How To Move Forward in 2014

The word of the month is MOVING FORWARD because in 2014 you can’t afford to look back!

Why didn’t God put eyes in the back of your head? As a vulnerable human you could certainly use them there.

That way you can really, “watch your back”.  LOL moving forward in 2014

They are in the front and we can truly pull a metaphysical message from this;

it is more important to look ahead than look behind.

When you look behind-at the things that you miss, lost, had-you are stuck in the past. You are living today but mourning yesterdays. Mourning brings with it biochemical changes.

At the appropriate time mourning is healing and cleansing but when one has become “stuck” there then it turns into depression, bitterness and regrets.

Carrying around these emotions when you are trying to live your best life is such a dichotomy that it becomes TOTALLY impossible. Which leads to more regrets, bitterness and depression. And you live a vicious cycle.


FORGIVE       That’s it.

  • Let go of the thought that you are owed something.
  • Let go of the thought that you have lost something.
  • Let go of the thought that things are suppose to be a certain way.


What if everything was just the way it’s suppose to be. It’s perfectly designed to bring you happiness but in your stuck state of mourning you’re only seeing and experiencing the bad.

Think about it. And then let go. You have nothing to lose; except bright, new reasons to move forward!

My 2012 New Year Prayer

The prayer of St. Francis is the prayer that I pray for myself this 2012 new year; I also pray it for everyone of you who stops by to read it!

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

Much success to you this 2012!

Start Planning Your New Year Goals NOW

Many mompreneurs are so busy with year-end holiday plans, completing business projects and taking care of the family that they don’t get around to planning their new year goals until AFTER the New Year festivities!

This is the month. This is the time;  early to mid-Novemeber is when  a mompreneur should re-assess her year and then make plans to do better, different, more or less next year.


Why should you start planning your new year goals NOW? Because holidays plan, meals, shopping and family will attack you like you’re a bloody stump dropped into a hungry shark’s tank! Just think back to last year…and the year before! Remember! The last 3 weeks of the year no one really works.


If YOU are working there is the constant disruption of your day due to shopping, cooking and eating events because everyone’s trying to reconnect and get into “holiday cheer”. Christmas is a wonderful time of year and you want to participate in these events without feeling guilty or pressured to finish out your year end projects.

So start tying your year up right now and/or start planning for next year!

Here are 3 simple steps to start planning for the new year:

  • 1. Create a space of celebration and acknowledgement with a group of momprenuers where you all feel comfortable bragging about your accomplishments for the year of 2011. We all have accomplishments but tend to gloss over them as we go off to work on the next set of goals. A great way to move forward is to stop and celebrate.
  • 2. Buy a FRESH, pretty journal and use it to keep track of all of your goals, projects, ideas and wishes for the new year.
  • 3. Create a Vision Board to help you stay focused on your dreams for 2012. I’m throwing a Vision Board Party on January 12, 2012 at 12noon. It will cost $12.  If you are near Greenville SC you’re invited to join us! Vision Boards are powerful visual reminders to your subconscious (and conscious) mind and will keep pulling you back to where you want to go.

With these 3 simple steps in place your business is treated with respect as you take time out to implement plans as oppose to flying by the seat of your pants come January and playing catch-up for the 1st few of months of the new year.

Mompreneur Inspiration for The New Year

Andrea Griggs of Females with A Mission just interviewed me on her BlogTalk Show, and we talked about the women who aren’t “feeling” the new year yet.  She asked for my tips and suggestions on how to overcome the failures of 2010.

If you would like to listen click here or copy and paste the link.


Here are some quotes that summarizes the points that I made during the interview…just because I love quotes.

You have to DECIDE to make it a new year.

“Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.”  Thomas Mann

Make some decisions about what you want to happen.

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Decide who you are going to get rid of this year.

“New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.” James Agate

Sit still to listen to God’s voice.

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. T.S. Eliot
