Happy New Year
January 2, 2015

Hiiii splashy readers this collage pretty much sums up me bringing in my New Year!!! 2014 Miss you but Goodbye. Hello 2015 (inserts wave along with a Rick Ross grunt riiiight here 😂 haha).

image

I was asked what has 2014 taught you? 2014 has taught me if you change the way you look at things. The things you look at change. It was definately a year of self evaluation, loss and reflection. This year has been difficult, an eye opener but nontheless productive in the final quarter.

image

I lost a lot last year but some losses are a gain. Some actions I won’t repeat again. I regained strength, found happiness and I am finally ready to take on my life quest. I must admit I have been jetsetting passed my destiny.  I am glad that I am refocused.

image

Moving forward I just want to do what makes ME happy, be with who makes ME smile, laugh as much as I breathe and love as long as I live. This will be my motto this year especially because I have given so much of myself to ensure others were in a good position.

image

Last year was filled with surprises, highs and lows. From making imperative career decisions and sacrifices which took a toll on my personal relationships, quality time with my family and losing a very instrumental part of my life song my Gramz. Rebuilding the walls they may be a little taller but with patience, understanding and time you’ll get MORE of me when you try to change LESS of me.

image

I will continue with my efforts for the #iSmileforAngele incentive program it has brought me so much joy to giveback, refueled my strength and made a vast amount of people smile. I am forever grateful! We encounter so many negative withdrawals make sure you are ONLY accepting positive deposits.

image

They say time creates legacies. But there’s more to it than that. Much more. You have to invent something. Do something no one’s ever done before. See the world differently. Describe the world differently. You must stand firm.  Be popular one day. Be unpopular the next. And stick to your guns, regardless.  Be brave. Forge ahead. Thank you Gramz for giving my purpose a greater purpose.

image

Thank you to my splashy readers for your everlasting support. Wishing everyone a successful 2015!
