The Power of Declaration
Since the start of 2013, I have given each year a theme. The theme is a word or phrase based on an objective of personal development that I wish to accomplish. I establish a theme around November/December for the following year. Once I declare it, I forget about it and move on with living my life. I don’t take the time to figure out a plan. I just hope that once it is declared into the universe, it will somehow come to fruition and each year it definitely has in a big way.
2013- Year of Growth
This was a very tough year for me. Everything that could go wrong went wrong, but through all of the hardship I found myself and grew personally and spiritually. Not ideal, but growth is growth.
2014- Year of Impact
Created a fashion non-profit that changed lives. Also, became really passionate about mentoring and giving back.
2015- Year of Building Relationships
I expanded my network like crazy that year. Joined a sorority, became a member of MLT, Design Fellows Program, Honor Societies, Mentorships, Studied Abroad in South Africa, Student Ambassador, etc. I really put myself out there.
2016- Year of Building My Brand
Was featured in 3 Fashion Weeks in one year, resulting in a lot of press and clientele! DC Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, and created my own on the campus of UMD.
2017- Year of New Beginnings
New job, new vision and direction for my business.
2018- Year of the Comeback
Rebranding – Brittany Christina Collection and Fit For a Boss Blog
Year 2019 – The Year of Acceleration
After I graduated college in 2016, it took some time for me to get my footing on this thing called life. I’ve had some setbacks and had to learn to loosen my grip on my life and let it have its course. I’ve slowed down and took time to prepare and perfect my craft. Even hired a business coach to get me back on track. Now I’m ready to try again, FOREAL. It’s time to get back into the groove of things, which is why I declare 2019 The Year of Acceleration.
Moral of The Story
There is power in the words you speak, in the energy you put out into the world. You don’t have to have all the answers, and you don’t have to know the “how”. As long as you have a clear understanding of what your heart desires and you move with intention, the rest will work itself out. Your deepest desires are closer than you think!
I’m grateful for all of my experiences thus far, but I have to say I’m ready to leap into 2019. 2018, it’s been real.
Thank You, Next.
