Be You in 2018

Be You in 2018

As this year comes to a close, we reflect on what we have and what have gained from the current year.   Does your reflection make you desire change?  Does it make you regret any of your decisions?   We all have those feelings from time to time.  However, what you do with the lessons is how we grow and move forward.   Be you in 2018 and make changes.

This past Summer, I hit the 40’s.  This was embraced, this instead of mourning getting older.  What that means to me is that I have gained a whole lot of knowledge and experiences, as well as I have grown to be a woman of my faith.  I am not a religious person by any means but I am a God Fearing woman at that.   I know my place and I know who my “Tribe” is, don’t by any means do I seek to have everyone’s approval.  There a few select people that I have the desire to have their approval.  To be honest that makes me a very happy woman.

Also, as I have encroached on the 40’s I have gained the desire to be true to myself.  This has been a work in progress over the last 40 years.  I have rid myself of toxic people and I don’t allow anymore toxicity in my life.   That goes for home as well as work.

Be You and No One Else

As we have closed 2017, the whole Country is rife with Sexual Harrassment and unacceptable behavior by several big figures in our Country.  What I teach my children, is that if you feel uncomfortable in any situation stand up for yourself.  Be the voice that said “Hell NO”.  I have learned even in work life even though I am not sexually harassed at work but I have been subject to others getting rewards for something they didn’t earn.

Make No Excuses and take life by the Horns

What I want to tell you, is that you are not alone, you are in charge of your destiny.  No one else can tell you how to feel, act or change.  That is all on you my friends.  I by no means take ANY crap from anyone but I am still very nice and cordial about it.  Why?  Because that is the way I deal.  However, if you push me in a corner the results won’t be to your advantage.  Stand up and fight what you want and feel, the results will be outstanding. Trust me.  Be you and take life by the Horns!!

Happy Holidays,
