Good bye 2016 and hello 2017!
The year 2016 started really rough but I was determined and more focused to fight back and decided to stand up even if it would leave me standing alone. I’m determined to grow my faithI was challenged with the verse, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
My goal that year was to have faith and believing in myself that I’m capable to do something great! I don’t see that courage by looking at others strength but searching from my deep within. Understanding myself better through both negative and positives so I can move faster and achieve my goals. I know for one thing that I cannot achieve what I want with what I don’t have but I can only achieve much higher goals if I focus on what I already have. I made my choice to be who I am, to capture and paint my imagination which illustrates my own unique existence. I have died many times and realized that life is too short to live someone else’s life, wishes, and dreams. I’m driven for a life that has purpose and meaning and that will be the game changer of my career.
I felt that I have grown ten years older this year, becoming wiser, calmer, courageous, and calculated. I was able to appreciate the depression I went through, the long agonizing heartaches, struggles, and to turn it into my greatest strengths because I have survived victorious, despite everything. Sometimes being at a worst case scenario can also be the birthplace of something new and as for me I use my experiences in life as the backbone of my creativity. Life is even more beautiful and I am able to appreciate even more with the few people who really love me, accept me, and support me in whatever and whomever I can be one day. Vulnerability is very powerful when I chose to embrace it fully and that the presence of fear turns into an achievement of courage.
Courage is everything! It all began with faith and I know I’m still progressing each day but I realized one thing that faith begets self confidence and into action of courage and therefore leading me to reaching my goals. The fruit of my intensive labor this year was amazing but I love the person I have become more than my exterior achievements.
My goal for 2017 is to continue building faith that generates courage and I’m going to set my goal higher and challenge myself to love. To love the unlovable and embrace rejections. Fear is lurking around me but I know that courage is doing you wish to achieve in the presence of fear.
I wish you all more love and blessings to whatever you venture for this year 2017!
