February 2019, one step at a time


January 2019 has gone by slowly. It was a month filled with promises to have a successful year.  It was a month packed with enough determination to become a better version of ourselves.  As I am looking at my goals, I am pretty pleased with how things went this past month.  That does not mean that I have achieved all that I have planned.  I am in a better place than I was yesterday.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a simple step. Lao Tzu.

Every day, I am making a conscious effort to stick to my plan regardless of the circumstances around me.   There are things that I can change and there are things that I have no power over.  Therefore, I can only focus on what I can control.  As long as we have the will to take that first step and continue to move forward, soon we will realize, we are reaching our destiny.

Only those willing to walk through the dark night will be able to see the beauty of the moon and the brilliance of the stars.  Socrates

I want to continue to progress toward my self-growth.  I don’t want to do it alone.  I want to take you with me on that ride.  Are you still there?  What are your goals for February?  How do you plan to achieve them?  To me, a daily reminder is crucial, and my vision board is near my bed.  Every morning, I wake up with gratitude and knowing that I will do something to bring my dream to reality.

The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are movingJohann Wolfgan Von Goethe

The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.  Tony Robbins

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaningOprah Winfrey

Most people overestimate the risks and underestimate their potential.  Paul Martinelli

I hope you are still looking for ways to fulfill your dreams. There are days that everything will seem impossible.  I just want to remind you that you have all it takes.  Break your big goal down into small steps. Every day, we will take one step together. Little by little, you will see that your big dream is coming to life.

Have a blessed and successful month of February 2019!


  1. I think you are well on the way to a great path of success. Self-reflection and personal growth are so important. We all have all we need inside us. Have a great 2019! xoxo S.

  2. I want to work on my vision board. I have a lot of goals for my blog and my personal life. I am taking steps to make sure I do something every day that works toward my goals. I like the idea of breaking the big goals into smaller one.

  3. I try my best to reach my dreams. Although I know it is impossible now, at my age, I never set it aside. It is still a dream and who knows one day I will be blessed with a miracle and this biggest dream of mine will come true. Self improvement, working on my confidence level, and loving my own self are the most effective ways I can achieve happiness. “No mud, No lotus.”

  4. I want to work on my blog, I will be collaborating with my sister to create a logo or illustration- so that would be exciting! I also would like to work on myself and to find an exercise that I won’t easily give up! ?

  5. February is the beginning of the yer. January was a trial run lol. Yeah. Goals and plans still on track and hopefully the month sees success. Then on to March…and the rest of the successful year.

  6. “Only those willing to walk through the dark night will be able to see the beauty of the moon and the brilliance of the stars.”
    I needed such a quote right now that things feel so overwhelming for me…too much to do mean. And again, just one step at a time!

    • Roseline, sometimes, it is important, to pause, go back within oneself or in a peaceful place, to gather all the necessary strength to grasp life with both hands.

  7. It sounds as if you are definitely on the right path for 2019. Just one step at a time, and like you said, there are some things that are out of your control so just focus on what you can be in charge of – you’ve got this!

  8. Your first quote, “the journey of a thousand miles…” always holds a special place with me. My husband quoted it when he proposed, asking me to take the next step with him! I am the same way, that January seemed like such a long month, and though I didn’t accomplish all of my goals, I did really well on them and made some good strides to get me set up for a more successful February.

    • I know you will have a more successful month of February, Stephanie. Thanks for sharing your beautiful story, it makes me smile. May both you and your husband continue that beautiful love journey with many more blessings.

  9. In this February I just wanted to go away from the crowd and stay away from everyone to calm down my mind. I want to travel a lot because travel helps me calm my mind and it’s good for my mental health. also I want to save a lot of money and do whatever I like.

  10. Great job with being consistent with self-growth. I feel like I stalled with mine as work is just eating me up literally. Tomorrow is the day is when the parents come and watch my class and I have a dragon mom who wants me to teach everything to her daughter. I just can’t do it anymore.

  11. Love your notion of bringing us along with you! I am working hard on consistent small gains. For example, even a hundred words of average writing is better than no writing at all. 6000 steps may not be 10k steps, but it is better than 4k. I get hung up on perfection, and so my biggest challenge is to push through “done!”

  12. I am in the same place as you are. A lot to mull over. Completed a 3 week Daniel Fast and trying to not go crazy with old sugar/caffeine habits. I am grateful for what is and working it other issues…
