On Sunday, while getting ready for church, I heard two words –
When something like this happens, everything in you comes awake suddenly.
Yes, there is doubt. (Did I hear wrongly? Was it really for me?)
But there is also hope and excitement. (Could it really be for me? Is this the answer to everything I’ve been praying about this year?)
You take the word, apply it to each area of life, and use it as your sacred filter for the next 365 days.
Finances – Don’t do anything hasty. Don’t let fear and greed rule your decision making.
Keep studying to increase understanding so you can make good decisions and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.
Business – Have you claimed a particular area of expertise? Stick with it. Keep watering it, even if it doesn’t seem to be bearing much fruit at the moment.
Don’t get distracted by what others are doing or by their successes. Stay in your own lane.
It takes years to be known for something, and if you keep changing lanes, you will confuse others.
Health – Do you really want to be fitter and healthier this time next year? Then start doing more each day to create the habits and routines that support that vision.
Drink more water.
Eat more fruit and veg.
Be consistent with the supplements.
Keep experimenting with the oils to see what works and what doesn’t. Let your actions speak louder than your intentions.
Schedule 30 minutes of cardio into your morning.
Community involvement – Bloom where you are instead of complaining about what is missing.
Focus on deepening relations, strengthening community, building systems and processes that outlast individual effort, and being a reliable and trustworthy person that others can depend on in times of change and transition.
