It is most definitely a new year and boy did 2015 fly by! With a fresh new year, so many of us jump at the sound of a fresh start. It sounds awesome, we get 365 new days to do something great, but so many times, after the first few weeks, we lose interest and things start to blend in again. I pretty much let that happen last year! Sure, things get crazy sometimes and life happens. I made my goals last year and tucked them away! I wasn’t seeing them everyday and they weren’t in my face.
As a result, not much on my goal list was accomplished. I wasn’t truly setting out with a plan each month and I wasn’t breaking those goals that happen over time with work down into smaller goals.
I heard something really interesting this morning as I was watching T.D. Jakes, A new life comes from a new mind. We can get a new year, but if we go into that new year as the same person we were last year, then nothing will change. You can buy a new car, but if you get in the car as the same old person, you will have the same experience.
Wow that speaks volumes and so much truth. I am grateful for that reminder to renew our mind. I actually got down with a plan, a friend and I actually. We were talking one night through facebook messenger and thought “what if we did monthly meet ups to plan our goals with other women”. We wanted something to change. We did not want to face another year as the same old person. We wanted to grab this life by the horns and become the women that we were created to be!
We had such a great time and many new friendships formed. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to waste any time on something that will hold me down. Its time to throw out the crap and go for what God has for us!
