Well guess what, the New Year is almost here. I have spent the last 2 months trying to end the year stronger. My goals revolved around going to bed much earlier, building a stronger relationship with God, eating better, exercising more and eliminating distractions
My motto in life is this..."As long as you are alive, you can change!" I truly believe this for myself and everyone else. It is this motto that will allow me to celebrate the progress I made the last two months and remain hopeful in the areas where I was not successful.
I can celebrate the fact that I have spent time with God everyday since beginning this journey and he has spoken to me on many occasions. I'm challenged by the fact that I never made to bed at 10:00, came close a few times but never 10:00. I'm wondering if I set my goal to high, I still can't decide, 10:30 was much more doable. I have eaten better but been inconsistent with working out. Waking up at 5:30 was easier the 1st month, when December rolled around with many challenges from work that included late nights and long days, going to bed and getting up became much more challenging.
Having said all that, having had some victories and some defeats, I'm excited about the New Year. I honestly can't wait to see what it brings and what I bring to it. I'm looking forward to conquering my thorns. I'm most excited because I'm ALIVE, which gives me hope because it means I can change! So if you are reading this you too are ALIVE and you too can press on toward your goals.
Best wishes and Happy New Year!
