I AM THANKFUL FOR ANOTHER YEAR! Last year was filled with ups and downs, tests and triumphs, lessons and growth, loss and victory. Yet, through it all, I made it to another year… and so did you. I am THANKFUL that last year did not signify the last chance, the last opportunity, the last time. And although some people did not make it to 2015 with me, both figuratively and literally, it does not mean it is the last time I will see them or the last time they will impact my life.
If you have not heard or do not know, this life is temporary, but what you do with it is the only thing that lives on forever. You can either live in infamy for wasting the tremendous tools and talents you were blessed with or achieve immortality through great works you accomplish and the lives you touch. I am so THANKFUL that yesterday, yesteryear, was not the last time we will get to make a difference or the last chance we will get to touch another life. You are still here for a purpose and there is a plan for your life. Why not let 2015 be the year you put it all together, break down the barriers, and draw closer and take hold of the dream you envisioned years ago?
How long have you been saying this is going to be my year? Have you previously proclaimed this is the year when this or that is going to happen and work out? Time to let go of the past and move forward! Whatever and whomever did not grow you in 2014, leave it behind. Be THANKFUL that it is a new year and with a new year comes a renewed spirit, renewed energy, renewed focus, renewed excitement, and most importantly, a renewed faith. You may not look new on the outside, but inside, you can feel a change and the weight being lifted. Embrace all that is new and let go the old and the past.

New year, same me, new obstacles, same grind;
Only thing changing with the clock… the time.
I’m on a mission and it started long ago from deep within;
Born of life’s trials and tribulations, only thing I know how to do is climb to the top and claim the win.
Took some L’s in 2014, loss my heart, my way, and my inspiration;
But when they went to Heaven, what they left behind was a new level of determination.
I don’t know about you or what you hope to obtain;
But 2015 is already shaping up for a breakthrough and some monumental gains.
And I’m not just talking about the almighty dollar, although that’ll be nice too;
But I’m talking about spiritual growth, fulfillment of destiny, and impacting lives and so can you.
With each new year is another opportunity to either build or destroy;
And the path you take will ultimately determine if this is the year your overcome and receive an abundance of joy.
Gather the pieces, summon your strength, and prepare for the journey ahead;
It will take more than brawn, plenty of wisdom, patience and courage if you desire to be fed.
Equip yourself with knowledge, determination, and a strong team;
Don’t forget perseverance and dedication coupled with God’s grace is part of the dream.
Love hard, laugh often, and live like never before;
Time waits on no man and this moment is all we have to determine our forever more.
Gained a lot in 2014 and loss even more and despite it all, I still can say I won;
With God on my side, my team with me, and a plan in place, beware 2015 ’cause here I come!
Yesterday is a thing of the past, no looking back;
Today is the beginning of the future and time to get life back on track.
What once was is here no more;
But what can be is what lies in store.
If you keep looking behind, you can never move forward;
But the minute you accept the past, the crisis is over.
A few things for the new year, live, laugh and love;
Take the good with the bad and thank God above.
All of it is a blessing and none of it by accident;
What is meant to be shall, and what isn’t is past tense.
No one ever promised life would be easy or without heartache,
Rest assured you are not the only one to experience loss or been close to the point where you break.
Everything that has happened was purposed and planned specifically for you;
The harder the trial, the bigger the blessing and with 2015 you get to begin anew.
It’s time to let go and let God, stop dwelling on what could have or what should have been;
This is your year of victory, your time to win.
No more second guessing or doubting yourself, no more settling for less;
You’ve fought the battles, withstood the trials, you’ve passed the test.
Take your rightful place, stand tall, and claim your victory;
The best is yet to come and there is no devil in hell that can stop what’s meant to be.
Take solace in knowing that you survived what seemed like the worst;
And despite the hardest of times, God made the last… first.
I can’t promise you won’t experience more trials or tribulations;
but I can guarantee that no matter what, you are equipped for any situation.
This is a new beginning, a fresh start, a chance at redemption;
What was lost will be recovered a hundred-fold, and what is on the way will take you to a higher dimension!
