Navigating a New Year

Jan 05, 2023

Written by Valynne Underwood

Whew!  2022 is over, and 2023 has been presented to the world. 

A new year always comes with so many feelings of hope, excitement, joy, relief, anxiety, worry, and troubling emotions.  Events happened in 2022 that were a veritable smorgasbord, a feast!  Some events you would classify as wonderful or even life changing while others will definitely be a hard pass-a no thankyou repeat of this one!  Questions make way to the forefront of the mind full of the unknown which always asks: What will this year hold for me?  Will it be better or worse than last year?  What will life look like a year from now?  Will all be well in my life?  Will there be more moments of good rather than bad?  Who will still be involved in my life?  Will I remain healthy?  Will my weight go up or down?  Will my family circle increase or decrease?  The same question goes with my friend circle and we haven’t...

Oct 20, 2020

Whatever pain you might be experiencing right now—whether it be physical illness, anxiety, depression, a struggle in a relationship, the loss of a loved one, whatever it is, I want you to know that YOU CAN HEAL!

The first step toward healing is always BELIEF. So if you need help believing, this is how to start: spend time every morning envisioning it. Close your eyes and imagine what you will feel like when this pain you are in is resolved. What do you look like? Sound like? Act like? What do you do with your time? What do you have?
