New Year With New Possibilities
Wow, I can’t believe how fast time flies. I would like to say I was having fun but the last few months proved to be the most challenging time in my life. I had to step away from my passion of writing to tend to more important things that needed tending to. In the months to come I will become more transparent, as I feel my story may be able to help others out there, but for now I will just get back to what I love and that is everything “Woman” crafts, cooking, devotions, projects, and interesting reads.
I hope you had a great Christmas and are settling into the New Year. I know personally every year I like to reflect on what I did good over the year and what I could do better on the following year. I am a sucker for New Year resolutions, because they focus on making changes for the positive. I know resolutions take a lot of slack and many people don’t make them, because in less than 6 weeks the focus is lost and “we” the people settle back into our comfort zone. Well there is no wrong with your comfort zone if its comfortable but for me I love the feeling of being stretched and challenged.
As for me I try to make New Year resolutions for each of these areas of my life; emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. Each year I make four resolutions and I choose these areas because they are real, it’s not something that is far-fetched and these areas make me the person I am. So why not want to better myself each year?
This year my emotional resolution is to stay in control of my emotions in my uncontrollable moments! Sound familiar, some of you have read the book “Unglued” by Lysa TerKeurst, this book gave me great insight on how my emotions can control the outcome of so many situations. Lysa uses her witty personality and personal stories to make one feel as they are not alone in this world when their emotions seem to get the best of them. My other resolutions consist of physical, mental, and spiritual. So creating a healthy environment for my family, which consists of sitting less and moving more would fall under my physical. My mental would be using my brain to impact the lives of others and my family, so I have started writing a book. And last but certainly not least would be spiritual, if you have followed my blog you already know my relationship with Christ is my passion. So my prayer is to seek God daily and give him the honor and glory for everything!
Friends it is so good to be back and doing what I love. I hope that you will follow sassy2savvy.com and tell a friend. This week I challenge you to reflect on the amazing person you are and create some realistic ideas to better your life in 2013. Stay away from far-fetched resolutions and focus on little steps that will stretch and challenge you, these resolutions will provide growth that you will be able to see and reflect on at the end of the year. I would love to hear what some of your resolution might be.
