A Fresh Start
I love a new year. It's the perfect excuse to stop and pause and evaluate where you've been and where you're heading. Of course you can do it throughout the year as well but oftentimes we don't or maybe not as often as we should. We get caught up in the every day routine and busyness that we don't always give ourselves the permission to check in and make sure we're moving in the right direction rather than just going through the motions.
I love the fact that any change we want to make is truly within our hands if we are intentional about it and make the decision to make it happen. Oftentimes we are the ones holding ourselves back either out of fear, the thought that it would be too difficult, or perhaps we even feel guilty for pursuing our own goals because we're so busy giving our time and efforts to everyone else.
There truly is something freeing though when you take the first step, and then the second, and you begin to gain momentum in doing things you love, things to help you grow, and become more of the person you were created to be. You begin to feel more alive, more confident, and best of all - an inspiration to others.
So what is it that you intend to conquer this year?
