Happy One-Year Blogging Anniversary to ME

cake

This past year, beginning with writing the first post for this blog, I started down the path of a life-changing journey.   In search of peace, love, and happinessI stepped out of my comfort zone to look for ME.

As I walked this path, I paused along the way to

  • Publish a Weekly Blog Post
  • Socialize on Facebook
  • Practice Yoga
  • Attend Aqua Zumba Classes
  • Transition from Windows PC to Apple Mac Software
  • Meditate Daily
  • Express Gratitude
  • Pray and Praise God
  • Make Positive Affirmations
  • Perform Random Acts of Kindness

In 2014, I want to continue to release the “unnecessary burdens” of 

  • Negativity
  • Fear
  • Self-Judgment
  • Anger
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Gossip

These things block ME from being the person God created.

In this second year of blogging, I will write about MY continued journey to create a peaceful, loving, and happy life through:

  • Self-AwarenessAs you become more clear about who you really are you’ll be better able to decide what is best for you – the first time around.”  (Oprah Winfrey)
  • Self-Care – “Our bodies are our gardens to which our wills are gardeners.”  (William Shakespeare)
  • Self-Acceptance – “You don’t need to be accepted by others.  You need to accept yourself. The only person who can pull me down I, myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.”  (C.  JoyBell)

I am a work-in-progress.   I grow stronger and wiser each day.  I no longer regret what happened in the past or fear what may happen in the future; Moment-by-Moment, I choose to live in the Present.  For, this is the only timeframe within MY control.

During this final season of my life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine my life. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR of starting this new venture as a blogger will be my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!

    Congratulations Yvonne! I don’t know how you do it. I said in the beginning I would be right
    behind you on your journey, but you are now light years ahead of me. You are an inspiration
    and I’m glad you are in my life.
