New Year, New beginnings~

Every year each of us believe we will finally get our well deserved happiness after that “one” thing~.  I will finally be happy I just need that new house, that car, that companion, that job, it is a never-ending drive toward something that is going to bring me a feeling of success in this life which will ultimately lead to that grand feeling of happiness.  The funny thing is, when we finally attain “______” we often times realize it is not what we imagined; it isn’t quite the answer after all; and we shift our thinking to the newest chase.

Enter Holidays~

The holidays meet us with feelings questioning our adequacy; often times we are stressing over the answers of the questions that have yet been asked; by family and friends we seldom see; but no doubt love and care for.

What are we doing now, where are we working; what happened to “him/her”~the ex you don’t want to even think about, why are you still single, when are you getting married, why haven’t you had any more kids; why are you still with “him/her”, where are you living; what are you driving; and then the sizing up  with the other “same aged” cousins, and often rude/passive aggressive questions like; “Oh my gosh your pregnant again; how many kids are you going have.”  or the famous; “weight” remarks for those who are too skinny or too plump.

Gotta be more, gotta get more this year…

2017

Sadly, this is often times when we shift our focus and stop wanting, caring for, and appreciating what we already have.  I am not measured by the things I own; they don’t own me; and neither does another soul; so my focus this year will be more concentrated early on, from the beginning.   Keeping it real, is all about accomplishing what I set out to accomplish and making sure I realize the journey is just as important as the finish line.  How I feel about me this year,  how each moment makes me the person I will be at the end of the year.  We all have the same number of hours, minutes, seconds in the day; we all have the same number of days; yes some of us are taking down some days, weeks, and maybe even months; but we all have the same time; we all share the same calendar; and locally the same season.

season

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time

We all have the same opportunities; hardships, and very different ones in many different ways; the truth is we can ALL obtain success on our own personal level; we can all work hard to obtain many desires; we really can; and if we strive to feel successful; we need to figure out what will really give us those feelings of success; what has given us feelings of success in the past, we need to do more of it this year;  it isn’t just going to come to us; we have to make an intention.

INTENTION~ an AIM a plan; when I go to visit Jesus in adoration; I often make an intention; what my aim is my plan; a wish and plan I have to carry out that plan.   If I am determined to achieve something; I make a promise to follow plan; and it isn’t bargaining with God like a lot of people try to make it out to be.  I don’t walk in and say, “Lord; I need this; and if you give it to me, I will do this….” and intention is talking over your plan with the Lord; and allowing him to talk to you; and you won’t hear a rumbling voice speak back; but doors will open or close; opportunities will come or shift; and always remember the plan; keep true to your word and when you don’t acknowledge it; true forgiveness that is Jesus; he understands; get back on and stay true.
