looking back and reaching forward

For me, 2017 was a year of ups, downs, and everything in between. Did I reach the goals that I set at the beginning of 2017? No, and that’s okay.
I had the pleasure of entering a beauty pageant for blind women, which was way out of my comfort zone. However, by taking that chance, I gave myself the opportunity to expand my social circle, increase my confidence, and have some fun all at the same time. I made a new friend who lived in the same small town as me for years, but I was too shy to get to know people.
Also, I pushed past some of my insecurities and increased my online presence. I gained clarity around what I wanted in my life and my business.
Also, I released a lot of stuck emotions that were holding me back. No, I did not reach my goals in 2017, but I built some really strong foundations that will help me to reach my goals in 2018.
If you didn’t reach your 2017 goals and intentions, have compassion for yourself. Perhaps you needed to accomplish some things before you could achieve your goals. Maybe those goals and intentions weren’t meant for you in the first place because you were meant to receive something even better. Either way, here’s to an amazing and blessed 2018!

positive thinking:Is it worth it?

If you were to turn on a news broadcast, you would probably find many reasons to think negative thoughts. However, if you were to change your perception just a little bit, you might just find reasons to be positive.

Also, if you walked into almost any establishment and eavesdropped for just a minute, you’d most likely hear a series of complaints. Since the world seems to be so full of negativity, it needs our positive energy. There are several benefits to adopting a more positive outlook.

When we are focused on the positive, we have more energy to create the things we want instead of more of the same. We also feel happier, are more pleasant to be around, and actually improve your health. Positive thinking also focuses our attention in the present because we are not fearing the future or despairing over the past. I know it may seem difficult at times, but try replacing those negative thoughts with positive ones. It may take a little time, but you’ll begin to notice a shift, and others will be sure to notice, too!
