New Year, New Me!

With just 15 days into the New Year I am feeling renewed and ready for the grind! It’s easy to sit around worrying about what would happen if you fail, but it is extremely counterproductive to not even try. I have to remember to focus on the things that I can change and to remain positive about the things in life that I cannot control. With that being said, I have so many things planned for 2014; I am looking forward to professional and personal growth!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'”

While I did not make any New Year resolutions, I have set some new high goals for myself that do involve the education of others. My commitment to raise awareness to dating violence has reached new heights. Dating violence is a community issue and I plan on making it one! I am actively planning three awareness events in the New York City area, one of which will take place on February 8th in Washington Heights. Things have been a struggle but they are coming along just fine.

Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday so I cannot help but to quote his words of wisdom and courage. The great activist said “If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” And I plan to do just that--keep moving forward.

2014, let’s go!
