I don't know about you, but I love the start of a fresh new year. It brings with it new and fresh energy and I always feel inspired by it. So my question to all of you is this: what are your goals for the new year? I personally don't believe in resolutions because they seem to be an easy set up for failure, but goals, now that's another story!
I have decided to put my focus on growing in my spirituality, and most specifically my faith. The last two years have put a bit of a strain in my reliance upon my Higher Power, and I miss the connection and the feeling of trust that I once had. This time has been challenging for each and every one of us, regardless of where you fall on the issues at hand, and I know that the more I can lean on my faith, the easier things become for me overall.
Another goal of mine is to stay in gratitude more. It has always been amazing to me just how powerful gratitude can be. I think it has something to do with the idea that what you focus on increases. If I am negative and looking on the dark side each day, I will most likely receive more of the same, but if I am living in a space of gratitude, then the universe sends me more to be thankful for. See how that works?
So my call to action for each of you is to write down some goals for this year. Nothing crazy, just jot down what you'd like to achieve in any or all areas of your life. Then move forward taking whatever steps feels best to you along the way. I promise you will be glad that you did!
