I hope 2017 was all you wanted and more. It certainly was an "interesting" year. The weather has been breaking all kinds of records. Those of you in the path of the arctic blast, I hope you are keeping warm and safe. Please reach out and check on neighbors, friends and family, and also be on the lookout for homeless people and animals in this cold weather.
As I mentioned above, 2017 was an "interesting" year. I noticed several situations that caused people to be annoyed, disturbed or downright angry. Some would say these situations were nothing to be so upset about. I think since so many are experiencing heightened emotions, going into a new year is a good time to reevaluate our interactions on a daily basis.
Let's revisit some areas we know, yet may have forgotten or gotten away from.
The Three C's:
As we leave 2017 and walk gently into 2018, let us take time to reflect.
Relax and ease into 2018. If you need help filling your tool belt, please let me know.

A new year is always a time to take stock of how you will take the lessons learned from the previous year to make this your best year ever. Consider the following tips to help you make 2018 a year you determine in your heart that you will SOAR!
1. Renew your mind daily. Commit that you will begin each day with a blank slate and allow God to provide you with the paintbrush to create the life you were destined to live. Get out of your way so you can see your life transformed.
2. Reflect on the things that serve you and can help you go to the next level as you walk in greatness. Evaluate relationships and remember that some people are in your life for a season. As you reflect on where God is taking you; be willing to embrace new people for the new season in your life. Forget those things which are behind you and reach forward with expectancy for the things that are ahead of you.
3. Reposition yourself. Have you been in the same spot in your business and career for too long? Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone because that is when you really grow. Strive to cultivate and build strong relationships, choose to walk in integrity and BE INtentional with your words and actions. Let authenticity radiate in everything you do.
Commit to making 2018 a year where you put the extra with ordinary to have an EXTRAORDINARY year. Happy New Year!!
