I am not going to worry about "tomorrow" anymore, because worry puts us into a posture to expect the worse outcomes, and God has never failed us, and never will.  I have so much to be thankful today.  

Instead of bracing for the worst and living only on defense, use the gifts that we've been blessed with, and plant seeds into others that need us, seeking the peace and optimism only God can give for the present, and counting on our Creator to make our tomorrow brighter.

It all started from an inspirational moment while on facebook;

It was back in January, thinkin' about how happy I was to make it to a new year and I let my fingers and thoughts run..."The new year stands before us, like a stage in a concert hall, waiting for us to perform and fill it with sound. We can play our part and share in the soundtrack of life by setting goals. One of my goals this year is to make a new song each week that will be a catalyst for collaboration, artistic integrity and community."   Apparently, one of those rare moments in the vibe, I was on a roll and wasn't done yet, and the post got frightfully longer...


"I encourage you to make New Year's goals - pause and listen within to discover what you'd like to manifest in your life. Tap what truly makes you wake up and see a new day. It is an affirmation that you're interested in fully living life in the year to come."
