I'm usually very into my goal setting and vision planning when it comes to New Year's Day, but this year I took a different approach. I'm still setting goals, I just decided that I wanted to fully embrace Christmas and New Year's and spend time making memories with my family.
I didn't want to start some freak diet on January 1st because I wanted to celebrate that day and just chill with my kids and eat junk food and watch T.V. And I didn't want to start on the 2nd either because that was our last day with our Disneyland passes and I wanted to enjoy our favorite tasty treats while we were there.
So now, on January 3rd, I begin.
New goals, new dreams, healthy habits being restored that have gone to the way side with all of our holiday binging.
I've been thinking about my one word and just really freaking out a bit. Last year I chose Expectant. And I loved it. It was perfect because I was expectant for God to do amazing things and He did. Like always. So I guess I'm freaking out because I want my word to be perfect. Time to move on from perfection and just go with it, right?
So, my word.
You see, I'm happy with where we have come. I am happy about our new beginnings. But I know this is just the tip of the iceberg. So this year, I want increase.
Not in a selfish way, but in an expectant way. Because that's what God does for us. He gives us the desires of our hearts. He increases all areas of our lives that are bringing glory to Him and I hope that that is what I do.
