This time of year can be exciting and overwhelming. A new year has begun. We reflect back on the prior year with all its accomplishments and disappointments, all it’s happy and sad moments. Take time to reflect on last year. Did you meet goals you set at the beginning of 2019? If you did, take time to congratulate yourself. Set new goals. Start this year with a positive attitude toward doing something amazing. Doesn’t have to be earth-shattering, just amazing to you. If you didn’t meet your goals, take time to think back. What were the obstacles? Were they avoidable? Did fear or doubt keep you from moving forward? Maybe your goals were unrealistic? Whatever it was, it is time to reflect, revise, and seek revelation. This can be overwhelming, but be honest with yourself. Make a decision to make 2020 a year you can look back on and smile.
This blog began out of a desire to encourage others and myself to live a life of no regrets. As I write encouragement for you, I write it for myself also. Life is short. I want the rest of my life to be the best of my life. This doesn’t mean I want to go about life thinking only of what I want in life. There is a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when we make a difference in the lives of the people around us. In fact, according to the Bible, that is our main calling. I am just saying, if there is something you feel passionate about doing, pray for strength and courage to go forward. You can be an example for others who are struggling to do the same in their lives.
So right now, think about what have you always wanted to do? Is it something that is out-of-the -box? You may not always have support from the people around you. In fact, even the people closest to you may think your crazy. If you feel passionate about it, go for it. If it doesn’t work, you will learn from it and move on. Do not let the fear of failure keep from experiencing all life has to offer.
