People like I set resolutions this time if year. Last year Mine was to buy more active wear and be inactive in it. I’m serious, and I did that. But then I broke my goal and took up running. Do you sense a theory here? I set a goal I knew I could reach, and then I realized I’m made of more than that. What I love I must do. I need goals to reach, and setting real goals is important to me this year; more than any other year.
We should all set the goal of moving forward. Whatever you have dreamed of doing and have never done, why not give it a shot? When I was a teenager I first believed myself a writer. I never knew if I was very good or not; all I knew is that every word I wrote needed to be as true and real as I could make it.
I have never stopped writing. Even after I became a Christian and my writing changed dramatically, it never stopped. I just love it, and I just need it. I have to write whether anyone cares, whether or not I’m great at it, whether or not I feel like it. I must write because I’m a writer.
My resolutions, goals, whatever you want to label them include making some solid plans. I want something to reach for, even if it feels impossible or too hard. Dreams are only made true by taking action.
1. Get Josie’s book published- However this happens, I’m spending this year to focus on this.
2. Keep blogging- 2-3 times a week is my goal: Be consistent and have something worthy to say.
3. Keep writing- about everything
4. Make homeschooling more fun- patience is usually the key here; along with a sacrificial perspective.
5. Expand the farm- time to take it up a notch around here
What are your goals? Write them down and make them real. Don’t hid your gifts, talents and interests. God created us the way he did for a reason. What’s yours? When you’re passionate about it, you won’t give up.
