I have yet to speak in a while. I could say that I have been busy or that other things have occupied my life. I could blame it on my Winter Break from college and the need to take a chill pill, but the truth is that I haven’t been motivated to write.
I think within anything you might be passionate about, it’s good to take a break and come back refreshed and ready for anything.
In all of this, I have been thinking about the new year and those who strive and push for something to better themselves. I like to call the things I strive to do goals and not resolutions.
Resolutions have a bad reputation for being too much pressure and getting broken extremely fast. I believe that by thinking about things that I want to do and furthering my life through goals, it can only create a positive experience.
I am really writing down this list for myself to look back on, but if anyone needs to be reminded of these things when setting goals, here you go:
- Be anxious for nothing. Phil 4:6. Don’t live in the past or the future. Be present. Worrying will only make you miss out on the beautiful experiences in life.
- Don’t doubt yourself. You are capable of more than you think.
- Silence is okay. You don’t have to always be doing something. Take time to just breathe.
- Don’t pressure yourself. Your goals are important, but it is not the end of the world if they don’t come as soon as you expect.
