New year, new me? Not quite. First, happy new year! We are in 2021 and I am so happy and grateful for the gift of life and that I get to experience 2021. It is indeed a privilege to be alive today and I am happy that I get to share a few words with you.
So, no new me this year because old me makes me who I am so I am not becoming a new person in the new year but I am going to learn from old me to grow in different areas of my life. I used to write new year resolutions and of course by the end of the first month I wouldn’t even remember what I wrote down. So for the past few years, I do not write any resolutions that will totally transform my life but I do a recap of the year and write down specific goals that I want to achieve. I try to make them SMART goals ( S- Specific, M- Measurable, A- attainable, R-relatable and T- time focused). However, I have learnt to take each day at a time and that is what I am going to continue to do for the rest of the year.
In 2020, I wrote down some goals and I would look over them throughout the year and at the end of the year I realized that I could tick off most of the items on my list. I was so proud of myself because these were goals that didn’t require a complete transformation of myself but rather a step towards growth and I am so glad that i was able to work on most of them. For the one’s I did not achieve, I didn’t transfer them to this year’s list, I analyzed them and assessed where I am in life right now and decided that this was not one I wanted to work on this year…and that is okay. Police go, soldier come!
This year, I hope to live each day intentionally….because Lord knows I have so many lazy days….sigh… but I want to do better. I want to work on growing spiritually….I want to know God even more so if you have any amazing Bible study group recommendations, please share! This year I want to grow in God and do what He wants me to do. My mind is full of ten thousand things I think I should be doing but I want to do what God wants me to do…in essence, this year, I just want to seek first the kingdom of God. I pray that I am able to do this because there are so many distractions but I am going to give it my best shot! I am a firm believer that as I work on my relationship with God, all other things shall be added unto it.
So, no new me….you still get me but you get a growing version of me…you get a woman who is going to do all she can to be the best version of herself and pursue her peace at all cost. So help me God!
Again, happy new year! May the blessings of this new year be your portion!
