I love the start of a new year - the freshness, the promise of new beginnings, the excitement of great possibilities and turning a new leaf. Like a lot of people, I made a few goals for this year. For me, goals are more real when you write them down, so they have been written and available for me to review periodically in order to monitor my progress. For as long as I can remember, I created goals. Its how I tracked my progress and my personal growth. Combining the faith to create goals + the power of consistency almost always resulted in a goal achieved.
Since I already created the goals, this year I'm focusing on consistency. Experience taught me that it's powerful, and without consistent actions goals are simply dreams. Consistent actions (or a lack thereof) can mean the difference between a deposit toward meeting our goals or a withdrawal that can lead to us missing the mark. Whether it's fitness, work, relationships or any other area in our lives, consistency breeds results. Not being consistent means that I am not committed, and for me, I aim to live a life where I'm fully committed to my dreams.
Here's to using consistent actions to achieve our goals and dreams!
I wore this look to dinner with a few friends the day before New Year's Eve. During dinner we spoke about some of our goals that we wanted to acheive in the new year and behaviors we wanted to implement to enhance our lives. That dinner conversation provided the inspiration for this post.

f I could choose a winter brunch uniform then it would be a sweater dress and over-the-knee boots. The look is both comfortable and chic for me and if I decide to wear tights with this look, I opt for something fun (kinda like the purple tights I'm wearing below).
The title of this post pays homage to a quote I read a few years ago. It's pretty self-explanatory, if you yearn to receive something in your life, then give that thing you seek to receive. What is it that you crave more of in your life? Is it more love? friendship? kindness? blessings? Turn that around and think about how you can be more loving, kinder or be more of a blessing to someone.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently got engaged, and as promised, I'm sharing our proposal story with you on my Youtube channel. On October 21, 2017, the man of my dreams asked me to marry him and I said YES. Hear all about how and where it happened in this video about our proposal story.
Last weekend as I posed to take outfit photos for the blog, it started to rain, so I decided to make my umbrella part of my overall look. Why? Because that's real life and like life sometimes we have to adjust our plans to fit the circumstances.
It's here! The video where I'm talking about book two in my five book video series, Books for Women Who Want to Win.
