Happy New Year!
To be honest I have not been very optimistic about the new year. 2015 had a lot of drama and I guess a part of me felt like it was going to follow me into the new year.
Today, I heard Mary J Blige’s Doubt for the very first time. It was her performance with Taylor Swift and I was blown away. It was amazing to hear a song that described everything I felt and still found a way to give me strength.
I cannot even begin to explain how much this song means to me. I will be doing myself a huge disservice if I choose to keep living in fear. It will be very wrong for me to doubt my abilities and the things that I can do. Instead of making resolutions that I might break, I will give myself the ultimate task to always believe. It is easier said than done but it is a major way to conquer my fear.
There is so much that we can do. There is no point hiding in the shadows and living in fear. 2016 is the year to live your dreams. 2016 is the year to break free.

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I’d do it all again
‘Cause I made it to the top
But I can’t keep doubting myself anymore
