Fruitful Year, I Wish You...

Happy New Year Folks,

I really did plan to come back before the year 2015 ran out as evidenced by my draft folder (not like you can see it), but I had family over and attending events and church and it all just got busy. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and started the new year filled with hope and expectations for the year ahead.

After a short stint of depression as December began, that I quickly snapped out of, I began my New Year so joyful. Duh! What do I have to be depressed about? Life although messed up sometimes, is filled with love, hope, joy, peace, food, people, movies, music, kisses and babies. I sound bipolar but I tell you, life is great, we just have to choose to see it and I have so chosen.

I'm so excited for 2016, you should see my list - it's loooonngg!!!. I'll share one from every topic...

  • Lose 20 pounds in 2016. Meaning lose half a pound a week. This will involve going to the gym 3 times a week when not fasting. Making sure that 50% of each meal is filled with vegetables and protein.
  • Begin Young Women Program - I'll tell you about this later.
  • Complete my Thesis & Graduate - This would imply that I have started writing it but I will and I will finish it.
  • Travel to 4 New States and 2 New Countries.
  • Begin a Job/Career - Can someone say Amen!
  • Seek out mentors in the areas of my life I want to grow.
Now on to the Young Women Program. So, if you have read this blog for any length of time then you know, I have been through, and after a lot of prodding by God and I mean a lot of prodding, I have decided to share some of that experience. I haven't quite decided what it should be like, but I am sure God will give me the directions I need. So far, I know I will start at my church, I already have a partner and its from ages 12-22. Any ideas? I'm yet to come up with a name.

In other news, I was introduced to someone who visited the church and I thought that was unfair, because I reckon that before he got a chance to meet me, he had a chance to look around and see all the beautiful girls at my church (and there are a lot of them, I can't even front) and may have wanted any of them and now he's forced to talk to me, even though I might not be his type/desire. Parents/family make this whole thing difficult I tell you. He may have very well liked me on his own though, but I guess we will never know either ways.

I gave up social media and I miss it. It's so weird how dependent one get's on it. Maybe it will make me write more. It's definitely made me watch TV/movies more already. P.s maybe movies aren't so bad after all.

Have I mentioned that there is something so romantic about cooking? I don't do it a lot anymore and especially in my quest to lose weight I often do just the same things, but even at that I am always filled with romance and I find it oddly therapeutic. Today, I watched "Burnt" and I just wanted to quit school and head to Paris to become a Chef. Maybe in another life. 

In this life, I am determined and hopeful and prayerful that this year will be a fruitful one in every area and I do mean every area. 

I think that's it for tonight. We will talk soon.
