New Year, New Me?

Happy New Years!!!

I wonder if you are like me? With every new year I look back on the year that has passed and look to the new to see what changes I would like to see. When I was younger I would make grand resolutions for the new me. Over the years I have learned to love the current me.

Although one can always grow, and for me that has me looking for small improvements. I’ve kept my journals over the years and they are always fun to look back on. This year I have decided to choose a word that would frame the year ahead of me. This year my word is ADVENTURE!

At the beginning of each year, I look at the different elements of my life and see how I can apply my word to each of them. Personal ones such as my Physical Health, Mental Health, and Spiritual Health, and then also shared areas like Finances, Marriage, Family & Friends, Career, Home, and Community.                     

MIND

Goal: Live with open hands.   

Action: Not only lessen my need for control, but enjoy the freedom from it with the business and family (this one will take a little work!)             

BODY

Goal: Lose 30 lbs.

Action: This year I will be a little more adventurous in my physical fitness and in my food. Try new things and step out of my comfort zone.            

SOUL

Goal: Begin a focused study of the Bible.    

Action: Begin a daily quiet time.        

FINANCES

 Goal: Pay off debt.

Action: Try new avenues to pay off debt. I’ve never tried selling on Ebay or Facebook Marketplace. I will start there!              

MARRAIGE

Goal: More adventures with my husband     

Action: Monthly date nights trying new things together            

FRIENDS & FAMILY

Goal: More quality time with friends    

Action: Invite friends or family to try something new each month either out or at my home        

CAREER

Goal: Be open to new possibilities   

Action: Try not to do things because I have always done them a certain way. Be open to changes.            

HOME

Goal: Less Pinning and More Doing          

Action: I will start trying more of the things that I have Pinned over the years      

COMMUNITY

Goal: Look for ways to serve in my community.          

Action: Sometimes it’s better to speak up than to stay silent. I will.  

I’m looking forward to this new year and what it has to offer. I wonder what changes will come and what will stay the same. A new year offers so many new opportunities to grow, nourish and inspire ourselves and those around us. Tell me, what are some changes that you want to make? What worked well for you over the last year? What is worth keeping? Share with me in the comments below. And Happy New Year!
