Word of the YEAR

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Every New Year I focus on a word for the year. A word that is going to drive me, something that I put into everything that I do for the year. This past year it was GROWTH. While I worked on growing my family, I also worked on personal and spiritual growth. But to be honest it kind of fell by the wayside. I didn't grow as much as I would have liked, but then again this is me being the biggest critic of myself that there is, but I digress.

This year, I decided to choose something else. Something that I need to work on that reflects the most growth that I need in life. If you know me then you know I'm a bonafide procrastinator and I mean BONAFIDE. I wait till the 11th hour to start things and then have the biggest anxiety attack because I realize that I didn't start on time and that I am going to not finish it and then race for it to be done all the while not getting any sleep, or I just start things and don't finish. From my health to, to writing, to other projects I've started and stopped because I lost interest or drive, or because if I really think about it, I'm lazy,  but this year I promise myself to continue and to not stop. I promise to keep my commitments and to see them through. I took the time out the other day to journal about what I want to be committed to.

I need to make sure that I am really aware of what I'm doing and why I need to work on them. This was so enlightening for me and it also gave me a focus. I really want to get to where I am not stopping and starting over but I am consistent and I am focused. I have a good feeling about this year. I know it. I can feel it in my bones. You know that feeling you get when you KNOW things are going to work in your favor. I'm telling you I CAN FEEL IT.

My final work of commitment was to send my future self a letter. A letter documenting all the things that I have done that will not be opened until January of next year. GIRL!! I sat down and wrote myself the most realest letter. I kept it all the way real with myself and I know I have to get down to business when it comes to getting these goals crushed. I started during my lunch period and finished at the end of the day. It took some time to get my real self out there. I had to remind myself that I'm doing this for me and if I really want to be a better version of myself then I need to keep it as my student would say A HUNNIT

I tell you, I am so ready to crush this year its not even funny. I am so happy I started back blogging again, it has been one of my goals since forever, and I've put it off for forever but my friend Tramayne over at Ready Set Charlotte has made me jump into it head first. Head over to her blog to read about her adventures in a new city with her loves. Its such a good read.

Cheers to the weekend!
