Guard Your Heart, Everything You Do Flows From It

Since the new year is here, I get inside my head a lot and think off all the things I want to change. This is my first year in my 30s, which makes me feel like more of an adult and ready to make some changes. There is the obvious things, like my weight, my financial status (less debt), and things of that nature. However, this year I want more than that. Most of you know that I started RescYou back in 2009. Back then, I had a lot going on. Finishing graduate school, moving to Nashville, getting a job, and another, and another, getting fired, the rest..You know that story. Since being unemployed, I have had more opportunity to focus on making RescYou something, something lasting, something good. Not just good for me, good for the people.

I’m taking 2013 to make RescYou something that is beautiful for the people. I’m working with some great minds on marketing, really refining the mission and values, and most importantly planning my missions.

This is my heart. It has been for a long time, for a majority of my life.

I’m tired of running from things because I’m scared to be successful, because I don’t know what to do with that. My fear of success has hindered a lot of what I do in life. I believe it contributes why I’m still overweight, why I struggle with people being proud of me and also has hindered my relationships.

In 2013, I’m going to fix that. I can’t live my 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond like that. And I was also spurred by the recent happenings in TN. A law that I helped do research for, has been barred because the state’s attorney thinks it violates free speech. This law would give up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 dollar fine to those found guilty of selling juveniles online for sex. I have no words, yet, that are a good representation of the kind of woman I am. Right now, I’m pissed off. I’m angry for the girls, boys, women and men I know that I have been trafficked and are still being trafficked. My heart just hurts.

Needless to say, I’m not going to keep quiet. Seriously, they’ve just made me louder.
