The theme I’ve decided for this year is, “The Next Level Up!”. What does this mean? It means we’re elevating! We’re leaving what happened in previous years in the past. We’re healing from past hurt and LETTING GO (for real this time). We’re practicing the Law of Attraction (read my previous blog about this if you haven’t already). We’re cutting off all the people and things that don’t help us grow. Lastly, we’re living our best life! “I’m living my best life, I ain’t going back and forth with you…!”

In 2019, we’re not allowing anything or anyone to hold us back from being the best version of ourselves. It’s very important for us to constantly evolve. We should never be the same person we were yesterday. New goals require a new you sometimes, and if I’m being real some blessings haven’t manifested because the new version of you hasn’t happened yet.

For me personally, 2019 is the year I’ve been waiting on FOR YEARS! In May, I’ll be graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship and hopefully beginning cosmetology school in August. This year, I’ll be able to work towards the goals I had for so many years, and not have the excuse of “being in college”. I’ll be a college grad, moving into my first apartment, entering cosmetology school to become a licensed cosmetologist, and going into my 3rd year of business. Now that’s the definition of the next level up!

Last week my aunt asked me what was my theme for 2019, and to be honest I haven’t even thought about it. But one of the things I wanted to start this year, was write down all the things I hoped to see manifest within the next 12 months. The goals I have for myself requires a new version of myself. The old me no longer is available. To get to where I want to be, I have to do things I’ve never done before, think differently, and walk the talk. Writing and mapping out what I want to accomplish allowed me to have tunnel vision to eventually get to where I want to be. This helped me see what I want to do, and what I have to do in order to get there.

I challenge everyone reading this blog post to write down ALL your goals for 2019. Professionally and personally. If you really want to go more in-depth (and you should!), underneath each goal write what actions you plan to do in order to achieve that goal. Throughout the year, you’ll be able to measure and evaluate your progress, and hopefully, by this time next year, you’ll be able to check off at least 75% of the goals you wrote down.

We are Queens. We have Panache and we wear our inner confidence EVERYDAY, ALL DAY. We’re taking everything to the NEXT LEVEL. In 2019, we’re seeing what else is in store for us. We’re chasing our dreams. We’re living our best life and doing it with PANACHE! This year we will feel capable to do and achieve everything that we once doubted ourselves in. Start that business, revamp an existing business, write a book you’re wanting to write, begin dating again, build or rekindle friendships. Do whatever has been holding you back.

Once again, I wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope this year will be full of prosperity and blessings unto you and your loved ones. And remember to always “Wear Your Inner Confidence” in everything you do.
