Ahh, January 2020, the beginning of a new decade. We've made it through the first weekend of the year and midway through the first week. Some a little better than others, unlike myself; I spent the first weekend fighting some nasty little germs.
Sn: The next time I travel, I'm carrying a (small) bottle of Lysol and wearing a mask. I saw a little girl cough that sounded like a grown man without attempting to cover her mouth, people STILL sneezing and coughing in their hands, and yes they were all--never mind, you already know.
OK, moving on...
If you’re new to my blog, WELCOME I’m so glad you stopped by. To all my subscribers--WELCOME BACK! I've missed you dearly. I appreciate all of you for joining me on my first post of the year.
I hope you’re excited about what’s to come in the new year as I am. Now that the champagne has been poured and sipped, and the stroke of midnight's kiss has faded from your lips. It's time to get to work. So many things to accomplish, new experiences and lessons for growth to receive.
I’ll try not to bore you with the same New Year's resolution lists or vision board ideas, although both are really fun—you already know what needs to get done this year and you already know how the vision board works. Besides, there will be plenty of those.
Instead, I want to give you some New Year encouragement!
No matter how afraid we are (yep, myself included) we must go after everything we dare to dream of having. Remember that little kid who used to dream big about everything; the car, where they would live, their career, the house and how much money they would make. What happened to that fearless child within?
Ah-ha, now we see one of the sucky parts of being an adult. WE’VE become too logical, too analytical, too timid. We've let life dictate what we could have and how much we can acquire. All the "Adulting is hard" t-shirts and mugs tell nothing but the absolute truth. Yet, we've let the responsibilities of life diminish our ability to dream. If we lost our ability to dream, then following through is impossible.
Now I'm not saying throw caution to the wind and deal with potential consequences later--although that doesn't sound like a bad idea. Nor am I saying you should shout your ideas or every move at the top of your lungs--that's definitely a bad idea. What I am saying is to only hold space in your mind and dedicate your energy to the thought you've envisioned; it was given to you for a reason.
You know how long you've spent doubting yourself, giving yourself every reason to quit or justifying your procrastination. For too long you've worried about failing. What if you succeeded? What if you put all that energy into chipping away at your goals? Quitely, strategically and with a boldness that scares even you.
Let's all have the audacity to dream bigger! You owe yourself, but most importantly, you're worth having everything you want. Also, you don't have to tell anyone; show your results instead.
3 Things to Remember:
1. Slow progress, is still progress
2. Get and stay out of your own way!
3. You CAN start over, really, it's ok.
So, get busy with those goals! I can’t wait to see what you all accomplish this year. If you haven’t already, click on the subscribe button so you don’t miss a post.

Stay Creatiff, Always and Forever!
