I started my morning-after-Christmas off with a little tradition of mine; I had a slice of my homemade sweet potato pie for breakfast. I wouldn’t normally have dessert for breakfast. For one, I’m totally obsessed. For two, at times, I have no control over my intake–when it comes to cookies, cakes, pies, or chocolate. For some people, the salty snacks do it for them. For me, sweets are my weakness!
I figured, it’s the holiday, and I’ve been good at exercising and eating right throughout the year. Plus, I’ve downed more green juice concoctions than I can count. So one slice of pie (or maybe several slices over the next few days) can’t hurt, right?
But what I really wanted to share was how I literally went to sleep
last night and woke up this morning brand strategizing for #SiNgLeMoMmYFiLeS. I told you in an earlier post that I had the blog on the back-burner a year or so ago. But now that my life has presented the opportunity to do what I love again, with new direction and insight, I’ve been more determined than ever to fully realize this dream of mine:
“Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. It’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I was inspired with an idea that I’ve been working on the past couple of weeks to present to you Single Mommies and Married Mommies who feel single sometimes, in the New Year. The task at hand has been overwhelmingly exciting and I’ve made some outstanding progress! I can’t wait until I’m able to introduce it to all of you!
As we head into 2016, I want to URGE you to step out on faith this time, set goals and pursue them with all of your might, and most importantly, do not allow fear to prevent you from following your dreams…you never know where they might take you!
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Until next time Mommies,
