A goal that will last an entire year is not completely my style. I prefer goal-setting in small increments of time to feel the progress and success. However, this year a few ideas kept coming to the front of my mind again and again. If anything, they were more of God’s way of perhaps nudging me to focus a little more attention on these areas than I have in the past. That my friends, I just can’t ignore. My goals are more of a prayer that I hope to be more intentional about in 2017.
Time: “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” -Mother Theresa
At times I get so defeated because I have been working for hours and still feel like I haven’t accomplished anything. My goal is to start, stay focused, and finish the task at hand. I love checking things off a list. Using my time to start and finish one thing is a lot more rewarding than starting three things and finishing none. 😉
Down time: Whether it’s reading, sipping coffee, or creating, I need some more down time. Intentional relaxation to regroup and count the blessings around me one at a time. 🙂
Food: We ate a ton of real food in 2016. It wasn’t deliberate, we just kind of fell in love with it. But, post-holidays have me going through a sugar withdraw. 😉 Eating more real food is without-a-doubt on the list and a prayer of mine and something I hope to continue to share with you.
So in 2017 I hope my time is full of purpose and meaning, my inspiration from the world around me is at an all-time high, and all the sensations foods bring will remind me of the goodness and memories close to me.
Here we go, 22.214.171.124!
