1. Life can get complex fast. If you don't weed out the unnecessary once in awhile, you'll find yourself swamped in the urgent and meaningless with no time for the important and significant. This is the American way. I'll be applying Stephen Covey's 4 Quadrants more than ever. Q1 is rare and unavoidable. I will strategically use Q4 to minimize stress, avoid/delegate Q3, and live in my strengths in Q2. 
Q2, this year, is the year of song writing.

2. Staying inspired is hard. I'm going to prioritize spending time around the people in my world that give me life, creativity, energy, & hope. Creativity is a muscle just like anything else.
It needs exercise, and proper nutrition. 

3. God created me to be me. I'm 100% ok with that.

4. I love my calling, my job, my career, my art, & my world. I've got my hands in a lot of things, and will continue to work as hard as ever at being excellent in all areas of my life.

5. The thief came to steal, kill, & destroy; but JESUS came to give LIFE, and LIFE ABUNDANT. My world is filled with beautiful moments & beautiful people. I'm not going to allow myself to be a glass half empty person. With Jesus, my glass if overflowing, and everyone is about to get drenched.
