“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” — John C. Maxwell


New Year’s Resolutions. Changes. Most often people will begin a big life change or mark where their path to that life goal begins, starting on New Years Day. A goal could be anything from wanting to eat healthier to, quit smoking, losing weight or even finding God! For each individual with a resolution, its a wide array of what they could be personally wanting to change or strengthen within their lives. As of recently though, as I’ve drawn closer in my walk with God and along my journey with epilepsy in my personal life, I’ve come to find that change doesn’t have to come at a certain date, such as December 31st. Change and a bettering of ourselves can come every single day. Every single moment. The ball is in our court.

What is the definition of a resolution?

Resolution [rez-uh-loo-shuh n]

Noun — A decision or determination 

Each of us have the decision and determination making power within us to make a positive change in our lives this very moment. Not needing a specific date or holiday to chart the course for our direction. It has been ingrained that we should all make New Year’s Resolutions and of course, I do reflect on what I would like to hopefully achieve and accomplish in the brand new year, however, each day I always like to think upon how I can better improve on myself physically, spiritually, emotionally and socially, and in all ways.

With each new day that I am blessed with, I look forward to discovering how I can make the world a better place for myself, my family, friends and those around me. It’s an inspiring daily resolution. This has always been a core value that I’ve held near and dear within me, yet when I became diagnosed with epilepsy, it ignited the flame of inspiration and motivation within me to embrace this on a much deeper level.

If you’re ready to make a big change in your life, if you’re eager to better the things that are happening right now in whatever situation you may be in, don’t wait. Remember, the ball is in your court. Each of us have the decision and determination making power within us to make a positive change in our lives this very moment. Even in the way we think. Swap out negative thoughts for positive thoughts starting….NOW.

Decide what you want in your life and go for it in a positive manner. No need for a date or a holiday if you decide.

    Since my surgery, transformation, running and writing of my book. I owe these miracles to GOD. I want to use my book and running to give back. I want to use my gifts to advocate with my story and organize distance races for Epilepsy awareness and research. I would love your help. I will have my book called “Running to a New Beginning_My Brain Rewired”. It’s about my life with epilepsy. Let me know if you would like to join me in this endeavor. I am hoping to get more media attention. Epilepsy awareness is less than stellar. That needs to end. We need a hard push. Hope to hear from you soon. You can also call me @ 9546323822. I am in Fort Lauderdale FL. Thanks for your support.
