Gratitude is my daily attitude especially in 2019! Being grateful brings me joy and on this last day of 2019 I am reflecting on the past year and decade.
Looking back through the years, there has been some highs and some deep lows, but hey I am alive!!
IMPROVING MY HEALTH IN 2019
Losing my mom to cancer in July 2017 was the lowest blow. It shook me and my family to the core as it all went so fast, but the high point of this deep dark time in my life is that my siblings and I are now closer than ever.
Losing her has also caused me to be living healthier, as I made it a priority to learn all I can about healthy eating; healthy living on a whole. This I did by learning a lot from researching “how to”. Though it still hurts, and I continue to miss her daily, I am grateful that her passing caused me to take steps to be a better and healthier person. This includes:
- scheduling my days and prioritizing so that I do not stress over things that are not important
- eating foods that cause my body to function well and feel good
- getting enough rest
- maintaining healthy relationships
- doing things that I love and enjoy
- developing my spirituality (consciousness)
- operating a business that I really, really love
- mentoring youths
- and much more
Such is life, right? Though I have suffered many low blows that are too much to mention, I have withstood the test of times and now rejoicing because I am alive to tell the tales. If that is not success, then what is?
EXPRESSING MY GRATITUDE
I am using this opportunity to express sincere gratitude to my CREATOR, who is always with me, guiding my steps and EVERYONE who supported me and my business, Mystique Professional Services in any way shape or form over the years.
The list would be too long if I were to start writing names. But I would never be who I am without my family, friends, mentors, teachers, clients and colleagues who assisted or advised me along the way. I am not leaving out the critics, lol sometimes I need them (hope you understand that).
When I took the bold decision to start my business in 2012, I knew what I wanted to do, but later realized I was not fully equipped for the task. I thought my past job experiences and short courses in marketing would be enough, but far from it.
Looking back now I can laugh, because its so funny and strange that though I didn’t have good experience in my field, I always received good reviews from most of the persons I offered Music PR service. I guess I am a natural right? But that isn’t how I wanted to grow my business. Well I kept saying that for years but was too busy to take time out to further educate myself in the area I wanted to serve.
WHY I MADE THE DECISION TO CHANGE
I remember a few years ago someone referred to me as “CLUELESS” 😆😂. Others would have been furious, but for some strange reason I stopped and reflected. Though at the time the sound of that one word cut deep like a knife, I am glad what was meant for evil turned me into the businesswoman I am today.
Oh yes! Because of that remark I began to research and study
like wow to better equip myself with the wisdom, knowledge and understanding I
need to help my clients achieve your goals. In some strange way I have to express
gratitude to the dude too…well let’s hope I will see him again, but I send it
to him mentally…yep!
Because of him I made the all-important change to further educate myself and now I am growing, my business is growing, and I am grateful.
STEPPING INTO 2020 LIKE A BOSS
On this 31st day of December 2019, I sit here writing my thoughts while sipping on a cup of my favourite tea and thinking about this lovely quote, “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one.” ~ Brad Paisley
That is exactly what I will be doing! I have revised my vision board, checked in on my daily and weekly schedule to make sure they are aligned with my visions and goals for the next year and decade. Smiling with gratitude, I visualize myself in the next few hours stepping into 2020 like a boss – great woman of God, woman of compassion, youth mentor, publicist, marketer, entertainment blogger, good Samaritan and a woman who loves myself and everyone unconditionally.
What are your plans? Feel free to share in the comment area.
