Happy New Year!!!

happy-new-year-2017-balls

I always love whenever it is a new year. For me, it is a way of starting over. It is a new way to leave behind what no longer works, what no longer is helping me grow as a person, and instead, I set life goals in motion for me to reach my dreams in the new coming year. As many people say, it is very easy to fall back into old ways and old habits almost immediately. So, this year, I really wanted to focus more on my relationship with Jesus Christ. It is often very easy to fall away from Him. I took time to write down all the things that I wanted to let go of that happened in 2016, I ripped it up in multiple pieces, and I threw it in my fire place. It was a way for me to mentally and emotionally start all over. I wanted to create a new space in my heart for Jesus Christ and make more time for Him this new year. I just wanted to encourage anyone that may feel like it’s too late to start over – it is definitely not. God bless your new year!
