Happy New Year! I know I am a little (ok, maybe a lot) late in posting but I am back on track.
I have a confession to make. I have a problem of comparing myself to others and negative self talk. I won’t blame social media or society. I am going to take full responsibility of the choices I make. I feel like I am not good enough to succeed in anything or don’t have the resources or tools to do so.
2017 was a year of learning a lot about lessons, blessings and myself. On New Years Eve, hubby and I went to watch night service and the message was being free in 2018. I was so motivated. I even wrote down my goals! But reality set in. I decided to really start the year in February (LOL). But God gave me an amazing Husband that had to hold up the mirror and ask, "What is stopping you"? "Why are you doing this to yourself"?
It is very difficult to look at your own mistakes and fix them. You’d rather pretend they don’t exist and move on to the next but that never works out. Ever.
Another reason for my much-needed absence is figuring out what I want StolenQueens to be. I am more than just a woman of God. I am considered a millennial, and a mother. I want to expand my audience and touch the lives of others through my writing.
There are so many things I want to accomplish in 2018 individually and collectively with my hubby. Self doubt and negativity is going to try and make its way through but it is up to ME to allow it to manifest.
God says in his Word:
Proverbs 16:3 (NLT)
Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed
So my new motto(and verse; see above) of this year:
Write. Plan. Pray.
Write your goals down, your thoughts, feelings anything that comes to mind.
Create a plan of attack. How are you going to accomplish those goals? Are they realistic?
There is power in prayer. If we do not ask, we will not receive. God’s timing is perfect and we have to trust the process.
In order to succeed, you have to fail. No one just becomes successful overnight. Whatever your calling in life is, seek God first and the rest will come.
In 2018, we are taking everything that belongs to us.
