Hello and once again, Happy New Year!
How exciting is it to witness a new year as well as a new decade right?! I know many people love to set goals, make resolutions, and make plans and I think that is fantastic! I just recently had a birthday on Jan 6th so I feel like the year has officially started for me as well as the plans that I have for The Healthy Soul-Vibe!
I had a friend of mine ask me what my goals are this year? And honestly, I had not given much thought to it. I always felt like when I made plans and set goals, I either never reach them, or they fall apart by February 1st, or they are so unrealistic that I stress myself out with all of the deadlines and expectations.
So I had to tell her I would get back to her on that questions.
But then I realized, you know what? I am going to let go and just let things flow this year. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot planned this year. But with every detour, set back, and change of plans in everyone’s path, I told myself to just take one day at a time. Enjoy the moments in the day and let God guide my path. There are still going to be some bumps in the road so I don’t think 2019 will be no different then 2020.
I am still in school to finish my BA. I have a rough draft of a book that I am excited to publish. I am getting started on another book for 2021. I plan to travel more this year as I deprived myself last year. I plan to partake in more community service. I want to get my finances back on track for a future EARLY retirement by any means necessary. I want to lose a good 20lbs and manage my health. And most importantly, I want to continue my spiritual walk with God.
So those are my plans if anyone ask. And as I mentioned before, the challenges are already set to come with each one of those plans. Which is why I have decided to just let whatever happen, happen. Control the things that I know I can control. And to manage the outcome as God orders all of my steps, decisions, purpose, and destiny.
I know this all seems so nonchalant, but I am realist. And what I have learned over the years is patience. Patience with my purpose, people, and all things that continue to unfold in my life generally happens in all His timing. So there is no sense in getting bent out of shape about this thing we call LIFE. So I hope whatever you have planned for yourself that you go easy on yourself. I don’t think there is anything wrong with setting high expectation, big dreams and goals, and making plans. Everyone has there own way of setting the tone for the year and as for me I am going to let go, let flow and LET GOD!
