Happy New Year 2018!!!! I hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday season!!!
As I was reflecting on the year past, I recall posting this prayer in the beginning of 2017…God truly delivered and went beyond my expectations in 2017

deargod2017

 

My lack was turned into plenty, as God opened new doors and gave way to new opportunities…

2017 was the year of clarity for me as a person and where I stand in my relationship with God…as I surrendered more and more of my life to him, I had certainty because of the Faith I had in him…

When I say I went through it, I am not joking, oh boy was I put through the wringer…But God!!!

He turned every single one of those tests into testimonies…

He worked big miracles in my life and I truly believe HE IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES…

And of course there was a lot of growth and change in my life…

Because of the lessons learnt in 2017 I’m stepping boldly into 2018 with HOPE and FAITH in God’s promises for my life.

Without God, Hope is NOTHING but wishful thinking that our expectations and desires will come to pass…with God Hope is having confident assurance and trust in his promises for our lives.

Romans 8:24-25 (AMP)

24 For in this hope we were saved [by faith]. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure.

Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)

11 Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].

I am confident and have HOPE and FAITH because, God is not a man that he should lie (Numbers 23 : 19) therefore I know, the word God has spoken unto my life shall not return void but will accomplish what God desires and achieve the purpose for which he sent it. (Isaiah 55 : 11)

Happy New Year once again, and I pray that God blesses your 2018 abundantly, beyond your expectations. That you may testify of the goodness of the Lord AMEN

My 2016 New Year Intentions

NewYear2016

Hey loves, Happy New Year 2016!!! I know I’m late on this but…better late than never, right!!! I hope ya’ll had a wonderful Holiday Season and are having a beautiful year so far :)

For the first post of the year, I’d love to share with you my New Year Intentions and Themes. Usually I don’t set New Year Resolutions but this year there are a few things I’d love to focus on.

1. SELF LOVE

It took me a while for me to realize that I don’t love myself enough! Last year I got this lightbulb moment and I was like WOW I need to take much better care of myself and my needs. It’s so ingrained in us to be selfless and to put everyone else first before we even consider our own needs, something that may results in self neglect and ultimately unhappiness among other issues. When you give, give, give at the expense of your own needs and desires….you will end up empty and bitter, it’s just that simple. So I started on this journey of Self Love and it’s quite a new way of thinking for me…I vow, to be more kind to myself, to accept myself with my flaws and perfect imperfections, to put my needs and desires first, to make myself my own priority, to be authentic, to use my voice and to learn more about myself. At the end of the day we come to the world alone and we leave alone and the only person we ultimately have to answer to is ourselves and God.

“The only person you will live your entire life with is yourself.”

-Sonia Friedman

2. GRATITUDE

In life most of us are either filled with worry for the future or are stuck in the past, or a combination of both. But if we really want to live life to the fullest we need to stay in the present moment and ignore all the voices in our own head. This year I really want to practice being grateful for every little thing in my life…and especially for being alive. Being grateful and trusting helps us receive the blessings we truly deserve. There is this quote from Louise Hay that I absolutely love, that sums it up Perfectly. I couldn’t of said it any better.

“Our breath is the most precious substance in our lives and yet we totally take it for granted when we exhale that our next breath will be there. If we did not take another breath, we wouldn’t last three minutes. Now if the Power that created us has given us enough breath to last for as long as we shall live, can we not trust that everything else we need will also be supplied?”

- Louise Hay

3. LIMITLESS GROWTH

In order to grow in any area of our lives we need to to learn to embrace change. Sometimes change can be painful but it’s absolutely necessary if we want to blossom and live the life that we are meant to live. This year I want to embrace all the changes, transformations and transitions in my life. I also want to work on all the areas in my life that need to be polished. I want to do the inner work required for me to grow. I want to work on my Mental Health, my Emotional Health, my Physical Health and my Spiritual Journey. I know this will take time but I’m in this for the long haul, there are no deadlines…any step I make is one less step to being stagnant.

“To become a butterfly, metamorphosis is necessary. If the caterpillar never went through this process of change, it would never achieve it’s great destiny and become its most glorious self. We can reach our great destinies by changing what needs to be changed.”

- Michelle “Chaella” Boddie

4. Being the best version of myself.

This is my tagline and it’s something I strongly believe in…that at any point in time, no matter what our circumstances are… as long as we are still alive we can make a change. We may not be where we want to be but we are HERE and that’s the most important thing because it means we still have a chance to be the person we are meant to be and to fulfil our purpose. I also believe that God uniquely designed each and everyone one of us to fulfil a purpose and fully accepting our unique selves means we have a better chance of succeeding at being ourselves than at being a copy of anybody else.

“Remember that you were born with a divine purpose and destiny that only you can fulfil. Be your authentic self if you want to fulfil that dream that sleeps within your soul”

Glitz and Glam New Year 2013

 

New Years Eve is that one night of the year you can really go out  in terms of glitter, glam, sequins, metallics, fur and all things shiny that girls love. So don’t be afraid to experiment with various types of shiny pieces and incorporate them into your style. Whether its shoes, clothes or accessories just don’t go crazy and over do it. Sometimes less is really more and being subtle about your glitz can really brings out the sophistication factor. This is also the time to try to pull off that bold funky hair style that you’ve been dying to try but won’t because you feel it is not work friendly.
