Write the Vision
What’s your vision for your life? We have what we say. Repeat, we have what we say. Take it a step further: The Good Book tells us to “write the vision, make it plan so that he that reads it, may run with it.” Run….we have to do some type of activity (aka work) to help our vision come to life. Write your vision on your mirror, create an actual vision board, whatever. Just write it and run with it.
A popular Atlanta DJ used to close her show by saying, “Make your haters your motivators.” I love that phrase so I’m borrowing it. Believe in yourself. Do not let fear, what others think about you or laziness keep you from moving toward the vision. So what if it doesn’t work the first time, second time or on the 100th attempt. Keep trying, stay connected, pivot when needed, learn from mistakes and enjoy the journey.
Make this year a year of achievement. You got this.

Remember January 1st 2020? Similar to most January’s – people were off living their best life- hitting the gym to cement those New Years resolutions, checking out Dave Ramsey’s content around financial freedom, napping, cooking good luck meals such as black eyed peas and removing the final Holiday decorations from doors, windows and fireplaces.
It’s been communicated that my biological mother named me, Monica Marie Garnett. I love being named Monica. It’s not terribly common, I adore how it sounds, and there’s only one way to spell it. Inserting a “k” rather than a “c” is just wrong. : )
My adoptive father didn’t talk much and when he did, it wasn’t conversational. The phrases were typically six words or less: “Let’s go,” “Why is the garage door up,” or “ok.” During family dinners no one spoke. The silence was stifling.

Children in foster care: In its last governing act of the night, the Senate voted to send a bill back to committee that would have updated the state’s adoption laws for the first time in a generation.
We are in full swing of the holiday season and I’m looking forward to the decorations, wintry weather and overall holiday cheer.
