Let Me Guess 2019 Is Going To Be Your Year Too, Huh...

It’s the beginning of December. Which means that 2019 will be here next week. Once we complete all of the Christmas shopping it is time to mentally prepare for 2019. I’m already seeing how everyone is claiming the New Year as THEIR YEAR. Mostly from people who said that 2018 was going to be the year (but that ain’t none of my business though).

I can’t front, I was one of those people. I entered 2018 with high expectations of what I was going to achieve. It would be the year that I was going to quit my full time job. I would be traveling every week to a new speaking engagement. And The Fear Hurdler would be a household name. At the top of the year if you remember I re branded with a new logo, website and was ready to take over the world.

By August, none of the things that I thought would come to life did. Instead, I was confused on the content that I wanted to post, no idea of what my signature talks would be, a sub-par launch of the #FearHasNoPower Movement, and only making a couple dollars here and there in regards to revenue from t-shirt sells. 2018 wasn’t looking good for ya girl at all.

25 quotes that will offer hope in the midst of a messy America

No matter if it’s social media, the news, or conversations in the workplace; it is tough to realize the state of our country.  Though we have never been perfect, it seems as though we have hit the gas pedal to a decline.  Whether it is another day and a new executive order signed, banning people, or alternative facts covered in press conferences.  The current times are tough and I can’t help but think of the battles that our ancestors had to fight.  No matter what obstacles stood in their way, they ALWAYS found a way to overcome.  It gives me hope knowing where I come from and the strength that resides within. 

Here are 25 quotes to remind you that you will come out victorious no matter what lies ahead of you.

2.       "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.  We are the change that we seek." – President Barack Obama

3.       "Freedom is never given; it is won." - A. Philip Randolph

4.       "It’s up to you to be responsible for how you feel if you’re not happy.  Your happiness lies in your hands.  You can’t rely on a man to make you happy or complete you.  That starts with you." – Taraji Henson

5.       "I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear."         - Rosa Parks
