It’s the last month of the year and it feels like the year flew by. I decided I wasn’t going to wait until the new year to start making changes in my personal life. I wanted to get going now so that by the time the new year started, I could K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy). When you already have momentum doing something, it is easier to keep it up and keep it going. Sometimes the hard part is just getting started.

There are so many things I realized I wanted to do but had been putting on hold. A lot of things I decided to wait until the next year to start. The question finally came to me, “Why wait?” All these things I had been planning for, there was really no need to hold off and wait on. My question to you is what are you waiting on? There is still time left in the year 2018! Even if there are things you cannot finish before the end of the year, at least GET STARTED!!!

I had plans to hold off on business, blogging, and even Rose of Sharon women’s ministry until the new year. The words of encouragement, affirmation, and prophetic insight told me otherwise. Since I decided not to wait, opportunities opened up for me. I was able to make an impact in even such a short period of time by continuing to blog even when I wanted to quit. I have more clients now for my business than I had all year and Rose of Sharon is starting to blossom into exactly what God called it to be.

I don’t say any of that to brag on me, but I say that to encourage you to not give up and not wait, but to begin now. Sometimes we need to get that fire we had initially back. Maybe you had started some things at the beginning of the year that you haven’t gone back to. Don’t wait until January 1, 2019 to go back to them. Pick them up right now. Start writing again. Start journaling again. Create that screenplay. Start that company. Build your brand. Launch out. It is not too late.

The theme for this month is K.T.S.E. Don’t just stop what you have already started and don’t hold off on what you want to start. Going into the new year, you should already have your goals and plans in mind. January 1, 2019 isn’t the time to create a new year’s resolution. January 1, 2019 is the time to start launching what you have already been building.

I want each and everyone of you to FINISH STRONG! Get your momentum and K.T.S.E. going into the new year. Don’t just write out New Year’s resolutions, begin to plan them out and set structure to the things that you desire to give birth to. 2019 will be the year of multiple births. The things you felt had been held up, you will begin to see manifest. It Begins NOW!
