The Year of the Woman

247149_229666550383730_8068758_nWhenever I walk through my front door, I’m greeted with our family crest. It depicts the vision and mission statement for our family, reminding us not only of who we are, but what we are called to do. We know what each image represents and understand the impact we will have for generations when we mirror these images. It also serves as a guide for us to identify when we are living up to them and when we’re going astray.

When our family received, documented and cast this vision for our future, it was a defining moment for me that not only transformed me, it liberated me. I learned that regardless of what external forces existed to oppose me, there was a greater force at work within me to bring about something bigger than me. I also learned that this vision was not reliant upon just one of us, it was the responsibility of all of us. We all simply needed to do our part.

Realizing this, I became more intentional about doing my part, investing in my personal growth and navigating through the good, the bad and the mundane with purpose by identifying and removing distractions that attempted to keep me off task, off course and as a consequence, in bondage. I knew I was called to do something great and I would no longer be held captive by mediocrity. It was my time and future generations of our family were depending on me to do my part.

As a new year commences, I’m convinced that this is not only my time, this is OUR time. I envision a year of rapid progress for women around the world as we all resolve to do our part realizing what effects one of us effects us all. Don’t live another day held captive by limitations imposed upon you because you can’t see beyond the bars. Open your eyes to the possibilities. Stop making excuses for yourself and instead, turn obstacles into opportunities. Write a vision for yourself and a course of action to navigate you to your destiny. You are THE woman! Now, believe in yourself and be the woman you see. We need you and the world needs us. May this be our year. The year of the woman!

  1. I have observed that good real estate agents everywhere are warming up to FSBO Marketing and advertising. They are seeing that it’s in addition to placing a sign in the front yard. It’s really in relation to building human relationships with these dealers who at some point will become purchasers. So, when you give your time and effort to encouraging these retailers go it alone — the “Law regarding Reciprocity” kicks in. Thanks for your blog post.

  2. Thanks for the strategies you discuss through your blog. In addition, a lot of young women which become pregnant tend not to even try and get health care insurance because they worry they couldn’t qualify. Although many states at this point require that insurers give coverage irrespective of the pre-existing conditions. Prices on most of these guaranteed options are usually greater, but when thinking about the high cost of medical treatment it may be your safer route to take to protect your own financial future.

  3. Another thing I have noticed is the fact that for many people, below-average credit is the consequence of circumstances beyond their control. For instance they may be really saddled having an illness so they have substantial bills for collections. Maybe it’s due to a job loss or even the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce can really send the budget in the wrong direction. Thank you for sharing your notions on this site.

  5. Thanks for giving your ideas listed here. The other issue is that each time a problem arises with a laptop or computer motherboard, people should not go ahead and take risk regarding repairing this themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to all the laptop. It’s usually safe just to approach the dealer of the laptop for any repair of that motherboard. They’ve already technicians who’ve an knowledge in dealing with notebook computer motherboard troubles and can make right prognosis and undertake repairs.

  8. Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog. Also, a fable regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about foreclosure is that the bank will not take my payments. There is a certain quantity of time the bank requires payments occasionally. If you are way too deep inside hole, they are going to commonly call that you pay the particular payment in full. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of payments at all. Should you and the financial institution can be capable to work one thing out, the actual foreclosure course of action may stop. However, should you continue to neglect payments wih the new system, the foreclosed process can pick up exactly where it left off.

  9. I would also like to mention that most people who find themselves with no health insurance are normally students, self-employed and people who are not working. More than half of the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty-five. They do not think they are requiring health insurance since they are young plus healthy. Their particular income is generally spent on real estate, food, in addition to entertainment. Many individuals that do work either full or not professional are not presented insurance through their jobs so they proceed without owing to the rising cost of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the thoughts you discuss through this website.

  24. Los electrodomésticos Siemens excluidos de la reparación, no son tratados ni a domicilio, ni tampoco en nuestras instalaciones, dadas sus particularidades como puede ser; un valor de adquisición muy bajo por lo no resulta rentable para el cliente la reparación de la avería, ya que puede resultar más barato comprar un electrodoméstico Siemens nuevo, que el coste de la reparación.

  25. Lo que me deja perplejo es que después de consensuarlo con mi mujer nos decidimos a pagar los 39 euros – que cuesta renovar la sincroguía pero no podemos porque la dirección MAC de nuestro Gigaset no responde al protocolo 00:01:3E:… no sé por qué motivo. Como no está en garatía debo pagar los gastos de reparación/actualización para poder recibit la sincroguía (la cual he recibiddo correctamente durante más de dos años). Efectivament me sale más barato comparme un aparato nuevo que pagar los gastos de transporte hasta Madrid y después la reparación” además de la cuota de la sincroguía.
