We are exactly one week into the year 2013. That means we have just fifty-one more weeks to go. Around this time is when everyone makes New Year Resolutions and declare what they are going to do in the new year.
No New Year Resolutions for 2013
I stopped making new year resolutions years ago, after realizing I never kept them and was setting myself up for failure. The defeat I would feel after failing to meet lofty, unrealistic new year goals would deflate me. So I stopped making them.
At the beginning of last year, my goal was to continue doing what I love and love what I do, which is helping people realize they are not alone by sharing victorious testimonies through Breathe Again Magazine & Breathe Again Radio Show . After working full time for the past 21 years I walked away from my corporate career to pursue my dreams in business and ministry. ( No, not my dream in Hollywood, although I do think I can sing )
Leaving a steady stream of income is something I’m still getting used to.Being a salaried employee, I was paid if I showed up or not. If I don’t show up as an entrepreneur, I don’t get paid. No paid vacation or paid sick days.
It’s not easy, and far more work than having a 9 to 5, but it is well worth it . To be home when my children get off the bus is priceless.
My baby girl told me she never wants me to go back to work.
2012 was a year of CHANGE for me.
Over the past 6 months, I learned things about myself that even I ,was not aware of. A mixture of good, bad and some ugliness rose to the surface. A form of ugliness that was deeply buried since my childhood reappeared a few months ago, which caused many tears and flashbacks from a very dark place in my life. I will continue to deal with and heal this wounded area inside of me in the upcoming months.
What we don’t deal with will eventually deal with us.
Do you struggle with dealing with certain issues? Do you have a technique that you use to overcome your fear or hesitation? I’d love to hear from you.
Stay Blessed & Happy New Year
