Preparing For 2013

December 24, 2012 at 1:55 PM

Dear parents & students:

Serving in the duel capacities of a man of God and a public figure, I write in ways that address natural and spiritual needs.

I must reiterate that all of the letters I write reflect my own opinions and not the expressed opinions of my colleagues. 

(I needed to make this statement clear, I'm legally obligated to do so.) 

As you know, we are approaching a new year. With this new year comes new challenges, goals to set and accomplishments to win. 

I feel strongly about this new year. I believe this year is going to bring new opportunities, new horizons and monumental feats.

We should only do one thing with the past, and that's learn from it. But we must not try to carry our past into our future. 

The definition of experience in my book is a combination of trial and error. We live and we learn. Its all apart of life's cycle.

But we can't be afraid to dream. We can't be afraid to adventure or to seek new ways to succeed. God gave us the ability to do it.

Seek not to enter this new year with a resolution. But rather seek to enter this new year with a realization of who you are. 

All the best for this new year!

Corey L. Teague

At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
