Let’s make a toast for the past, present, and future… We may not be where we want and may not have achieved what we have wanted to by now but that’s not to say we are not SCHOOLIN’ LIFE…
This fun, lighthearted song portrays the confidence needed to be successful (and, yes, I highly support getting a degree). But who’s to say you can’t be successful without one, you are the shot caller for your life, but are you necessarily making the right decisions to get to where you want to be?
HAHAHA So it’s back to the basics —-> New Year, New Expectations, New Opportunities, New Successes and New Failures!!!
What are you going to do with this new year filled with endless opportunities to make your life better?
People you cannot get wrapped up in what everyone else thinks about you or is saying about you. You have to start living your life for yourself in accordance with God’s standards and the people that are important to you (meaning doing right by and for your children).
That’s why I say if New Year, New Me is the expression of your choice for 2016 then let it be YOUR choice!!! There is nothing wrong with opening your mind up to new experiences and going to different places, that is when we truly start to develop and grow from our surroundings. When we do not experience new things and learn new things we tend to be domicile. When we think of being domicile we think of being at home in PJs, sitting on the sofa, changing channels, challenging nothing but our jaw muscles and thumb’s range of motion.
Even the judgmental ones that have criticized people for saying “New Year, New Me” have improved in some way or form to better themselves and their situation. So instead of criticizing maybe it is time to start being a role model, extending a helping hand, and uplifting others around us!
Everyone has different ways to setting goals. I like to write my goals down or either I am impromptu and spontaneously decide it is time for something new. But I know there are some people out there who are different. Maybe you should invest in a 2016 Daily Planner (they have really cute ones at Target) and start organizing your life. This is for your eyes only, everyone does not need to know what you are working on (why? so they can criticize you and then play copycat)… No, No, No!!!! It is time to grow up and know who is for you and what is for you, aside from God Almighty. The only way we know that is by praying and letting the Holy Spirit guide our lives. You do not need to be praised by everyone on social media to know that you are someone special and that you can be successful. It is none of their business. It is time to start believing in God and yourself!
Let’s make a bet… Let’s write down our goals via pen and paper, daily planner, electronic calendar, Microsoft Word, etc. and put it somewhere we can see it everyday without someone else seeing it (for women, maybe your wallet, purse, or inside of your closet, or save it on the desktop of your computer… for men the same). This way you will be constantly reminded of the goals that you set for yourself and cross them out when you accomplish them. When something else comes up and forces you to have to push your goals back a little, do not get discouraged. Simply work harder.
A really great quote I heard off of a movie this weekend was “If you have energy left to swim back to shore that means you did not swim hard enough away from shore.” It is your life, your future, your New Year. If the waves get tough pray; pray all the time not just when you need words of encouragement!!!
I plan to blog it out this year, in hopes to touch and change hearts all over the world for the purpose of edifying the body of Christ and uplifting others. I also plan to attempt to read the all the way through the Bible with a simple schedule found through Google search engine.

I will not reveal to you any of the other goals I have set for myself, because that is between God and me. I can only pray and begin my journey in hopes to achieve them before 2016 is over.
Be all that you can be and less of what you desire to be, so that you can become what you desired to be. Meaning you have to put your plans into action to officially start your self improvement journey, you cannot just keep wishing on a star. You are the only person holding yourself back!
For all the kids/teenagers now keep believing in yourself you can be whatever you want to be! (cliche but true) For all the grown ups who lost yourself, now its time to find yourself and start believing in yourself. You can still be what you want to be, the younger generations need us to be their role models!
