January 1. A new start. A fresh start. A clean slate. It can be anything you want it to be.

I normally have a long list of “resolutions”  I want for the year. And than I forget about them in about March. This year, I am not setting resolutions. I am just going to enjoy it. Every minute of 2017, I am going to enjoy. You could probably say that is my resolution, but I am saying it is my goal.

All of my life I have always spoke my mind, in any situation! I am Nicole 100% of the time. I am compassionate. I am emotional. I am passionate. I am loving, and about 99 more things. I am just doing me this year. Joy. I am going to find Joy.

2017 is going to bring joy. laugher. adventure.

I bet you are asking yourself, well how is she so confident that the year is going to be so great? I am going to let you in on a little secret… I’m not. I do not know what will happen this year. But I do know the mindset I will bring to it. Joy. Will shitty things happen? Of course, but I will bring Joy to each and every situation I am encountered with this year. I will help others more. I will encourage greatness from my peers. I will let His love shine through me. Every single day. Will I fail somedays? Yes. But guess what? Each day we get to start over. Each day, every hour can be January 1. A new start, a fresh start, and a clean slate.

Thank you for sharing this journey with me!
