new year, new focus
As I focus on a new year, I have discovered a way of resolution setting that works for me. And works year through! I love goals and I set them, but I'm not a big fan of resolutions. I think that when you fail, you just give up.
So, for the past five years, I have picked a theme to focus on through the year. So the past five years have been centered around:
Prayer (this was my theme for 2014)
And simply what I love about this idea is that it is SIMPLE!
In July, when the New Year's Resolutions are long forgotten, I can remind myself of the one word and re-center and it's just wonderful. I am far from perfect, but I like to know that my years have produced lasting fruit and I'm humbled to say that each year has been blessed with fruit. Thank you God!
So this year, I haven't decided on the one word quite yet, but I know I want to tackle a "First Things First" mentality...a time of focus on living what my priorities are. I can waste my time on things that don't matter or I can re-center my time on what truly matters to me.
Here's to 2015. Lord, I know you have amazing things in store. May I have open eyes to see and I pray you use me for Your Glory! Bless Your Holy, Precious, Perfect Name!
