2020. A Year of Light!

Hey there!

It’s me.

Once again trying to do this thing called blogging. And, once again, aware that no one is reading any of this. (Except for maybe my husband. Thanks dear).

This is hard guys. I have not been able to get this blogging thing out of my head. But even still, be that as it may…… if you pay attention to my last post date, it has been a while!

I keep having these moments of inspiration. And then I think about what I am actually going to write, and I get nervous…. my OCD kicks in…. I tell myself, “If it’s not going to be perfect, then don’t do it!”

Ugh!

So, to kick OCD in the face!….. and do something I wouldn’t have done a year ago….. I am writing this post.

We can officially start now. LOL. 

I was having my prayer time today, and I was thinking about blogging. (Go figure). Which made me start thinking about goals. Which… made me start thinking about this upcoming year. (You know…. #NewYearsGoals). 

I don’t know about you, but I feel as though everyone should have a time at the end and beginning of every year, where they take time to reflect on the past year, and look to the new one.

Soooo…. I had a moment of reflection on 2019, but I didn’t stay there long. Because it took me no time at all to remember that 2019 has been a pretty crappy year.

In business and career terms, 2019 was great! And God has greatly blessed us.

But… in almost all things personal… 2019 has….well…. lets just leave it at that. (C’mon, we don’t know each other that well yet).

I told God that I wanted a new start this new year. In every way. I asked him what this year held for us.

I had this phrase come to my head:

2020. A year of light.

And I even felt like, for whatever reason….. I should come on here and share that with you!

*Crickets chirping*

Now, I don’t know if that means anything to you. But… light is the opposite of what 2019 was for me.

I’m hoping, and trusting in the Lord, that He will make all things new. And turn all of the darkness into light.

Even though it is not always easy…. and my EMOTIONS don’t always feel it…. I will choose to trust God, and expect good in my life. Because that’s what His word promises.

Romans 8:31-32

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

So what does a year of light actually mean? Like… in daily life?

I’m not sure.       

Yet.

But I know He will show me. And I’m anxious and excited for the start of a new chapter of

MY LIFE IN SEASON.

Here’s to the NEW YEAR! 2020!

Step #3 of trying to live life one moment at a time.

Is Anyone Listening? I’m trying to start a blog!

Starting A Blog is Awkward

Hello there,

I understand that I am pretty much talking to myself at this point. But, let me tell you something…. let me tell tell you what I am doing at this very moment!

What I am literally doing at this moment is…… I am starting a blog!

I talked to people and I told them, “I am going to start a blog!”

“Yay!” They replied “That’s so cool,” They said. “You definitely should do that,” they encouraged.

So, excited and motivated, I put together a site, (sort of). I made it look all pretty, (at least I think so anyway). And then… I sat there. And I stared at the screen. Then I stared at the wall….. Then something caught my eye; I got distracted and put my computer down.

This happened several times. Until, a few months later… I still had not posted my first blog post. After all that work of getting a website up and running! ( I even got that fancy little lock pad next to my URL, saying that I am secure!)

I kept hesitating as I asked myself: What do I say? Where do I start? What do I talk about? What will people want to read?

I have ideas, but none of them seemed right for a first post.

I’ve heard many people say, “Just start.”

I don’t really know what they meant. But, after too much over-thinking and time-wasting…..I decided that I would literally just start by posting a blog post.

MY VERY FIRST POST!

Even though it’s insignificant and not entertaining at all…. I DID IT!

I spit in the face of awkwardness, and fear, and procrastination to bring you this post.

Is it good? Goodness no.

Am I blabbing? Probably some.

But nonetheless, I am happy to be here. Happy to finally be hitting the “PUBLISH” button. And happy to start this new journey with whoever the heck will take the time to listen to what I have to share.

This is step #1 of trying to live life, one moment at a time.
