Well, it’s time to say goodbye to another year. 2017 was a year of learning, growing and chaos. It started off alright…until September and October arrived. 😩 I certainly do NOT wish to see a repeat of what happened this year happen in 2018.
As for the new year, I have one major wish: To have God watch over my family–especially my parents’ and brother’s health. ❤️🙏🏽💙
One thing I will no longer worry about is going out of my way to communicate with someone, who doesn’t reciprocate the communication nor the friendship. Friendship is a two-way street, which means I don’t have time for clique-like or short-term friendships. 👋🏽 🙄
Finally, in 2018, I will focus on myself. The last 2+ years have been really stressful and taxing–especially on me. As a result, I intend to take more time out for myself and will work on completing a few goals on my bucket list. 🙏🏽😃
This quote perfectly sums up how I’ve been feeling for a while now. 🙏🏽☹️
Just saw the film Wonder Woman. As a child, I often watched actress Lynda Carter’s portrayal of this heroic woman, one who epitomized strength, intelligence, compassion and beauty. She was someone I always strived to be. Two years ago and up until now, I found myself in a similar situation–only sometimes I feel I lack one of WW’s best qualities.
Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the present day Wonder Woman was outstanding! She’s been handed the torch and has exemplified everything the original Wonder Woman was…and more.
And kudos to director Patty Jenkins for directing this amazing film, whose character has empowered little girls and adult women everywhere to always follow your dreams, to strive for the best, to not be dependent on others–specifically a man–and to use what you already have to make this a better world for YOUrself and for those you care about.
The added bonus in the film: Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. 😍
The best line in the film: “Be careful in the world of men, Diana, for they do not deserve you.”
Every once in a while, I need to remind myself to stay positive with setting my goals so that I can accomplish my dreams. 🙂
“You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.” ~Ralph Marston
I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, which is probably why I haven’t been getting that much sleep–amongst other things. Recently, I was talking with a good friend of mine. With her advice and encouragement, I believe I can see things much more clearer now. 🙂 #thankyou #wisebeyondheryears #thedreamisstillalive #nexttimeIwilllistentomyintuition
