Last week, I officially welcomed you to 2021 and I suggested that you take a moment to look pass the chaos of the world today and think of one word that would describe what 2021 will mean to you. Were you able to give it some thought?
After much thought and contemplation, I’ve decided that my word will be “Enlightening”! During 2021, I want to gain a better knowledge and understanding, and spiritual insight as my true purpose continues to unfold. I’ve always loved Ephesians 1:18, The eyes of your understanding be enlightened; that ye may know the hope of his calling, and the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints… Read Ephesians 1-17-19, when you have a moment.
Your word should serve as a constant reminder of what you are striving for throughout this year. On this journey, we will continue to face the challenges of life and we will incur many blessings and opportunites for success along the way.
So what is your word, please share in the comments…
Over the next few weeks, as we reflect on our thoughts and revelations of 2020, I hope that there will be moments that will encourage and inspire you. We will share our ideas, thoughts and even organizing tips to help bring Order to your Mind, Body and Space, so that you will not only survive, but Thrive in the coming year!
2020 was a year like we’ve never seen before. It was year of major challenges for most, yet for some, great successes. It took me a moment or two to decide what to say as we enter 2021, this New Year. So, I’ve chosen to share some of my thoughts and reflections of the first few months of 2020. In January, we welcomed the first year of a New Decade! A year of self-empowerment. A year for us to have the confidence, in who will are and what we are capable of, and to take at least one step closer to our goal, dream and purpose.
In February, we were stepping outside our comfort; realizing that Nothing is Impossible, if we believe in ourselves. We discovered that “It’s always the right time for us to seize the opportunity to learn, grow, and be empowered to make our dreams a reality!” Then by March, we found ourselves in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and our lives would never be the same. From a very practical perspective, we needed to make major adjustments to having everyone in the house all the time. We had to focus on managing our households in our “new normal” by being innovative, creative and with careful planning. We needed to create living spaces that made us feel at ease, yet productive. This meant that we may have had to create new habits, which included a different daily routine and a more flexible schedule.
Here we are ten (10) months later and each day is a new adventure… Recently, I heard a preacher say, “Now don’t leave 2020 empty handed!” He was referring to a story in the Bible, when the children of Israel left Egypt after 400 years of bondage, with all the riches of that country. We can’t afford to go through all that we went through in 2020 and come into 2021 with nothing. We may not have monetary riches, but we definitely have a wealth of knowledge of the strength and resilence that we may not have known that we had… Now that we’ve taken just a few moments to look back, let’s begin to look forward into what the future holds for all of us.
We Welcome the 2nd Year of a New Decade!
What is the one word you would use to describe 2021?
I pray that you enjoyed this time of thoughts and reflections of 2020. I am going to begin a new series, comprised of excerpts from my 2020 Order Your Steps newsletter. So Stay Tuned for…
“My Thoughts, Reflections and Revelations of 2020″
I pray that you all have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year!
2019 is gonna be busy, but a GOOD busy! I feel that there are sooooo many NEW ideas that will be implemented this year! Many of you may be feeling the same way, so I was wondering if you would be interested in a “CONQUER THE PAPER CLUTTER MONSTER” Workshop? I haven’t worked out all the logistics, but I’m thinking 3 LIVE Interactive sessions, which would focus on developing an organized system to manage MAIL! … Personal & Business papers.
I’m working with a client now, who’s a single mom AND she is literally managing 4 small businesses. As we began to organize the papers, we realized that she needed to establish an Order to her life, which would allow her to operate a lot SMARTER, because she was already working HARDER!
If we can help you, just let us know…
It’s 2019! So What Are You Going To Do About It? Do You Have A Plan? We would like to suggest that you Dream Big, Set Goals, Take Action!
We at Order Your Steps have a LOT going for the New Year and we are SUPER Excited… Take a Listen!
Don’t just make a resolution, but let’s do it. Let’s not just talk about it, but let’s get it done. Just let us know if we can help! Order Your Steps
2019 has just began and it’s time to Organize your Mind, your Body and your Space! We would like to suggest that we think of organizing as a time “to plan and take action.” This is the best time to start new habits, to begin a new less hectic pace for our lives and possibly, a new way of thinking! We should organize our mind & body for a healthier lifestyle and plan to be more productive and more efficient in all aspects of our lives. Then we should take time to organize key areas of our homes, so that we know what we have, where we have it and be able to put our hand on it, when we need it.
We pray that this year, we will continue to seek those opportunities to operate in our passion, use the talents and gifts that the Lord have given us and fulfill His purpose for us.
Take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed. Focus on our positive accomplishments and don’t dwell on the negative. It is very difficult to build for BIGGER without a foundation. Let’s make sure we have an action plan with our goals & objectives for at least the next few months.
We have to know where we’ve been, where we are going and …how we’re going to get there!
Coming in June, 2019
I’m SUPER excited to announce My New Book entitled:
“Order, Organize & Obedience”
This book will allow me to share how my steps have been ordered for more than 40 years, but my journey has only just begun.
Please pray for me as I embark on this new adventure!
The Countdown has begun…. Our How-to-Course to help you to organize your closet is Coming to YouTube on January 29th! Please join us…
The year 2018 is now only days away! I’d suggest that we take just a quick glance back over 2017 and see how much our lives have changed. The things that we’ve accomplished … or not, are totally dependent on our perspective! However, we’ve experienced almost 365 days (over 8,000 hours) of life, some days were challenging and others enlightening, but I pray that we have lived EVERY day to it’s fullness!
As a NEW year approaches, we must look beyond the Chaos of the world today and continue to focus to establishing more Order in our lives day by day. In spite of what we see, we should move forward with Purpose, Determination and Expectation!
I believe that we will continue to experience a “Shifting” in our lives in 2018. Shifting is defined as changing, especially unpredictably.
- Keep our eyes open, so that we can avoid the distractions and move the barriers.
- Walk through the doors that the Lord opens, but don’t try to push through the doors that He closes.
- Plan for success, but don’t give up if we fail. Just get up and TRY again!
- Organize along the way (I am a professional organizer :-D) and Stay on Track…
May you have a Blessed & Prosperous New Year!
Well, 2015 is here! The biblical meaning of the number 15 is a new direction and to rest in God. I don’t see my direction changing, but the scripture that’s been resonating in my spirit, if you haven’t guessed is ….
So I will simply rest and wait for His instructions. I’m not sure what God has in store for me this year, but, I’ve decided to just allow Him to continue to Order My Steps. When I reflect back to my first post of 2014, “Ramblings of what’s ahead for me in 2014“, my words for this year of 2015 are exactly the same. I am not sure if that’s good or bad, but I plan on staying the course …. FULL SPEED AHEAD!!!
I WISH EVERYONE A VERY BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!
