It’s September All Ready Sheesh…

September

Man where has the year gone…it seems like this year has flown by.  So much has happened and I am still processing it all everyday.  But life is pretty dang good these days and I am just living one day at a time.

Now lets get to September, as I told you at the beginning of August, at the beginning of the year I titled my months because I wanted to live on purpose and be consistent in 2016.  My word for the year is Consistent and the word for September is Intentional.  When I started naming them I wasn’t strategic in naming them I just knew what words I wanted to live by during this year and implement into my life.

As I sat in my car trying to figure out what I wanted to be intentional about and how I was going to get it across to you all, my faithful few. I came up with nothing 😳.  But as fate would have it I had to take my braids out that same night and instead of watching one of my favorite shows “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” as I always do on Friday nights, I decided to get on YouTube and try to get some direction and wisdom.  I came across a video of Oprah Winfrey giving an empowerment talk at the 2016 Essence Festival. One of the main points that she drove home was that there came a time in her life that she decided to be intentional in every aspect of her life.

Now I was about to figure out what to change the word to if I couldn’t figure out how to explain and use this word for September and then it clicked while I was in the shower.  I have to start being more intentional with myself, with my time, with my space, with God, with prayer, with my family, with my finances, with my business, with my love, and with my life completely.  Although I have been accomplishing a lot of my goals this year, I’ve kind of just been flowing with the waves of life lately.  So September is the month to be more intentional – with you and everything that you want around you.

Goals for September:

  • Be intentional in scheduling my days.
  • Be intentional with my Bible study time.
  • Be intentional with branding and building Simply My Purpose.
  • Be intentional in building different streams of income.

There is nothing average about you…So step up in your life and make it happen.  No one can do it for you but you!!!!  You have to make the first steps before others will take notice and want to help.  Do it BIG for you and see where you go.  Dream BIG and Live BIG!!!!!

No regrets … live in the moments … leave it all on the table. No one wants to look back and say I should have did this or that when I had the chance when the chance was right there in front of you.  Live life to its fullest potential no matter what!!!!

When I read this I heard the tune “Do a little dance, Make a little love, Get down tonight…” But realizing that life is a delicate balance of making your life what you want it to be and represent.  You have to know when to move and when to be still and there is a time for both.  Walking that fine line of I need to do this but I need to let this just fall into place can get a little stressful and once you think you have mastered that rhythm a new tune starts to play.  Enjoy the dance and stay in step with the life that you want for yourself.

You know we often get caught up in the blame game and it is never our fault for where we are and what has happened around us.  But the truth is you are the only one responsible for you in real life.  You can’t wait for others to make you happy, get you where you want to be, and satisfy you.  You have to be willing to do that for yourself and until you are tired of being where you are you won’t make the necessary changes.  Truth is we as individuals hold ourselves back more than anyone or anything can.  So will you stop holding yourself back and GO GET YOUR HAPPY?!?!?!?!?!?!
