Before last year, I never knew how important my thoughts were to my success. No, I’m not talking about worldly success, but success in my mental and spiritual health. If you follow Fearfully Fashioned on Twitter, I tweeted that our thoughts are vital to our quality of life, and it’s true.
For most of us, January is a month of planning or testing. Some of us are just getting around to setting our yearly goals, while the rest of us are finalizing and testing them out. Either way, it’s an opportunity for us to start fresh, pursuing the things that matter to us most.
As entrepreneurs, we are inundated with so much information telling us how to run and grow bigger, better businesses. Every day there is more content being released, blog posts being published, and products being launched that vie for our attention.
Do you ever feel like you’re behind? Like you are far away from where you “should” be? I believe that too many of us are struggling to flourish in the season we’re in because we feel “behind.”
If you couldn't tell by now, I love January. To me, it represents a month of new beginnings. And although any time is a great time to set and start new goals, there’s something exhilarating about closing the chapter of a year and starting anew with the next.
How are you feeling about 2018? As I sat down in December to reflect on 2017 and prep for the year ahead, the one word that described my feelings toward 2018 was READY. Ready for a fresh start.
Where has the year gone?! I can’t believe that we are already down to the last month of the year! When I sit down and reflect on what all occurred in the last year, I’m truly in awe of God and what He has done.
Every December I get to the end of the year and wonder where time has gone. It seems like the months go by slow but before you know it, you look up and it’s time to enter a new year.
The holidays have always been my favorite time of the year. It’s the only time of year where we slow down our hearts to focus on what truly matters. The days get shorter, the air gets colder, and we decide to get after grateful surrounded by those we love the most.
I didn’t start playing the comparison game regularly until after college. I remember eagerly moving to North Carolina with all these dreams and expectations. Expectations of finding a successful new job, financial stability, and maybe even a shiny, new engagement ring.
