    Love. It. That little voice is crazy, and it’s time we take control of it. My motto has always been GO BIG OR GO HOME and I couldn’t agree more with every word of this blog! Congrats on a well-deserved win – it’s not easy to change that stupid voice from a negative one into a positive one! Cheers to 2013!

    Oh wow, Sonja, your blogs are always amazing but this one really touched me. Like tears & smiles all at once kind of touch. (I do post cat pictures, I’ll admit, but really trying to curb that habit :)) I’m so happy you have found your voice again :) and thankful to know you. Looking forward to following your 2013 & seeing where you voice takes you!

    “I’m not going to talk about what I’m going to do.

    I’m just going to go do it.”

    I think I’ve FOUND my resolution for 2013. Powerful words, Sonja.

    You know, Sonja – I check in occasionally and it’s always “the right time”. I’m still an unabashed resolution setter (and accomplish a fair amount of them despite popular opinion on doing so). And I do spew a few on the inter-web channels. I needed to hear this message today. Nice race!
