Last year I followed my dad’s lead and decided on a word for the year. Simplify was my word for 2014. I’m not sure if I truly embraced the word in my everyday life, but I definitely thought about it more and tried to take baby steps to keeping life in perspective.
This year I am feeling energized and ready to take some big leaps. I always have dreams and ideas, but this year I want to set some concrete goals and really AIM for those specific things. As a creative person, I tend to jump from one good idea to another. I want this year to be more planned out so I can take specific steps to reach my goals. That doesn’t mean I’m going to lose spontaneity. There will be some risk taking if I want to reach my end goals. No more excuses, if my personal and professional dreams are going to become a reality, it’s going to have to be me who does it. I’ve always said I’m one of those folks who will “Die Trying!”, I just want my efforts to be more methodical and organized. Maybe I won’t see the results I want at the end of the year, but I don’t want to live with regrets. Our life here on earth is so short. I want to use every possible minute wisely.
I know that I am so blessed and live a life full of love, provision and opportunity because of Jesus Christ. I want my life to reflect my gratitude and love for my Savior. I can do nothing without Him.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your hear, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. Have you set some goals for 2015? I’d love to hear where you hope 2015 will take you.
