2013 year end mashup for Karen Michaels Chicksinger! What a blessing of a year it has been! From our Little Man starting Kindergarten to lots of wonderful gigs with my girl group, Dangerous Curves and my own jazz band, The Special K Project, my studio, Chicksinger Studios growing leaps and bounds and starting with a new piano and voice teacher, this year has been filled to the brim with love and music and excitement from start to finish! In fact, here’s a fun little FlipGram of my year!
So, it’s time for the New Year’s Rez thing and although I admit to loving them, in the past few years I have been revising it a bit. Last year I did a word of the year and it was “Time”. I worked on adding more time to Mommyland and continuing my work of transitioning from working for someone else to working for myself! I am still in that transition, but it is coming to a rapid close. More about that here on Nevada Mama.
One thing I have definitely made time for this year is reading more. Not just any reading but “smart” reading. Through Bloglovin’ I have found everything from DIY, to diet info, crafts, writing, yoga and life as a Mommy. You can find the ones I like by looking at my list on my profile at Bloglovin’ but my hands down absolute favorite blogger, though, is Momastery‘s, Glennon Melton. Honest, brave and I find I agree with her on so many points. And, so because of her and her lovely, courageous words, my word and theme for this year is…
I will jump in with both feet.
I will jump to my families needs.
I will jump to my own needs, too.
I will jump to practice my music.
I will jump to be the absolute best singer.
I will jump to mention Jesus and God and all that stuff.
I will jump to have the most rocking’ bod I have ever had.
I will jump to improve my business.
I will jump to thinking the best of my fellow woman and man.
I will jump to defend myself.
I will jump to defend my friends who live their lives differently than others.
I will jump to show unconditional love.
I will jump to shut my mouth as often as I need to.
I will jump to say only that which brings uplifting, loving messages to those who hear me.
That’s a lot of jumping! lol! I am setting my sights hit and why not?
There’s no time like the present!
And, so…I want you all to know that truly I love you and I am so grateful to know you and share with you. I have many plans for my music and how I am going to share it with you. I am beyond grateful for all of your love and support. Let’s live our lives to the absolute fullest. It is a gift from God and we must use it as such.
Let’s go…let’s do it…let’s JUMP!!!
