try my hand at a few different things.
For that, I’m grateful. This year I’ve had the opportunity to partner with a few great companies:
I’ve also being featured on a few blogs. All of this reminds me of what I’ve been taught growing up; “Faith without works is dead.” How can I believe for things or want things but don’t have enough faith to start putting in the work? God has promised me that if I show up He will too!
I’m not going to say this year has been easy, because by all means it has not! I’ve struggled tremendously with moving on and believing in myself.
Comparison is the DEVIL! I need you to hear me!
I’ve questioned myself, compared myself and even judged myself and that’s what social media does to us sometimes. We have to stay focused. I’ve had to take mini breaks to get my head right on occasion. I’m finally in a great place with understanding that my calling is my own and whomever is going to rock with me will!
To everyone that’s been in my position, understand that you’re not alone. No matter how hard life hits NEVER lose focus!
