As I am reflecting on 2020, I realized that I had all of the answers I needed inside of me the entire time. There was(is) always an inner voice talking directly to me, but I was too busy listening to other people and seeking their advice (which often conflicted). I caused unnecessary stress and delays that could have been avoided. I Just couldn’t hear the inner voice. Actually, I wasn’t always listening for Him.
There is an inner voice, a strong desire, a feeling you can’t quite understand that is talking to you right now. You have some crazy idea that keeps coming up. You really want to take a step in becoming you. Is it a business owner? Career move? Improve your credit? Purchase a house? Start a family?
As I sit here creating my 2021 goals, I paused to reflect on all that I did and did not accomplish in 2020. All the prophets and Bible scholars proclaimed it would be the year of double blessings and overflow blah blah blah. But for me, 2020 was the year of vision and focus. I discovered I had a lot more time to think, plan, and organize my life. I spent time discovering what truly brought joy into Shana’s life. The things and people that did not add value, let’s say didn’t make it to 2021.
I can SEE goals that I had set for myself that I did NOT meet. If I’m honest, I didn’t even come close to some but there were several that I exceeded.
The goals that I met were all the ones that didn’t quite make sense to me but I had a “feeling” that I couldn’t explain or forget. When I tried to focus on other areas, it plainly failed. As my mind shifted to things I was hearing, I couldn’t let them go. I refocused my mind, time and energy on completing them. And, guess what? The gap of uncertainty was filled with more joy and happiness than I could have imagined.
2021 I will continue my journey- I am Unapologetically Me. I have set several SMART goals to ensure I have joy in the most important aspects of my life- Spiritual, Family, Career, Financial, Mental, Health, and Physical. I have surrounded myself with a circle of amazing, driven and supportive friends that will hold me accountable to ME.
There is an inner voice that is pushing you. That inner voice is the voice of God Almighty. He will guide you every step of the way. Do it! Do it afraid! Do it uncertain! Just Do it! You are not alone. For those of you that need help figuring out exactly what “it” is, where should I start, or just need an advocate to help you reach your potential, let’s connect!
