2015 | My Year of REBELLION & Other New Resolutions

2015 Year of Rebellion & Other New Resolutions

To say that I am excited about this year is an understatement.  I feel like I am walking into my authentic self and that there is no looking back.  I am ready to RELEASE the past, FORGIVE fully, and pour LOVE into the present and future.

And so begin my intentions rolling into 2015.  I have a simple MANTRA for the year, an OVERARCHING COMMITMENT to REBELLION, and GOALS broken into 3 parts – BODY | Mind/Spirit | Business.

I can feel the energy in the air as I write this.  Its going to be a big year.  I’m buckling up, setting my intentions, and letting God do the rest.

… Diving in …

My Mantra for 2015:

Its simple, and only THREE words:

Release. Forgive. Love


My Commitment to REBELLION:

Does this sound severe?  It is.  Upon a lot of self reflection, I have realized that I place a great deal of importance on what others think and what I believe is expected of me.  It impedes my creativity and keeps me living in a place I can only describe as THE SAFE ZONE.  And to be perfectly honest with you, I’m sick of it.

Wake Up. Kick Ass. Be Kind. Repeat. - the brand market





I want to be true to this saying, and I want to do it my way. Every. Day.






I want the freedom to be exactly who I am and I’ve realized the only thing holding me back is me and my reliance on what I believe others think and expect of me.

So, I’m going to rebel against everything that keep me in a mental SAFE ZONE, and I’m going to rebel against untruths that hold me back from what I want to do, and I’m going to REBEL against anything that stands in the way of living authentically.

Rebel without a cause?  NO.  Rebel with a cause?  YES.

There will be fits and starts and some discomfort here and there as there always is when you are changing, but I also KNOW that this commitment to rebellion will allow me to SOAR into my personal legend, my destiny, my dreams.

So cheers to a year of freedom.  Cheers to a year of divesting in crappy mental safe zones.  Cheers to REBELLION with genuine cause and SOARING straight into God’s purpose over my life.


My 3 Goal Categories:

| Body |
  • Be active 5 days a week, even if only for 15 minutes.  Do Yoga at least 2 times per week (2 of the 5 active days) and by year’s end, I want to be able to do a head stand… all by myself.  Mental Strength + Physical Strength = a REALLY good thing.
  • Take an online guitar lesson once a week.  (Thank you, Center Stage Guitar Academy!)
| Mind/Spirit |
  • Push past societal and familial norms to bravely, and authentically be my true self.
  • Be an open vessel for God’s work – whatever it may be.  My prayer is that God will LEAD ME, GUIDE ME, & TEACH ME so that I may carry out the plans and purpose He has over my life.
| Business |
  • I am currently slated to be in two different bands in Athens, GA.  My goal for both these acts is to bring pure joy to the people that come to each show, to have ridiculous amounts of fun, and to make some money doing what I love. (I would love to get to the point where I am booked in at least 1 show per week or more!!!)
  • I’d like to have fresh blog content 3 times per week and I would love for one of those posts to be a video blog post.  Videography is a little scary for me, but I know I can learn it and gradually get better.  In addition, I want to continue building lucrative partnerships with businesses I believe in.  Hustle, hustle.  Hard work.  No risk, no gain.  THINK big, RECEIVE big.


So there you have it.  My intentions/goals/thoughts on 2015.  I am so excited and grateful to live and breathe on this amazing planet.  Thank you for following my journey, participating in my excitement, and sharing your love.

Should would could. DID - the body book.




Let’s make this year one that can be summed up by this picture.





I wish you LIGHT, LOVE, & PEACE,


Jaclyn Steele

  1. Release, Forgive, Love! These are great! I am thinking on each of the words. I love your goals and can’t wait to see what the year has for you! Watch for God in everything you do and you will be amazed at how much you see Him in everything you do! I struggle also with the “what are people thinking of me”, etc. Even as I write this I am thinking – will Jaclyn like what I am writing? 🙂 I recently wrote in my journal “Aha! If I am focusing on pleasing God, I can’t be concerned about what others are thinking of me or trying to please them. Pleasing others will be a natural occurrance because I will do for them as God is prompting me. And what they think of me is not my business. God thinks I am good and is pleased with me! So then the question should be – am I doing what God wants me to and what is pleasing to Him?” – I am very proud of you! I am so glad you are discovering these things at the age you are. It is much harder to change thought processes the older you get! You are on the right track. I love you!

    1. Aunt Ruth-

      I LOVE your comments. They encourage me to keep going! Its such a treat knowing you are reading my blog and we are learning and growing together. God led me to this point and I have no doubt He will continue to show up in every moment. I am keenly aware of how deeply blessed I am to know such a God and to be loved by Him.

      Also, cheers to not worrying about what others think! As long as our intentions are pure, that is all that matters. Thank you so much for your feedback. I am loving it. Also… book club is coming!!! – I’ll keep you posted!
