When I do a self check and look back at not only my successes, in what I did well, but I like to look at my growth as a person, in my marriage, my business, my family, etc. and really learn from my mistakes. I believe the good and the bad are both beneficial in my walk as a better person. I like the definition of *celebration, It means to give a public acknowledgement, (a significant event or day). I LOVE this because, this is an opportunity for me to look back and see God in not only my mistakes, failures but also my successes.
- Not being able to let go of my Silk Spa Creations Business
- Letting go of “Friends” that were holding me back
- Not staying consistent with my running
-Failures in “Not letting go of my Silk Spa Creations Business” This was really hard for me as I stated in blog post, I wrote on the update of my Silk Spa Creations business. I felt God was telling me to pause the business and He’ll let me know when to come back, I didn’t do that at first. I felt like I was losing a part of myself, because this was a business that I birth, nurtured and watch grow and letting it go was the hard part for me, but I was walking into a whole new season, God was taking me to and I was willing to walk in that, which helped me let go of this business.
-Letting go of “friends” that were holding me back. This was another hard lesson. This particular person, I felt, helped me get over some things (at one point), I was dealing with and I was at the same time helping and it was all give, give and give and nothing in return. This was a hard lesson but another time God really walk me through, which He took care of and as I let Him, God really began to show me this person’s true colors.
-Not staying consistent with my running. My goal in running was to run 3 miles in 18 minutes, my closest running time was 24 minutes I believe and I have TOTALLY stopped running these past couple of months and slowed down a lot. I need to get back hopefully next year and do better.
- I was able to finish my book
- Share my testimony as speaking events
- Getting closer to God and in the Word
- I also started a podcast
-I feel very proud of myself for finishing this book. I was able to write down my goal of finishing this book and God walk me through once again and show me, He’s always there. He’s their blessing me. Thank you Lord!
–Sharing my testimony is what makes me feel alive and fulfilled. God blesses me EVERY TIME. When you press the link, in the beginning of this sentence you can see the testimonies of those who’ve heard me speak and was blessed by it. All Glory goes to God.
-This year I’ve started a 3 year course in Bible College to get my focused on the word, gain more understanding and get closer to God which is always my goal. I want to get closer to God because life likes to throw curve balls and I want to be able to catch them and throw them back! Being able to conquer books of the bible I thought were difficult are now one of my favorites to gain motivation and encouragement from.
-I’ve started a podcast, I’m VERY proud of. I was able to be consistent with it and I’m looking forward to new things with the podcast in 2016 to bless listeners.
