2017 | Happy New Years!!!
2017!!! Where did 2016 go?!? Well, for me, all is well. Good stuff happened, not so good stuff happened. That’s what happens in life. I think it’s better to be on this side of the living than the other. So what New Year’s resolution do you have? What shall I list on this blog? None. I never really been the type to have to wait for a New Year to make a stronger commitment. I fail all year. I succeed all year. The only real fail is when you don’t try.
What I will talk about are these things:
My family is well. Good health, mind and spirit. Most are still with us, some…not. We will all end up in the same place so I try to learn, appreciate and make proud the ones paved the way for me.
Second, there are several things I’d like to commit to in 2017…Personally, professionally, spiritually, physically, mentally…all of the above. And that’s exactly what I’m going to doI’m not listing or sharing all of them, but they are there. You have your new commitments, dedications and concepts, and I hope you progress in all of them. Let’s all have a great year regardless of what happens.
Sometime in late 2015 I expressed that while others where reflecting on what happened in 2015, that I was going to share my expectations of 2016. Specifically, where I was going. Didn’t know how I was getting there, nor the parameters around it. Well, the truth is, and my last point , is that simply my God is Awesome. He can do anything and make a way out of no way. I knew I wanted to see more than what I saw everyday in Columbia and I knew that I wanted to travel and see the world. He made it happen first in 2014 with Mexico for the wedding of Dominic McKelvey of FOKAS Photography (This dude is an awesome friend, husband and photographer. Been rockin’ since 2009!!). That was my first taste of the destination wedding experience. Fast forward to 2016 and Dominican Republic was added to the list. The takeaway I arrived at was “…seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Then, I learned that for me, things are great, but I’d rather spend my money on experiences.
So with that, Happy New Year’s to you all!! I know I’m super excited about a lot of things, and whether they happen in 2017 or not, making a decision, coming up with a plan and execution will get us so much farther than complaining, waiting and procrastinating.
