Wow, can you believe that we have reached the fourth month of the year?
A P R I L
LAST MONTH, was incredible for me as it was filled with nothing but newness. I stepped out into the world with JENNASWORLDVIEW and the blessings have been flowing ever since. Thank you ever so much for the support, I received a total of 1,954 views across 38 countries. WOW, I am truly humbled and I am so happy that you have decided to keep up with me on this journey.
The month of April has quickly dawned on us and I have had to ask myself repeatedly ‘Where did the time go?’ and I know that I am not the only one. Today is the 1st of April 2018 and there is now 9 months left in this year. For some reason, this has me fired up with excitement and my expectations for the rest of 2018 are definitely on a high. You may think to yourself that 9-months is long, but I want to remind you that so much can occur in that time.
Where you are today, I can confidently tell you that you most certainly will not be there on the 31st December 2018. It takes 9 months for a child to be formed in the darkness of its mother’s womb. There are so many things that a child endures during that 9-month process before they enter into the world and take their first breath.
For the remainder of the year, let me challenge you to look at 2018 from a different angle. See it as more than just months in a calendar, but look at it as a developmental and blossoming process. Use these last 9 months to grow and strive toward achieving your goals.
If you already know what you want to do achieve, great. If you don’t, that’s ok try and have a good think about what it is that you would like to do or achieve. Most people are geared up in January with multiple new years resolutions that quickly fade away before the month is even out. I am guilty of this too, but that’s ok because I am running my own race. Unless I AM dead, there is still enough time for me to do, see, become and achieve and the same goes for you too.
Read this carefully, if you have already fallen off in 2018, I am here to encourage you to get back up and try again. APRIL is a new month and new season, that will give you the chance to do better and be greater than you were in the previous months. It is never too late to do ALL the things you want to do. Whatever your goals are you can still achieve them. Let April be a starting point to begin something new or finish off what you already started. Just as a baby grows in the womb for 9-months, you too can grow in the last 9 months of 2018 to give birth to your GOALS.
To help you look at the month of APRIL with fresh eyes, I broke it down into the following acronym
Accountability is about being accountable to others e.g parents, managers, friends etc about your actions. We are taught how to be accountable to others from a very early age but are not taught how to be accountable to ourselves until later on in life. By then, we have probably already caused some self-damage. If we don’t master the art of personal accountability, we are at risk of getting out of control. This April, I challenge you to work diligently at holding yourself accountable for your actions, responsibilities and goals.
Whatever happens in April, just know that perseverance is vital for survival. Whether good or bad things come your way this month, stay focused and push your way through. Obstacles and challenges are apart of life, just like celebrations and good times. When we persevere through things it helps to develop our character in so many ways. Do not be deterred by what may come your way this month, just keep it moving.
R – Reflection
It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, where you forget to stop for a moment to take things in and reflect. Reflection is a major key that needs to be practised on a regular basis. This month, be intentional about your personal growth. Practise Reflection. Practise Reflection. Practise Reflection. At the end of each day, dedicate 10-15 minutes to reflect on your day oppose to scrolling through the socials. Think about how you acted during that day, what you did, what you said or how you felt. Reflection can teach you so many things about yourself that you may have been unaware of.
I – Improvement
The process of improvement is to make things better. For me, an area of my life that needs significant improvement is my punctuality. This month I plan to make a conscious and practical effort to be more mindful of my timekeeping. Do you have an area in your life, where you would like to see some improvements? Have a good think about what this may be and then take it from there. Even if you mess up or fall off at your first attempt, start again and keep pushing through.
Love is the greatest gift of all. It so so powerful, so genuine and has the supernatural ability to transcend all things. This month, let LOVE flow freely to and from you. Choose to operate from a place of love and I guarantee you love will permeate all other areas of your life. Deal with others with love, speak with love, act with love. Remember what I told you in my Is Sisterhood dying, out here in the streets?post, showing love isn’t exclusive to the things and people you know and like, aim to show love to all things and persons. Especially yourself.
Happy New Month, I pray that the month of April will be a month of unmerited Favour. May you soar to higher heights, throwing off the barriers of stagnancy in every area of your life. There is greatness on the inside of you and as the rest of 2018 begins to unfold may you strive to unlock your God-given potential.
P.S. There are lots of great new blog posts to come in the month of April so don’t go far.
