Confirmation is all around you!
That is the sentiment that came to mind when I opened my Christmas gift from my cousin/sister-friend. Her purchase was a silver charm bracelet that included 4 charms: a green gemstone, a 1st place ribbon, a star, and a tortoise.
I immediately loved the present because it was simple and classy, but upon further reflection I realized the weight attached to this dainty surprise. It wasn’t a simple bracelet with trinkets. No this wrist ornament was confirmation of the journey I have been on. It was proof that I was on the right track and just needed to keep trudging along. As if to place an exclamation to this point, the card that the bracelet was attached to reads:
Determined ~ Slow and steady wins the race
How timely of a message, as I get ready to close out 2014, in anticipation of 2015 and all of its expected blessings. I forecast that 2015 is going to be a great year, one of abundance. However, I don’t intend for the bounty to just fall into my lap. On the contrary, I am determined to be steadfast and persistently consistent in manifesting all of my dreams!
Although I was already on the course, it’s nice to receive a surprise reminder that the race is not won by strength or speed, but by endurance and an unwavering faith – that the impossibilities are all possible, in due time.
So I shall continue to run my race knowing that I have found my stride and I am in my season, so I shall reap my due harvest!
As we approach the New Year, it is commonplace for people to choose New Year’s Resolutions. I, however, tend not to set resolutions. I figure, why wait for the New Year.
- Why not choose to live a life where you become determined to go after all that you desire and aspire to do and be?
- Why not wake up every day being firm in your convictions to make your fantasies, a reality?
Have you ever wondered, to yourself, what is stopping you from living out your dreams?
I hope you decide to name the obstacle and then jump over it, get around it, or go through it – but whatever you do – keep going! Remember, slow and steady wins the race!
And when we look back at this post, at some later date in the future, we can be glad that we decided to get started AND that we kept moving!
To you and yours… I wish you a happy holiday season and a DREAM Changing NEW YEAR!
