Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  We hear these words all the time at the beginning of a new year.  We hear them from friends, and co-workers.  We hear them from family members and associates.  We even hear them when we are shopping from cashiers, retail clerks and from managers.  For generations these three words have meant so much to so many yet...we enter the year with apprehension and doubts and fear.  We hear these words yet stay in meaningless and unfullfilling relationships.  We hear these words yet stay complacent and comfortable in our own little shells where we think no one or nothing can harm or change our present state.

Just saying these three little words will do nothing if we don't take action to make it a happy new year.  Just hearing these three little words will not change our present status or our present state of mind.  It won't change our living quarters or our job roles or change the people around us.  WE HAVE TO DO THAT!  If you are unhappy with your friends and associates, leave them.  Get out of that circle and into another.  If you are unhappy with your job, change it.  Do all you can to obtain another job in another field of work where you know you will be happier and if you need to get more education...DO IT!  If your marriage or relationship makes you unhappy...LEAVE IT!  No one is holding a gun to your head but in the case where you may be in an abusive relationship, it's not that easy but there are numbers you can call and people you can trust to help you get out of it.

What is it I am trying to say?  Well, simple.  In order for you to literally have a happy new year, you must make a move.  Make a change.  Make some different decisions and ACT ON THEM!  Nothing will change by itself or by you wishing it away.  Prayer does change things so pray about it, hear what God has to say about it and get to stepping.  If it means stepping into a new neighborhood, then step.  If it means leaving you current place of worship and going to another, then get to stepping.  If it means leaving those friends who do all they can to keep you down, then get to stepping.  In all of this, action has to take place and you have to be the one who initiates it.

Happy New Year to all of you!  Don't forget what I said...make moves...make changes...make decisions that lead to a better and happier you!
