I know I’m not speaking for myself, when I say that 2017 was a wild year. For some it was a year of so much good, but for others (like me), it was a year of pain, heartache, and complete confusion. 2017 wrecked me. While I could continue to harp on the unchanging past, I am choosing to press on, to leave all of that hurt behind, and to continue fighting in this thing called life.
I don’t know what you have in store for me, but I know what I have in store for you. For far too long I have lived a life of I wish, I would , I should, and I can’t. This year, I WILL.
I will love myself, every single part of me. Even the parts others might not find so cool.
I will keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, and won’t become distracted by the things of this world.
I will allow myself to rest, because I can’t go, go, go all the time.
I will surround myself with people who lift me up, and refrain from those who drag me down.
I will look my fears in they eye, and tell demand them to move. Fear no longer has a grip on me. Those days are gone.
I will start and end each day with gratitude. Even the really, really hard ones.
I will pursue excellence in all that I do. No more are the days of mediocre work fueled by procrastination, doubt, and lack of motivation.
I will get into the Word daily. I am so bad at this, but I SO need it. I vow to start each morning with a quiet time. Just me and Jesus.
I will chase my dreams, no matter how big or how small.
I will love deeply and boldly.
I will remind myself of who I am. A child of God, fearfully and wonderfully made in His image.
I don’t what this year holds, but whatever it is, I WILL get through it.
