UNWINDING 2020, THE NEW YEAR COUNTDOWN 2
It's the end of the year 2020 and I cannot contain my joy.
Just two days to go for this particular year I can't fully express how I feel. I am thankful for God's grace and unending mercies over our lives. I have long zoned out of watching the news and not being so active on social media platforms. I decided that the fear, the horror, and all negative narratives being pushed was not for me.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind". 2Timothy 1:7 KJV
So whatever they say about 2021, it will be good for us and we will be supernaturally strengthened.
I would like to share a few tips on what kept me going this year; I had a coach. This didn't have to be one I paid for. I had coaches on a different aspect of their lives. Especially one's I followed on social media platforms that kept me powered up, with knowledge and made me better.
I advise you get a mentor if you do not already have one you can't keep going on trial and error, it will wear you out eventually, so get a mentor who trains and guide you, reducing mistakes and keeping you abreast and in the know.
I had some awesome friends this year too. We are social beings and the need for interaction cannot be overemphasized. Friendships keep you sane and play a vital role in a balanced life. I hear people complain sometimes of how badly they have been hurt or taken for granted by friends and I always have this to say "just be good yourself because like begets like".
Okuuuuuur! friends are a good energy boost. This is what you need to keep ideas going, to feel some type of validation and acknowledgment you are doing something good.
The cheerleaders. Creatives, in particular, need this, in short, everyone does. Cheerleaders are the oil that keeps our engines running. Waking up to our friends and family turn cheerleader's comments, mentions, referrals, or even compliments give us that push. I recommend that you get an accountability partner. There are days you got no zeal no drive, you are just lost, and no direction. You need your accountability partner to find you, to give you that push. And if you are falling off course you know they are there to catch you and keep you from falling.
Get you a coach, a mentor, a friend, a cheerleader, an accountability partner, and also get ready to be any of these to other people as well because we are all we have.
We are finishing 2020 strong in Jesus name. Any of my hanging blessings in 2020 locate me. Oya pray it for yourself too. I am still waiting on my last minute miracles. #Theeleventhhourmoracle
Have a great new year ahead Tribe.
See you in 2021.
