2013 is fully underway, but I’m still not completely back into the swing of things.
New Year’s fell on Tuesday, that meant my Knight didn’t return to work until Wednesday (that was after being on vacation for about two weeks), Prince Charming’s school started back Thursday (I’m sure those were two very productive days :/), so my schedule hasn’t quite returned to normal. Monday will be the day for the brand new start of a brand new year, a brand new month, a brand new semester, a brand new week, and a brand new day.
With starting anything new, old thing have to be given up. I didn’t really think about this until I read the For Your Inspiration blog today. Her three principals of letting go made a lot of sense.
Looking at these three truths, I have resolved 2012 is gone. Mistakes made are lessons learned. I will not wallow, worry, or wonder what other think about my short comings over the past year. This is the time to move forward. I am to look at what needs to be done, and make a plan to accomplish these items.
In fact, I should look at every day this way. At the end of the day, I shouldn’t see my unfinished task list as defeat, but as a review of what choices I should have made differently; what priorities I neglected and should focus on the next day. Every new day is an opportunity for success, but not success in self, but success in Christ.
With that said, I’ve decided my main goal for 2013 is: Set My Success in Christ.
So my January goal, and goal for this week in particular is: remove those obstacles preventing me from this success in Christ.
Removing these obstacles will be a continual process, but there are some obvious habits and routines that automatically come to mind. There are also some habits and routines that need to be added. I will spend this first week of January, and the first week of every month this year, making out an action plan for accomplishing this main goal in my life. I’ll work on finding a theme verse to. If you have a suggestion, feel free to post it.
I ask for your prayer and encouragement on this journey. It isn’t going to be easy.
