Happy New Year: Hello 2013!

Happy New Year Chicsters!!!!

I am so excited for 2013.  I am looking forward for God's leading in my life in all areas of my life. I just want to see His will unfold in our lives and for this blog. I will be embraking on new journies, and I'm happy that I read my sister's post about enjoying the journey called life.  Sometimes we can be so focused on the destination that we lose sight of the many key lessons we can learn during the process .  Thanks for the reminder Nicole!

While I didn't make any resolutions per se, there are lifestyle changes I am making to create "My Best Life Now" as Joel Osteen would say. Below I am sharing five of those journies with you.

Consistent Quiet Time with God: My relationship with God is my foundation, and I must do my part to keep that foundation strong.

Career: In 2012 I graduated from law school and embarked on my career. I will continue to learn, grow and develop as I trust God to fulfill His purpose in my life.

Discipline: Self-discipline is extremely important and it's difficult to truly be our best selves and do our best work without it.  It is a quality I have in some areas but that I want it in all areas. I am reading the widely acclaimed Seven Habits of Highly Effective People to help me develop a strategy to grow stronger in this area.

Health: Our health is a gift that we should cherish, but too often we neglect it. One of the benefits about moving to L.A. is that it affords me the opportunity to enjoy an old favorite pasttime - running  outdoors - year long.  There's also the benefit of living in a neighborhood where it appears that everyone runs outdoors. I'll be joining them!

Hair Journey: After wearing my hair either in short cuts or in extensions for the past couple of years, I am embraking on a journey to grow my own hair. I will be learning my hair along the way and will make sure to check in and update with you guys as I go along.

 Will you be starting any new journies for 2013? What are they?
