18 Goals for 2018

Happy New Year to all of my family, friends, and followers! I hope you had a great 2017. I know that I accomplished so much more than I thought that I would. So many goals were crushed, so many friends made, and so many miles on my feet.

I have been wanting to post my 18 Goals for 2018, but between work, family, and life, things have been busy.  I wasn’t able to post my 2018 Goals on January 1st, so today is a good day to put them out there.  There are so many things that I would like to see happen for myself, family, and friends, but these are the 18 goals that I MUST accomplish for myself.

  1.  Train for a Marathon;
  2.  Train for an Ultra;
  3.  Get my Personal Trainer Certification;
  4.  Get my Running Coach Certification;
  5.  Start a Kid Running Club at JEA (Parents can participate too);
  6.  Help at Least 1 Person on Their Health Fitness Journey;
  7.  Get Back into Church and The Word;
  8.  Take a Girls’ Weekend Trip with CJ & Ry;
  9.  Start a Book Club for CJ and Her Friends;
  10.  Lower my Body Fat Percentage;
  11.  Tone Up Some Flab;
  12.  Hand Write 1 Letter a Month to a Family Member or Friend;
  13.  Visit my Relatives More Often;
  14.  Organize a Group Volunteer Type Event at the Homeless Shelter and/or Food Pantry;
  15. Start Doing Yoga as Part of my Health Journey;
  16. Pace a Few Half-Marathons;
  17. Start Bike Riding; and
  18. Being a more Positive Person, and not let the Negativity Bring me Down

There are so many more things that I would like to list, but I am doing only 18.  I really want to grow myself as an individual this year.  Everyone has room for growth.  It is important to keep your brain functioning, so challenge yourself to learn something new.  Read some books, write in a journal, talk to a stranger.

I don’t know if you set personal goals for yourself, but it is great to have something to strive for, to look forward to. Don’t ever stop pushing yourself for something that you desire to accomplish.

These are my goals. You are more than welcome to join me on the roads/trails as I put some miles in this year. Those times are when some of the best conversations take place!

God Bless!!

When God Aligns the Stars, Planets, and Ducks, and Flashes All The Neon Signs

2017 has been a year of change for me. I’ve taken control of my health, and I now do things and eat things that I said I never would. Lots of my every day supporters know how many blessings I have received this year, and it isn’t even over just yet.

My close family and close friends have been told, so it is time to share with the rest of you. After 13 years of my career at Thomas, Feldman & Wilshusen, L.L.P. in Dallas, I have resigned from my Legal Assistant Position. My last day at the Firm will be on Friday, September 1, 2017.

I have accepted a position at a reputable Firm in McKinney. My new career journey with The Burress Snellings Law Firm PLLC begins on September 5, 2017. The area of law that they practice in was my favorite back in the day, and I cannot wait to jump back in.

While I was super nervous and scared to leave my work family at TF&W, I took the leap of faith by accepting the position in McKinney. God planned this. He aligned everything for me, and all I had to do was show my faith in His plans for me. There were just too many positive things to walk away from. It was one of those situations where I wasn’t looking for a job, it just presented itself, and everything fell into place.

Exciting things are happening for me. I know this is one of the best moves for me and my family. They are all super excited, and I cannot wait to travel this journey in my life. I have chosen to dance and not sit out on this amazing opportunity. I Hope You Dance – By Lee Ann Womack was the 1st song that I heard getting back into my car after my interview. I believe that was another sign coming from the Heavens.

Goodbye to my TF&W family. Many memories were made, many tears were shed, many late night hours burned. It has been a pleasure and an honor working for you. I appreciate all the kindness you have expressed to me over the past 13 years. I have grown a lot as a Legal Assistant and a person. I wish you nothing but success and growth in the years to come.
