As a new year rolls around are you expecting great things to happen to you in 2018? *waves hands* I know I am! I’m hoping to live my best life going forward. Not just in 2018 but from here on out. I have gathered a list of inspirational quotes to live by this year.I've learned over the years Faith + Actions will get me the results I want and need. Click To Tweet
I plan to live my life intentionally and unapologetically. I plan to commit to the things I’m passionate about. I hope to be consistent in my doings to see great results. Last year I experimented with a lot of areas of my life to see what works for me and what doesn’t. So this year, I hope to plant seeds and watch them grow throughout the year. I’ve learned over the years faith + actions will get me the results I want and need in my life.
Therefore, I plan to step out in faith A LOT. I’m moving out of my comfort zone and taking leaps of faith, friends. I suggest you do the same too. I swear it feels like 2017 flew by. Honestly, I don’t think I took full advantage of my 2017. So I intend to take full advantage of 2018. I plan to push past all the things I’ve allowed to limit me over the years. Friends, there is so much work to do in this world. I’m talking about doing things to that will make a difference and being a blessing to those in need.
For 2018, I challenge each one of you to find a problem and create a solution to solve it. If you’re thinking about starting a business, I suggest you start with the problems others are facing. I guarantee you people are waiting for it and are willing to pay for it.
Cheers to living your best life yet in 2018. Darling, you got this. Hope you find these as inspiring as I did.
I encourage you to work on creating healthy habits this year and eliminate all the bad habits you have accumulated over the years. The things you do repeatedly becomes a habit. Whether they are good or bad you get accustomed to doing it.
Gosh, this one is a bit hard at times. But God said to love your neighbor as you love yourself. He didn’t say you have to be friends with them. Love has no conditions. So whether you like them or not God says to love them. You can love people from a far and not harbor hatred in your heart for them. Easier said than done but God does not hate and we ought to be an imitation of Him.
No dream or goal is easy. Whatever goal you have requires hard work and it takes grace to accomplish any dream or goal we have. God’s grace will give you the strength you need to follow through on the dream you have been struggling with year after year. Friend, I declare this year will be different for you in Jesus name. You will get through this year by GRACE!
Friends, let’s be honest, life does always play out the way we expect it to. Maybe you should be further along in life by now. Maybe you think you’ve been dealt a crappy hand in life. And maybe it’s all true. But what I’m trying to say is things will happen unexpectedly. But don’t seat around and throw pity parties. Keep going and make yourself happy. Don’t wait for others to do it for you. Laugh and dance if you have to.
You don’t have to wait until things are good to make memories and enjoy life. Enjoy life right where you are, right here, right now.
One of my favorite quotes. We live in a society where people believe in overnight success and everything should happen instantly. They forget about the process and preparation season before one reaches a particular level of success. Success does not happen overnight. There is no such thing as ready-made success. Life is not like popcorn! You put it in the microwave and suddenly it’s done. You can’t take the elevator to the level you desire to reach. You have to take the steps. You will run into disappointments and setbacks but it does not mean you won’t be successful. It just means everything takes time.
I’m a firm believer in overcoming fear. We were created to be fearless individuals. I believe fear is an illusion from the enemy used to limit us from reaching our fullest potential. God did not give us a spirit of fear, He gave us love and a sound mind. You serve a God who has no limits and if you are an imitation of Him, therefore, you have no limits. You can do anything you put your mind too.
Many times we fail to pursue our dreams because we don’t know where to start. Well, how about you start believing you can actually accomplish your dream. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get started. If you don’t believe, why would you want to pursue it?
There is no need to compete with the next person. Stop looking at what others are doing and work on you. Don’t ever get complacent in who you are, there is always a better version of you. Every day you are in the land of the living God is giving you a chance to improve YOURSELF!
This goes back to the unexpected situations we may face this year. There is no roadmap to where you’re going in life. Nothing is guaranteed, things will happen where you don’t have control over it. But how will you react to it? What are you going to do?
Create your own happiness, you’re in control of your own happiness. Don’t allow others to abuse their power in your life. Stop allowing toxic people to control your emotions and just be happy.
As you go through this year, enjoy and embrace every moment. 2017 went by so quickly and here we are now in 2018. Let’s make the best of this year. Every moment counts. Stop waiting for something big to happen to you. You are alive and that’s huge. Make it count!
Out of all these quotes, I want you to remember this one especially. As you go through the year and you’re faced with the challenges of life remember “this too shall pass.” Everything is for a season.
Don’t allow the words of others to make you feel any less than who you are. Don’t allow the insecurities of others belittle you. You are enough, you are beautiful and smart. You are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God.
Don’t allow anyone to dim your lights. Speak up for what is right. If certain friendships or relationships are not working out let it go. There is always something better. You don’t need to be a part of any toxic environment. You have choices and no one can make decisions for you but YOU. Make healthy choices.
