Is anyone else struggling HARD with the fact that Christmas is already over?! I just really can't believe it. Part of me has the after-Christmas blues. The other part of me is so excited about all that the new year has to offer.
2016 wasn't a bad year, but I know that I could have made more out of it than I did. I know I could have grown more in every aspect of my life. There are some components of 2016 that I am proud of. Others, however, need reforming.
There are so many things I want to accomplish, and so much hope that I can do it! I know most of us will have a resolution or two, and I'd like to share mine with you, friends.
Lose WeightLast year, I followed the whole idea that I have to have a specific, concrete goal. I thought I needed to name a certain amount of weight that I wanted to lose. But I failed miserably and gained weight. I was so focused on all the weight I needed to lose that I didn't take little steps.
So this year, I want to work extremely hard to lose a little bit each week (even if it's .5 pounds) and be happy- no, excited- about that. I want to celebrate the baby steps.
Practice Saving MoneyGuys, I've talked about this before, but I am the world's worst with money. I want to be a good steward of what I have, yet I am constantly buying junk that I don't need, or feeding my serious addiction to Chick-Fil-A (which doesn't help with weight loss either...).
Again, I am not going to set a specific goal, but I would like to add a little bit to savings every week, along with making sure we are tithing (more on that to come).
Live by my Word(s) of the YearI actually have two words of the year. I will be sharing one on Wednesday and one on Friday- so get ready peeps!
Create a Devotional ProductI already have a freebie planned to launch during the first week of January (So be on the watch) but I would also like to launch another freebie along with a paid product by this time next year.
I actually had planned to accomplish that already, but I kept avoiding it. This year, I WILL do it!
Create an Email NewsletterI want to bring REAL encouragement and REAL value to your inbox each week. I want to create a newsletter that you genuinely look forward to receiving and that doesn't just feel like something else to take up space.
Again, that is coming very, very soon!
Grow Each Social Media Platform by 1,000
I don't really know if this is realistic in my niche or not, but I'm going to try. And if we aren't social media friends yet, let's fix that now. You can find me on:
I'd love to be friends, so don't be shy!
