2017 – The Year I Fight For My Life

Posted on Posted in Embracing Change, Embracing Life

I was so hyped about 2017!

I mapped out all I want to do and even left space for anything God wants to bring my way. I talked to hubby to ensure he was on board with my vision.  He gave me the green light, so I was all set.

I checked my 2017 to-do list:

  • Prayers
  • Vision Board
  • 2017 Transformational Planner
  • Focus
  • Strategize
  • More Prayer
  • Leave FB groups that no longer fit my purpose
  • Join FB groups that do fit my purpose
  • Lose weight and get my A1C below diabetic once again
  • Travel for speaking engagements
  • Partner with people and organizations that fit my purpose
  • Even more prayer

I did all of this from the comfort of my home. Once I looked over all of this, I froze. I felt butterflies in my stomach transform into vultures fight over roadkill. I found myself sweating and feeling sick.

But why?


Fear of:

  • not being qualified
  • not having done this for long
  • not being taken seriously
  • friends thinking I was being brand-new
  • people not showing up to my events
  • people not purchasing my products and services
  • making mistakes
  • leaving my friends behind
  • not being able to balance it all
  • being rejected

All these things gripped me and literally held me by my neck. I had several sleepless nights this year. Yes, girl, me.

So, I woke up this morning determined not to allow fear to torment me anymore. I am in the fight for my life. I realize that I can’t go any further than where I am if I don’t fight back.

Ladies, this post is my request for accountability. 

I need you! I need you to say, “Hey, T, what’s up with this or that?” Hit me up via FB, IG, TW, email or carrier pigeon. I need my sisters to get all up in my face and make sure I get ish done. Straight up.

I need you to help me fight for my life.
