Introducing Nicci Kelly!!
Last year was a bit “cloudy” for me. I went through a lot of transitions and experienced some high points and low points. Dreams were put on hold and others came to reality. My faith was tested and my walk with God wavered. Many people believe this myth that because you are a Christian, you won’t have struggles or you do not wrestle with your faith…this couldn’t be further from the truth. I say all of this to say that there were moments I was on Cloud nine. I was blissfully happy and nothing in my surroundings could move me in a negative direction. I saw clearly what life had in store for me and I was ready to dive headfirst into the vision I know that God has for me. Then there were other moments…
…life situations that I allowed to happen and life situations that.just. happened

The world is full of distractions. Its hard to get a lot done or to even find some peace when your mind is cluttered with all the news of imminent doom or even with your own personal stress and inner conflict. Finding peace is something that many of us never accomplish, because we believe that focusing on the problem, will fix the problem.
Even more valuable than money or finding the perfect lover, is finding peace. When you achieve peace of mind, life becomes more clear and you begin to think with more clarity. The real question is “how do I go about finding this peace…?” There is no one size fits all answer but we can definitely trace it back to the beginning foundation…you.
Nothing in the outside world can hurt you, once you have found peace within. You have to quiet the mind first and then begin to do what I call…

Truly whatever arises in life is the right material to bring about your growth and the growth of those around you. This, in a word, is art — and this art called “life” is a practice suitable to both men and gods.

If you don’t like where you are in life, simply change it. At any moment in time, you can decide that this is not how your story will go and its truthfully just as simple as that. As adults we have grown out of one talent that is the key to our transformation…playing “pretend.”
What I love about children is that they have no ceilings, the moment that they make their mind up about becoming or doing something, they never give up until they find a way to make it work. Over time as we have grown older, we have allowed the opinions of friends and loved ones to dictate our limits. Our minds have been conditioned by society’s view of what its acceptable.

Now that we know this, we must stop…

My previous post referred to Habit 2 from the book 7 Habits of Highly effective people. I spoke about how Stephen Covey explains that we can all take action and re-script our lives. He suggests that we should all have a mission statement in life. They encourage you to think deeply about your life, to get clarity on what is important to you in life and your real thoughts and feelings. A mission statement will help to provide direction and provides the mental creation of your desired life.
I enjoyed doing my mission statement and answering questions I have not really stopped to ask. It was very interesting! To find out how to make your mission statement and get assistance Click here
For some of us this process won’t be too easy. Stephen explains that we live in a society, which is dominated by the left side of the brain…
