Yes, that’s right… we are expecting this to be the “Best Year Ever” in our home (BYE for short). I have never been one to make silly New Years resolutions because they are always dropped within a couple weeks and nothing ever really comes of them other than regret and disappointment in yourself. I don’t need that ;)
However, this year my husband and I came across this course called “5 Days To Your Best Year Ever” by Michael Hyatt. He designed it for “busy, high-achievers” like me… well at least that is how I would like to think of myself. My past is spotted with holes of unrealized goals because life just “got” in the way. In reality I haven’t found the right thing to keep me on the right track. I had never learned how to plan, create real goals, and I had never learned how to put those goals into workable action. That is where this course comes in and it has been amazing.
Yes, we just started this the first of the year, so no we haven’t seen the end results yet, but after all the work we have put into this I believe it will be our BYE because we now have clear have working steps for every goal and more importantly, our reason WHY. I will be sharing about our walk throughout the year, as well as about aspects of all of my goals I have set for myself. Some are personal and fun, others are serious! All are good. I may not hit them all… but I will never reach them if I never try and I never have a plan to work.
Here are my goals for this year… of course simplified for this blog. ;)
- To cultivate a stronger and more pure relationship with Jesus so I know His voice better and I will follow Him no matter what.
- To cultivate a more vibrant and Godly marriage.
- To pay down debt.
- To get healthier.
- To treat myself well.
- To read more books.
- To be a better mom and homeschool teacher.
- To revamp my blog and write again.
- To improve my hand-lettering.
Now of course my goals in my workbook are much more specific with great action and purpose. What I just posted is very general and if they were left that way wouldn’t get accomplished because they are ambiguous. That is why I love this course, it gets you into the meat of the matter.
So, as I blog this year, the things in my life that fall into those categories will be on the list to share.
What changes are you making this year? Like Michael Hyatt says, “Nothing great ever happens in the comfort zone!”
Here’s to our Best Year Ever!
