Happy New Year!
The New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start in our lives. This fresh start can be in any area that may have been a challenge in 2018. We can now put those challenges behind us and look for ways to ensure that in 2019 we will, not only make a fresh start, but find new blessings in doing things a different way.
I am not talking about resolutions which usually are forgotten by the end of the month, but a commitment to take the challenges in our lives and make them opportunities to do something, not just differently, but better.
Let’s say 2018 was a year in which we were overeating and eating too much junk food, or being inactive and watching too much TV, or being disorganized, or being too self centered – the list can go on indefinitely. Rather than take on more than we can possibly handle – and, therefore, setting ourselves up for failure – pick one shortcoming and work on that.
Take it ONE day at a time, ONE pound at a time, ONE drawer at a time, ONE thing rather than EVERY thing. When we do this we are focused, single minded, and setting ourselves up for success!
Please do not waste time on wishing things were different or better in 2018. Put it behind you and move forward into 2019 with hope, energy, and prayer.
When we do this, opportunities will appear and we will find the inner strength and guidance to do what is ours to do to make 2019 a year to shine!
