A Life of Freedom…

break the chain, no more strongholds...

The new year is approaching and new year’s resolutions will be kicked into action, beginning January 1. Why not give that one last gift? That gift that keeps on giving. The gift of support as well as freedom from addictions or mentalities that keep greatness in life bound.

You may know someone, a loved one perhaps, or a close friend, who is in need of support, but would like an option that will ease them into the process. You may have thought, if only they could speak with this person, or have access to a group of people experiencing the same thing, then maybe they would be able to see that life can be brighter, better, positive, giving, rewarding, endearing and worthwhile.

I have compiled a list of support groups, based off of the 12-Step program format, that are available for those facing addictive tendencies and seeking a way out. The following list is intended to be a starting point for you to research, to see if the program options are viable for those intended. It also serves to show that there is support out there for those who are locked in certain habits and want desperately to be free. Give them the gift of freedom, support, accepting  and understanding community. Please use your own discretion and research each option thoroughly to ensure the best outcome. You can find the following information as well as additional links on the 12Steps.org website, and I am appreciative to them for the service they provide.

Bringing in the New Year… With a Plan

Exposive Success

I thought long and hard about how excited I am about the New Year, what it represents to me and how I want honor it and step within on the right note. I figured I am already doing it partially right as my oldest son is with me during this holiday, which is a huge treat. I figured that I spent last New Year’s visiting with family, bubbly, music, a little dancing… it was nice, but I really want something more this year. I want to bring in the New Year with a newer, fresher outlook on life and New ways of thinking and New Actions to take. I figured I would go all out and try something that I have never done before.

I am going to stay AT HOME, with my children, praying and blessing my home while inviting positive direction, energy, feelings, emotions, positive growth and development, … a positive life in. You see, I’m a huge fan of New Year’s celebrations, and due to the overwhelming amount of things I hurdled in order to get to 2014’s door, I am choosing to  focus my attention on saying good bye to all of those hurdles and HELLO to the outpouring of blessings and positive energy 2014 brings.

It takes a lot to remain focused on what’s positive, when you are surrounded and compounded, almost daily, with distractions. BUT, if you would just keep your focus you will see that the distractions have to sit down and be still at some point in your journey. So why not NOW!

“The celebration style I have chosen is for the mindset I desire to be in, in order to produce great things in 2014.” ~ Coach Kenyatte

So, how do you plan for your New Year/New You?

resolution

Another way I plan, is to literally plan. I actually sit down and write out my goals and objectives, both personal/interpersonal and professional, and then read them off out loud. This process helps to aid in committing to memory and speaking life to your plans, for them to transform into reality.

You see, once you have written them and then spoken them, now it is your bodies turn, by way of your subconscious mind, to start getting in line with and positioning you for your opportunities of greatness.

Once you have crossed over the threshold of 2014, you then revisit your goals every so often (daily, weekly, monthly) to make sure that you are staying on track. What happens, is this, you write it, say it, your body starts finding the path to it. Now, it is your minds job to RECOGNIZE and call the “paths to your dream” by their rightful name (Identification).

You MUST recognize the paths that are being laid out before you; those paths that are right and heading you in the correct direction and those paths that are detractors or distractions from your goals. You have to evaluate, weigh and determine what is what and chose accordingly.

Now, this is quite a bit of information for one post. But I wrote it to make sure that those of you who need it have a way to get started out on the right foot. The POWER of CHOICE is at your disposal and use. Choose wisely.

“Set your goals big enough that you enjoy the process of reaching them. Set your goals far enough that it takes you many new places, experiencing many new things while achieving them.” ~ Coach Kenyatte

Dream, Achieve, Succeed, Grow!

Here’s to a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
