I will be honest and tell you that this was NOT the first word that I chose but when I found it, I knew this had to be it.
In 2016 my word was consistency. Consistency in my relationship with the Divine, my husband, kids, business, workouts and so on. I learned so much with the word consistency rattling in my brain. I knew that daily consistent action would compound to amazing results over time.
MAN did it ever!
Was it easy, hell no. But when I failed, I got back up. We are not wired to be perfect all the time.
So this year I have landed on grit. There are 2 big reasons that I landed on this word.
1. Courage. I still played it safe last year. I stepped out of my comfort zone in a few areas but for the most part kept to my bubble. This blog is part of me stepping into that courage, GRIT. I know I don't have perfect grammar and often misspell a word or two or three, but I am owning me. For better or worse, here I am. COURAGE.
2. Strength of Will. I have this fire that has ignited inside of me. You can say what you will but it is that damn shake of mine that has opened my eyes. It is more than a shake, I know that, but if I could show you, truly show you, the community, financial freedom, encouraging drive that the "shake" has given me...well it has given me the strength of will to change our families legacy. WATCH ME ROAR.
So while we are in the goal-setting season, take a moment and find something to cling to. A word, phrase, scripture, something. Write it on the wall or share it with a friend. Grab something and run towards making 2017 pretty damn amazing!
