Welcome to the New Year! It’s been nothing short of uneventful, if you ask me!
I wanted to share a few things and call it a day.
First off, I am normally very organized and grounded at the start of the year but without a clear vision for the upcoming months. This year, 2018, I have started the year off with a move back to Harlem in the frigid cold. I moved in an Uber XL, typical fashion of course. I almost (key word: almost) have grown to love these moves. Ha.
I thoroughly enjoy the interaction with my Uber drivers. Always a He~ this particular Uber driver, Wei says, “No way,” as he picks me in his mini-van. After playing Tetris with my belongings we drive away from Cornelia Street. Wei says, “Never had I ever believe your stuff would fit!” Laughing. Chuckling. “Your bed and all- it fit!”
Out of Bushwick I went. I was glad to leave Bushwick- the home of too much drinking (speaking for myself!)
Which leads to my second point. I am not drinking this year. I am taking a year of sobriety and cleansing. Leading to my third point/ topic:
Have you picked a word for the year, if so what is it?
My home church (PC3) is the pioneer for ‘my one word’- a construct for the new year instead of creating resolutions which ultimately seem to crumble a few months later.
Third, I am going to be intentional about building a stronger community and deeper friendships and dating!! Bring on the good looking men who love Jesus and females!
PS I have wanted to run a half marathon for the past 7 years and now is the time.
PSS if you need prayer this month in particular hit me up via insta: ___choosejoy___ 😎❤️
