Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you have had a fabulous Holiday season and feel refreshed, recharged, and ready to dig into your new year. I’ll be honest. I’ve been struggling a bit to feel ready and “all pulled together.” I feel like I’m already behind and we just started!!!
Do you happen to feel this way too?
Sometimes, I feel like I need to have everything in place. A perfect plan. All of the steps need to be laid out and scheduled on my planner. All the little questions filled out with deep, profound personal goals.
Want to know a secret?
You don’t have to have it all together.
Seriously. While it is good and helpful to have a plan, there is no deadline saying you’re too late or oh well, you’re seven days in and haven’t changed anything…. might as well not make any goals. The year’s a bust.
That drag and uncertainty has weight. It’s called resistance, but it can’t stop you from starting anything. In fact, sometimes just starting will be the very thing that pushes that resistance back and allows you the freedom to figure out exactly what you are supposed to be pursuing.
So, let’s quickly brainstorm what you can start today.
Does your body feel tired, run, down, or heavy?
If the answer is yes, commit to our new support group. We’ll help you create a plan to work towards more energy, better, sleep, better nutrition, and a body that functions the way it was designed.
Do you feel depressed, overwhelmed, or confused about your feelings or purpose?
If yes, commit to seeking a counselor, Bible study group, or life coach.
Do you want to learn more about something?
If yes, commit to researching it, joining a class, or asking someone to be your tutor or mentor.
Making the decision to actually start and then applying action to that decision is often the most difficult part of the process of changing anything. Can I encourage you to just choose something and make the commitment? There are so many different opportunities out there waiting for you.
All you need to do is start.
