Happy 2018, everyone!!!
I am soooo happy to start the New Year! And I’m soooo happy to see 2017 go!
2017 was quite the year for me: a year of great gains but also a year of great losses.
I lost my Grandma.
Launched a children’s book and gained an exciting side-hustle.
Lost my free time.
Gained experience in running a start-up with My Partner-In-Crime.
Gained an amazing group of sisters.
Lost my other Grandmother.
Gained knowledge, insight, and great friends at my 9-to-5…as well as a ridiculous workload.
Nearly lost my mind.
Lost respect for some people.
Left my job and gained my freedom back!
Needless to say, 2017 was stressssful! And though a lot of horrible things happened, I can honestly say that it was good for me to be afflicted (Ps. 119:71).
I came across this post on Instagram in November- at just the right time- and it gave me the confirmation I needed to trust God completely with my situation (thanks, @naturallycole_!)
Indeed, sometimes sh** happens so the shift can happen! I had some not-so-pleasant experiences in 2017, but they had to happen to remind me of my purpose and my potential, and push me to pursue my destiny!
So I thank the sh**-disturbers in my life for shifting me into my purpose– while you were dishing out doo-doo, I was using it as manure!
2017 laid the groundwork for 2018, and this year, I know I’m shifting from STRESS to SUCCESS! Stay tuned…
How do you plan to shift from stress into success in 2018?
