Well welcome 2019!  So nice to meet you!  I am so happy to finally be in 2019.  I must admit, towards the end of the year I was itching to begin a new slate, a new chapter.  For whatever reason, I finally got to a point mentally where I just needed a huge change – a change of scenery in my life.  I’ve felt stuck and in this rut and it just got to a point where I was just tired of it.  So I promised myself that I would change for the better.  I would grow, learn, live and have tons of fun.  Simply put, that I would just EVOLVE!

Since I am on this journey of evolution, my major desire is how to make life more enjoyable for myself and for those around me.  For a long time I thought all I needed to have was happiness and so therefore I just wanted to be happy.  I fought so hard to be happy and there were days that I was happy but there were also many days where I was not happy.  Happiness is a state of emotion we feel due to the circumstances around us.  It is what we feel when what we currently face is bring us temporary pleasure.  But i soon realized that it can change any minute any day making it TEMPORARY

Happiness is no longer my goal, usefulness is.

Instead, I desire everlasting joy!

I have to fight for what I want in life!

This is my year of manifestation and fulfillment!

I have discovered that in order for me, at this stage of my life, to be joyous, I must be useful.  I need to be useful to myself, to my family, to my friends and to the world.  I’ve also learned that in my usefulness, I will ultimately find happiness, ultimate joy.  I think many times we think we are placed on earth for ourselves.  To do what we like, when we like and how we like.  However, there is more to it.  Yes it is good to do those things that will give us pleasure but there is no everlasting pleasure than being a useful person to the society in which you belong.  

So in 2019, I plan on becoming more intentional in my usefulness to the world around me and to myself.  I hope you plan to join me on this journey.

Here’s to 2019!!!
