I started this blog about 9 months ago with the intention of inspiring as many people as possible to follow their dreams and be encouraged. As my readers know, since I have stated so in many of my posts, I often share the things that inspire me because like others, I can often use the same encouragement.
This year I’ve undergone so much growth and improvement, as I am sure you have also. And much like you, I still have more room to grow. For example, although I have become a lot less fearful of taking chances, I still have fears about what the future holds for me. Yes, I am optimistic and hopeful, but I’m honest about the fact that sometimes I wish I could control more than what I am able to (control freak much?!… Don’t judge me. Lol)
Seriously, this time of year always gives me that “you have got to get it together” feeling… and I’m not sure if that’s necessarily a good thing. But what I am sure about is that I now know how important it is to trust and respect life’s processes, because no matter how much we may plan and hope and wish and pray for something other than what is with us in the present moment, life will have its way with us and make sure that we learn the lessons that we are meant to learn in this lifetime.
My holiday hopes for myself and everyone who is reading this is that, while moving forward in our journeys, we will be open to trusting life a little bit more, believing in ourselves a little bit more, letting our light shine a little bit more, and have the determination to not let anyone or anything steer us off course from our goals and dreams.
With that being said, Happy Holidays to all!
P.S.- Check out what one of my favorite up and coming hair companies, B Long LLC wishes for everyone this holiday season. BTW, this is the dream that I have worked towards all this time that has required much inspiration on my part. It’s all coming together slowly but surely. 😉
