Happy new year friends! How has the first month been for you?
I decided to take some time off and be present for myself.
I feel like I have so much to catch you up on! But again, it’s going to happen in bits. It has been quite a January for me to be honest. For the most part, I was just going through the motions of it all without any enthusiasm. But hey! I made it!
I am super excited about this new month. In 3 days I will be turning a year older!
But before we get ahead of ourselves, here’s what has been on my mind a lot in January:
This January got me all in my feelings. I was a lot more anxious and really did not know what to do. Yes, I constantly reminded myself about not being “anxious about anything but through prayer and supplication make my requests known to God,” but honestly, it wasn’t working for me.
There was a particular week when it was rough, and at the end of the week, I remember telling my friend that I didn’t know how I had made it through the week.
That was a long one.
If there is a year I have purposed to stick to what I feel is good for me especially mentally, this is it.
Sometime last year, I decided to let go of a person I felt was slowing me down and this year, especially January, I knew it may be hard.
But I am super proud of myself and how far I’ve come. I stuck with my decision!
That’s my little victory.
For the first time ever, I worked on creating a vision board for 2021. In fact, I made it my desktop theme so that every time I look at it, I ask myself what progress I have made towards the goals set out.
I don’t want to give myself any pressure, but I will definitely share updates with you 🙂
Do you have a word or phrase that pushes you through each year?
This year, I have two words: Dominate and Anchored.
And yes, that’s what we’re doing this year.
I can’t wait for what this year has in store for me. And I pray that for you, it will be a year of favor, restoration, and clarity. May your heart’s desires be fulfilled.
See You Soon!
