By: Miss Journey Thu, 08 Jan 2009 01:05:57 +0000 “YES WE CAN:” has certainly spilled over into the New Year and I am definitely excited about 2009. In my aha moment, I realized just how unlimited the possibilities are for this upcoming year. The opportunities may not be readily available but they are definitely out there. I for one am freaking ecstatic about the potential of what this year can bring, and I am happy to see that you are just as excited as I am. Best of luck to you afrobella and all your readers in 09!

By: MelleMel Tue, 06 Jan 2009 17:45:22 +0000 This was a fantastic post. It got me all fired up and ready to go! This year this a lot I want to accomplish and some of these goals are ones that I carry over from year to year and while you took baby steps, I just stumbled, fell down, crawled a little and finally found my footing again. For me 2009 is all about mindset. Changing my thinking. I’m a reasonably intelligent person so I know what is right and wrong, yet I find myself doing things that aren’t in alignment with the life I want to live. So, this year is about working on that connection between what I think and what I do.

2009, I’m gonna shine! Love it!

By: Nikiya Mon, 05 Jan 2009 17:11:41 +0000 This is my 1st time replying….I typically read this blog often…As with most ppl I find this one to be especially refreshing….I don’t like to use the term resolution but instead I will say goals….to me I put more weight on a goal & typically avoid breaking them, even if it takes a while to accomplish them….to sum it up, my goals for this year is to be happy….

With happiness comes being more optimistic and positive….I am that way when it comes to other ppl but when it’s concerning myself, I’m my worst critic and tend to have a negative outlook…I want to change that…I’m too talented to let some insecurities keep me from doing it big!!!

08 was suppose to be my year but there were some minor setbacks & wakeup calls that kept me in a negative frame of mind….Some people in my life from 08 stayed there as I refuse to surround myself with anybody other than like-minded individuals…positive individuals…

09 will be good because I graduate w/my degree in May & my car will be paid off…I plan, scratch that, I WILL find employment in my field as well…

other 09 goals:
~~think positive
~~BE positive
~~save some $ for an emergency acct
~~pay down student loan debt
~~start a blog and eventually a website
~~turning my side hustle/field into income & promoting my services on said blog & website
~~becoming more active physically
~~letting go of the past…(I may not forgive/forget, but there is no reason why I should continue to harp on things)…
~~making time ONLY for those who make time for me…
~~trying more recipes out of my cookbooks
~~starting a bookclub (still debating on that cuz my friends don’t read as much as I do…maybe I need to meet new friends, LOL)

It’s time for me to stop talking and start doing!!! wishing you Bella & all other readers success in everything they set forth…
