This is a special year for me.
Not because it marks any kind of special milestone relative to my life. Not because I’ve got something big to announce. Not because I know anything for certain.
For me, I sincerely, absolutely, wholeheartedly feel like this will be the most driven, most focused, most successful year of my life. It won’t be due to happenstance or through a surprise. It will be because I’ve already been planting seeds. And I’m pretty excited to see things grow.
Perhaps it’s just positive self-talk, but I think that’s part of watering that which was planted. It’s taken me a long time to realize that it’s not only ‘okay’ to speak confidently, but it’s necessary. It’s one thing to hear someone else encouraging you with positive affirmations – and another when it’s your own voice cheering you on and encouraging you through adversity. You really do need to believe in your own attirbutes – and that you have something valuable to contribute to the world.
I’ve had a package of seeds sitting on my proverbial shelf since I was a boy. I’m a chronic introvert – and I know for certain, I’ve been too fearful of taking the chance to see what would happen if I planted them. But – now it’s too late to stop, because I’ve already put them in the ground. Ho-boy!
I am excited – and I am also encouraged seeing other people around me looking to take strides in their own lives. I am believing that the 2020’s are going to be the best years of my life. I want to wish everyone in my circle of readers and friends a year of blessing, health and success in 2020. Feel free to connect / reconnect – another thing I want to see grow is my personal community!
