Well here we are… at the end of another year. In just a couple of week’s give or take we will be welcoming the new year. You know.. “new year, new you” type of thing.
Usually, I’m down for the “New Me” type thing but this year I’m happy to say new year same me…with a few minor changes.
I’m excited about the growth that took place in 2017. This year stretched me. And I don’t know about you but the biggest thing I had to face was myself.
This year taught me to get out of my OWN way and to stop making excuses for people.
This year I faced my fears… I faced the things I didn’t like about me and dealt with my insecurities.
That my friend is the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do. Is face yourself.
Face the things that you allow to make you feel…..
They make you feel….
For lack of better words… less than your best.
Mannnn i’m telling you this year taught me to let go of some stuff. I never realized how I allowed past things to hold me captive.
Not only that but I learned that my expectations for me and my life are ok and that I make the rules.
I’ve learned to be me… no matter what. When i began to accept what makes me, me and who I really am.. things changed.
The moment i stopped rearranging my standards and how i wanted my life to be to meet the needs of how others felt it should be or go… Life got sweeter.
Once I released the things that held me captive things started to work in my favor.
When I say GOD showed up and showed out this year. That’s an understatement…
BRIGGade… I’m not sure what this year has looked like for you, what you’ve struggled with, what you’ve overcome and what lies ahead of you…
Before going unto 2018… I strongly suggest you address the things that are ultimately holding you back from being the BEST VERSION OF YOU!
Make a vow to yourself that you’re going to leave 2017 and alll the past weight that you’ve been carrying in 2017.
Things to leave in 2017
- Your Past – I see tooo many people males and females still tripping over that old thing. If you’ve moved on, MOVE ON! No need to call your ex’s family to check on them HE/SHE are good. God closes doors for a reason. It’s time you learned that.
- Negative Vibes- It’s time to stop dwelling on the things that didn’t work out and speaking negatively about our lives. What you Speak you ultimately Create.
- Caring about what other people think- We’re all grown. We have one person to please and that’s the man upstairs. What other people think of you is none of your business.
- Self Doubt- for far too long you’ve doubted yourself. Remember what you think about you bring about. So if you doubt yourself you’ll never be able to do it. But if you believe that you can do all things… everything you touch will prosper.
I mean i could go on but those are the top Four things we need to leave in 2017.
2018 is the year of the Butterfly…
You should be focusing on being the best YOU, you can be… Positive thoughts, Building your relationship with God, reaching your goals and helping motivate and pull the next Queen/King through.
In order for 2018 to be your year…. you have to truly let go of your past… as well as, spread positive vibes no matter what. Even if you aren’t where you want to be WAIT WELL! Your time is coming… Celebrate others as God moves them to the next level.
I hope the rest of 2017 is everything you need it to be!
