Tis the Season of Joy and All Things Glittery!
Season’s Greetings Everyone!
Happy #MotivationMonday! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas Tree 🎄 is finally up; shining with lights, glistening and sparkling brightly with carefully placed ornaments as the main focal point and centerpiece of the living room; the presents are wrapped festively patiently awaiting to be opened, and complimentary colors of red and green is everywhere with the sounds of jingle bells fills the air. Christmas is hands down my favorite time of year! The countdown to opening presents and spending the day cheerfully fellowshipping with family is officially on! We are now just a few short days away from the most joyous day of the year. This holiday season has been wonderful for me, and I hope the same can be said for each of you! Having said it that, I was thinking to myself, it’s not enough to be thankful and grateful in today’s world! Going into a new year and a new decade we have to be motivated to do more! Today, I want speak to that idea of doing more in the new year.
Every year we are asked to think of the less fortunate, and to reflect on the things we are thankful and grateful for in our lives. As we close out this year, and go into a new decade, I would like to encourage you to take time often to think of the less fortunate and reflect on your blessings, more frequently throughout the year. In 2020, and beyond, I want to motivate someone to aspire to their greatness, and inspire many in doing so along the way. There is a lot of darkness in the world today. We have a political system that is falling apart at the seams, there’s more hatred and turmoil in the world than ever before and it’s scary, people are more concerned with likes and clicks rather than how they’re treating each other, and a whole host of issues and problems. I literally could go on and on, but I will spare you. I honestly bring it up because, sometimes I get a glimmer of hope. When I see someone helping another individual, or when I hear an inspiring story. Goodness does exist, but we need more love and to see more of us living and treating each other with respect. I’m honestly exasperated and exhausted with the social media videos of inappropriate acts of desperation for attention from people seeking to be famous, I’m bothered by the mean-spirited way people make-fun-of and bash one another. One of my favorite people in this world is, Mr. Joe Madison of “The Joe Madison Show” on SiriusXM Urban View, and often time he asks the question, “what are you going to do about it?” Next year and in the new decade, I’m going to spread the blessings that I’ve received with those less fortunate than I. I’m going carry a smile and positive energy in every space and place that I go. It’s the only way that I know how to thank God for his many blessings he’s bestowed upon me. It my way of show how grateful and thankful I am each and every day of my life on this earth, and by being a blessing to someone else. This Christmas and holiday season, it is important for me to reflect and understand where I’ve been, and where I’m going so that as I’m blessed I can be a blessing.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you as I close! It has been a sincere blessing this year. Give thanks and take the moments you have on this earth and make the most of it.
Peace and Blessings!
