Happy New Year to all of you warrior women! I’m so happy to share another great beginning to a wonderful New Year! I’ve been working, relaxing, reflecting on and enjoying the life I’ve been given and I’m forever humbled and grateful to share my personal life lessons with all of you. As you know I’m working to expand Authentic Woman as my business resource and as a motivational module to help other women on their journey to becoming the women they are meant to be. So far, so good and I thank each and every one of you for your support.
Life is hard, but, we were never promised a rose garden and by practicing faith, perseverance and intuitive awareness, you will find the strength to endure and conquer every setback living life experiences bring. As a woman of faith, humility and gratitude, I will continue to assist you to fight the good fight.
Whatever you set your mind on doing in 2014, you must be willing to do the work required to achieve it. You are blessed and your purpose becomes a blessing in someone’s life. I want to share this post with you in hopes it resonates and encourages you to share your gifts with the world:
See your life experiences as a stepping stone to becoming a better you. Use your gifts to help another person and be the voice for the voiceless. Walk in faith, humility, reverence and obedience to a higher power and the ‘otherness’ that fuels your spiritual awakenings and guide your steps through troubles, setbacks and struggle.
Be willing to forgive and ask forgiveness for yourself when you’ve been assaulted by lies and slandered with untruths. Be strong in your resolve to become the bigger and better person than the person with unkind intent. Pray for forgiveness for your own ‘ugly’ ways and make a life change.
Recognize that life is a journey and you have to be a willing participant in order to grow and become the person you’ve always wanted to know.
Don’t be defeated by defeat. Use scripture to guide you in your decision-making and walk in truth, humility and gratitude. Know that you are only human with human frailties and don’t wallow in self-pity and regret for past mistakes. Pray to a higher power and let it go. Share your triumphs over adversity with an audience of people whose commonalities you share. Use your voice to uplift and empower the voice of others.
Don’t live a fake life in pretense of being somebody you’re not. Walk in your own truths. Make your own decisions and know that with every choice, comes a consequence make wise choices. Use your words to uplift and inspire and not to humiliate and wound. Words are like bullets that can lead to destruction of a human spirit and end a life. Be kind, humbled and assertive and not aggressive, abrasive and ugly.
Surround yourself with positive people and live your life on purpose. Walk your own path and be yourself. Nobody can know you better than you know yourself, so don’t be fearful of living your truths. Sow seeds of gratitude and give back to those in need and understand the significance. The seeds you sow don’t always come in currency. Offer to babysit for a neighbor while they run errands or grocery shop. Invite a friend out to lunch or pick up the phone to call someone just because.
Be kind to others and you will be rewarded by the universe. Lend a helping hand whenever and wherever the opportunity arises. Make someone’s heart happy and you will experience overwhelming joy in your own heart.
Respect the wisdom of the elders and pay homage to their vast knowledge of life. They have lived and learned valuable lessons from the journey of life on which you only just begun.
Remember the courage of your ancestors and all they endured through the generations. Be the person who walks in humility and grace. Live authentically, spiritually and purposely. Do the work needed to Know your ‘truth’ self. Live your life with confidence. Expect good for your life, be brave and step out in faith.
Happy New Year of good health and prosperity!
