You see, last year I was investing in myself by getting another Master’s degree, deepening my spiritual life and focusing on health and wellness. I had goals last year that I set for myself and I am proud to say that I reach every goal even higher than I dreamed I would.
I am in a totally different place in my life this year than I was last year which brings me to the title that I will call this year, “The Great Coming Together”. Yes, this year I will not set any resolutions to remove bad habits from my life. I will not attempt to get a better job, move to a different city, restore my finances or lose weight and get healthier. I have reached all those goals and more.
This year is the year where I pull all areas of my life together to live in a higher state of joy and contentedness. I will bring my new career, degree, home, city, spiritual awareness all together to live the full life that I believe I was born to live.
As we approach the second semester of school, you to will find yourself in a place where you can claim this year as your “Great Coming Together”. All of the things that you have learned and strived for up to this point will come together for you in a way that reveals a stronger and wiser person. You will be in the position (after a lot of hard work) to present to the world a young man or women with a high school degree ready to move onto bigger and greater things!
You see, when things ‘come together’ it puts many separate parts into one whole. We are stronger living whole lives than living broken lives. We all walk this journey of life at a different pace, so maybe you will not be living a year of 'coming together' of your hard work, but instead you are recognizing the changes that you need to make in your life.
Maybe you will be removing things that need to be removed from your life and/or bringing in needed changes. Where ever you find yourself this new year, remember that you have control over your life's direction. It all lies in the choices that we make. You can choose things that are good for you or you can choose to live a life of destructive behavior.
Making changes in your life can feel very scary. But do you know what is even scarier? Regrets. Take time to look around you and decide where you want to be at the end of this year. Then make a game plan, set goals and work to get there. If you stick to your plan and work hard, anything is possible. I will be here to guide you and cheer you all along the way!
Happy New Year to all my students and friends. May this be your best year ever!
God Bless, Ms. B.
