I’m so glad it is a new year! 2018 was great but it was just a lot of the same and I want to see some change in my life. Personal growth. I want to be better for myself, for God and the people I love so much. I am learning some things about myself. When I try to make changes I get defeated because if I don’t see instant change or if I fail even just a little I will give up. People say it takes 21 days to create a new habit. That is wonderful but 21 days seems like a long time to me. I know it’s not but if you are not self disciplined it is. If you have no staying power it is. I decided for 2019 I am going to make it easier for myself. I asked myself what can I do? Can I do something for 7 days? 5 days? Can I realistically do 5 days of trying something new that might improve my life? Yes I think I can.
I am going to do 5 days. If after 5 days I like it and I feel good I am going to go to 7 days and so on and so forth. 2 days at a time after the fifth day. Not to much commitment, right! I know I might sound like a 7 year old but honestly I am a 7 year old inside of a 47 year olds body. This is my life.
Today I am staying focused on God’s love for me. It seems like a good place to start. God said we are priceless and his children. I just want to lean into that for awhile. Let it soak in and fill me up.
