Reflections. 2017 is coming to an end… quickly. We only have a little bit of time before 2018 gets here… and this is a good time to reflect on our year. If you haven’t been reflecting, I would definitely encourage you to do so. Just make sure that you’re doing it from a healthy place and not one of condemnation. We don’t live in condemnation.
As I look back over 2017, I can definitely say that I have grown. Let’s talk about my spiritual growth first. This year, I have really learned that my walk with God is just that: MY walk… with GOD. No other parties have the right to tell me how to carry out that walk. I still welcome and appreciate godly counsel, but I no longer base my life’s decisions on how other people will react to what I decide to do. All there has ever been in my life is me and God. I was with God before I came here. I came here with God. I’m walking through this life with God. At the end, I’ll be with God forever… which isn’t a change, because I’ve always been with God. I’ve always been a thought in God’s mind. Everyone and everything I have run across and will run across in this life is temporary. No one I have in my life now will always be there, even if they have always been here up until this point. The only thing that is forever is my walk with God. From beginning to end, that’s the one thing in my life that will not ever come to an end. It’s the only thing that never began. It has always just been. Therefore, I have learned to regard that relationship above all others. It has changed so much about how I live my life. It has caused me to dig deeper. It has caused me to let some people go. It has caused me to focus more on what God has given me to do. It’s the best lesson I’ve learned all year, and perhaps all my life.
My business has grown tremendously this year. I started this podcast, I released an updated edition of my book, AND I released another book. I’m so excited about the growth I have seen, and I know that it’s only the beginning.
Personally, I’ve grown in soooooo many ways. I’m not ready to talk about them yet, but just know that your girl is over here growing up something!
I hope you will take a moment and reflect. Hindsight is always 20/20, and that’s a good thing. Why? Because somethings you see with your hindsight are gonna come up again… and when they do, you’ll know exactly what to do.
I’d love to hear about your reflections, so feel free to share with me! I’d love to read about how much you’ve grown!
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
