New Year, New Me… Lol sometimes cliche just works~


New Year, New beginnings~

Every year each of us believe we will finally get our well deserved happiness after that “one” thing~. I will finally be happy I just need that new house, that car, that companion, that job, it is a never-ending drive toward something that is going to bring me a feeling of success in this life which will ultimately lead to that grand feeling of happiness. The funny thing is, when we finally attain “______” we often times realize it is not what we imagined; it isn’t quite the answer after all; and we shift our thinking to the newest chase.


Enter Holidays~

The holidays meet us with feelings questioning our adequacy; often times we are stressing over the answers of the questions that have yet been asked; by family and friends we seldom see; but no doubt love and care for.


What are we doing now, where are we working; what happened to “him/her”~the ex you don’t want to even think about, why are you still single, when are you getting married, why haven’t you had any more kids; why are you still with “him/her”, where are you living; what are you driving; and then the sizing up with the other “same aged” cousins, and often rude/passive aggressive questions like; “Oh my gosh your pregnant again; how many kids are you going have.” or the famous; “weight” remarks for those who are too skinny or too plump.

Exit Holidays~

The holidays quickly pass us by and leave us with feelings of ~ :/


Gotta be more, gotta get more this year…


Sadly, this is often times when we shift our focus and stop wanting, caring for, and appreciating what we already have. I am not measured by the things I own; they don’t own me; and neither does another soul; so my focus this year will be more concentrated early on, from the beginning. Keeping it real, is all about accomplishing what I set out to accomplish and making sure I realize the journey is just as important as the finish line. How I feel about me this year, how each moment makes me the person I will be at the end of the year. We all have the same number of hours, minutes, seconds in the day; we all have the same number of days; yes some of us are taking down some days, weeks, and maybe even months; but we all have the same time; we all share the same calendar; and locally the same season.


To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time

We all have the same opportunities; hardships, and very different ones in many different ways; the truth is we can ALL obtain success on our own personal level; we can all work hard to obtain many desires; we really can; and if we strive to feel successful; we need to figure out what will really give us those feelings of success; what has given us feelings of success in the past, we need to do more of it this year; it isn’t just going to come to us; we have to make an intention.

INTENTION~ an AIM a plan; when I go to visit Jesus in adoration; I often make an intention; what my aim is my plan; a wish and plan I have to carry out that plan. If I am determined to achieve something; I make a promise to follow plan; and it isn’t bargaining with God like a lot of people try to make it out to be. I don’t walk in and say, “Lord; I need this; and if you give it to me, I will do this….” and intention is talking over your plan with the Lord; and allowing him to talk to you; and you won’t hear a rumbling voice speak back; but doors will open or close; opportunities will come or shift; and always remember the plan; keep true to your word and when you don’t acknowledge it; true forgiveness that is Jesus; he understands; get back on and stay true.
