In honor of my “Word of the Year“, P-A-S-S-I-O-N, I’d like to share this quote from Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, author of Lean In, and overall empower-er of girl power in the workplace.   I choose the word passion because I resolve to be passionate in my thoughts because thoughts become actions before they become habits.  Imagine how divine the year will be once I am consistently and  habitually passionate about things that require my time (i.e. financial goals, career, self-improvement,and love)…just to name a few things one can be passionate about.  The focus and elevated motivation will help this new year be my best year! #SMCYearofPassionpassion pt 2
