So I don't know about YOU but I have been having a FREAKING Fantastic Year So Far!
That's LUKE SMALLBONE of FOR KING and COUNTRY and me cheesing so hard!! YES!
Yes it is only February but I have literally been hitting strides with my goals in every area. Of course my year has not been without its challenges. *phew!* but Philipians 2:14 says to
Do everything without complaining or arguing
and that means "Doing Life"
Let's not even really get into the complaining or arguing part of that verse in this post cuz that's like me figuring out how to NOT scream while fire-ants dance around my feet .....let's just get right into How You can have a GREAT Year (so far) too!!!
First, What do you want out of this year?
If you're just content with waking up everyday and just "seeing how it goes".... I'm sorry, uhm.... I feel bad for you.... like just picturing that just made my vision become one zombie-like black and white picture. Womp freaking womp.
Soooooo What Do You REALLY Want Out of 2016?
I have quite an extensive list.
Most of it is between God and I but here, I'm feeling like Santa so I'll share some:
Travel a lot
$Save a lot of money$
Be So Excellent at work : )
G i v e B a c k
Get abs ! yes you will see my before and after picture! Awoo! **300 army voice**
And So far So Great ! I think the key is really knowing what it really is YOU not your
dad, best friend, sibling but what YOU want out of your year and then WRITE it down...
Habakuk 2:2 says "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it"
I write down all my goals and that process makes it either realistic or maybe not so realistic.... like for example....can I really lose 20 lbs in 3 months? yeah probably... Now knowing myself, will it stay off? yeah probably not. But if I make a step by step How-to... I find that I would rather make a lifestyle of eating healthy and having a routine fit lifestyle and that way I can lose and keep the weight off ...
Writing what you want down on paper, a board, a journal, makes goal-setting exciting...
It's no longer just a thought in your head.
Seriously, try it !
Finally....Pray about it and then just DO it...
Like I'm serious.
STOP talking about it already. Just take step 1. whatever that 1 is. For me, it's blogging at 1:17am in the morning and setting a "publish by" time. No more "Is this the right time?".... YES IT IS THE RIGHT TIME! I promise you that was a loving yell.
But yup, In summary :
1. ask yourself : What Do YOU want out of 2016??
2. Write It Down! - This will help you realize what is realistic and make steps
3. Pray and Just Do it ! - No procrastination. YOU Can Do This!
Until my next post, I hope you get to dreaming big because
2016 is gonna be a GREAT YEAR!!!!
