Can you believe 2014 will be over in less than 24 hours? It’s exciting! I don’t know about you but 2014 was very…eventful, fun, exciting, life-changing, hard, challenging and more! I got rid of a few things, found some things and changed a few things and rediscovered a few things too! Let’s see…. I found out a few things about myself that I never wanted to admit or accept. For one, I have feelings and I get emotional AND THAT’S OKAY! I got rid of past hurts. I realized that hurt, pain and getting offended is inevitable! I cannot avoid my feelings. I have learned to not allow my feelings to run my life! I rediscovered who Cherise is; the part of Cherise that was covered, buried and thrown into an abyss of nothingness. I found her! She is back! The loving, caring, affectionate Cherise! (It's a continuos process.)
2014 has been a year of rediscovery and change for me. What about you? What have you realized about yourself, changed or done differently? I don’t know if you can tell but WE are in this together! As I am constantly telling you to get to know WHO YOU ARE, I am doing the same. It’s a never ending journey. Don’t get discouraged! Isn’t it exciting when you meet someone new? You want to know everything about them! Well! You should get just as excited about getting to know yourself! Believe it or not you are always changing. Things you liked last year, you won’t like this year, AND THAT’S OKAY! Take time to ask yourself questions and figure out what you like, don’t like and what your personality is like! (That was a lot of likes) That’s what I had to do. I had to do a self-check! I had to check myself before I wrecked myself! I was close!... like really close to losing the Cherise that God created me to be! You can’t let the past get in the way of your future! You can’t let boys, family, mistakes, bad habits or your negative thoughts control what you do today or tomorrow or years from now. 2015 is right around the corner and I want you to go out with a BANG! Are there things you need to make right? Need to apologize to a friend/family member? Do you need to apologize to yourself? It is not too late! It took me a whole year and then some to realize things, to change things around, but guess what? I am not done yet! God is not done fixing me up! And God is not done fixing you up either!
Philippians 1:6 says:
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
This just means that God is going to keep on working you! You don’t have to worry, just allow God to help you with whatever it is you need help with. How? It is easy simply ask God for help.
It will be challenging! It might get a little difficult, but remember you can do all things with God! AND, it will be worth it!
It is time to go out with a bang! Get things right, change some things, learn some things and DO SOME THINGS and be confident about ALL that YOU do! You can’t do it alone! God has your back, front and sides! Come on ladies, this is your time to shine and give it your all! Go into 2015 with your head held HIGH AND SHOULDERS BACK!
It is time to go out with a bang!
Don’t forget your confidence!
