My Style Journal: Keeping It Kosher

We are a few days shy of bidding farewell to 2019 and ushering in 2020. Personally, I couldn’t be happier because this year was hard, yes I was successful and more visible professionally but personally, a lot happened. However, I am ready for every moment of greatness that 2020 has in store for myself and my tribe (of course that includes you, sis)!

For most, the New Year is a reset, it is when most people set new goals, and add tools to their lives that will produce successful results. As I prepare for an amazing 2020 both personally and professionally, I am participating in one of the newest New Year’s trends. I am adopting words that will aid me in manifesting greatness in 2020. Now there are many words that I can relate to in regards to the goals I plan to achieve in 2020 but the words abundance and kosher are two that sum up what I am praying for and how I plan to move forward.

Not to get too churchy but your girl has been working hard and praying harder for a long time. I have planted so many seeds and I am declaring this will be the year I reap my greatest harvest. I am talking blessings so great that I can’t possibly keep them to myself. Why abundance? Duh, because I want to be a blessing to you and an abundance of good favor allows me to do just that.

ko·sher/ˈkōSHər/ adjective genuine and legitimate. “She consulted lawyers to make sure everything was kosher”

No, I am not changing my diet or becoming Jewish but I do intend to keep it kosher. I know one thing you respect most about me is my willingness to be honest and transparent. In 2020 I will be delivering more of that because I know that it is what women and girls need. So yeah, just know that despite the situation, everything is kosher and it will stay that way.

So, tell me, sis, what word are you adopting for 2020? Oh and to assure that you give it some thought and share, I am gifting one of you an amazing luxury planner that will help you write your goals out and reach them.

    I am a big, black beautiful woman. This year has been a trying year for me. In 2020, I plan on being the best me I can be. I had to learn to put me first and not feel guilty about it. I’ve had to learn to let others and their opinions not suck the live out of me. So my words for 2020 is soaring heights without fear, letting my bbb self shine, and to not care what anyone thinks about my size and be positive. I love your confidence and it inspires me so much. ❤️💯
