My first blog ahh!! For all my new followers who may not know, I love writing! So I'm gonna try to get back into it this year.
It is the end of January, how are your goals going? Your New Year resolutions, are you still fired up? Are you still feeling inspired? I know it's hard to maintain that fire, to keep it lit. We start with this big flame within us, and as the days go by that flame gets smaller and smaller. And we forget what our goals, our resolutions were. Don't let the flame go out.
I came into 2019, on fire. I just left my job back in November. I love the freedom. It still feels unreal. I'm an entrepreneur. I am my own boss. Ah! Its not all pretty. There's days I feel uncertain. Can I really do this? I can. We can! But we have to work hard. Really hard. And have faith that we are exactly where we are supposed to be. Don't compare. Don't let someone else's journey, tell you where you are suppose to be. You are exactly where you are suppose to be. Keep working hard. Even when you dont feel like it. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to be better. Who push you. Who motivate you. Who uplift you. Stop giving your energy away to that toxic person in your life. You are wasting precious time. It's hard. I know. But control that mouth. Control your thoughts. Do not let these distractions, stop you from achieving what God has in store for you.
If January started bad, it's only January! You have plenty of time to get it together!
But start today. Decide that whatever has happened, it's not going to dictate the rest of the year for you. My favorite phrase is "it doesn't rain forever." Hold on to that. And believe it. Because it's true. When it rains, it's an opportunity to grow. Don't let the rain stop you. Fight. Dont let it drain you. If you need a break, take a break. But come back. Don't stay there. Stuck. Because it's one of the worse places to be at. Ask for help, if you need it. Tell a loved one to throw you a rope, a ladder so you can climb out of that hole.
There's hope. I truly, truly believe that. Because I've been there. There's hope.
