It's been a long while since I've actually written down things I want to do differently in an upcoming year. Normally, I just have great intentions I ponder on in my head but carefully keep to myself as to avoid having someone actually hold me accountable. Things are changing and I'm trying something new.
So here goes......
My life gets crazy. Most of that is my fault. I don't say no. I over commit. And then I end up neglecting the things I really need to make a top priority. It's got to change. I look around sometimes and wonder why certain people never seem as stressed and chaotic as me.... Because they say no. It's not a magic secret. So my #1 goal is to get control over how I spend my time.
I joined Crossfit this time last year. I absolutely love it. However, I let my crazy schedule dictate my workouts. I have been most successful with working out when I make a weekly schedule and stick to it. And sometimes that means I say no to fun last minute things. And I live by a pretty strict schedule. But for 2016, health is going to be a priority and that's just how it will have to be. I also know that going to bed at a decent hour is key to having a healthy workout schedule. And I have to get my diet under control. So goal #2 is no excuses when it comes to these areas.
2016 is a year of trust between the Lord and I. It's that simple. I'm tired of stressing and worrying over things that I know He will take care of. And I'm choosing to trust Him whether it looks like it's going the way I want it to or not. Goal #3: trust.
So that's it. Nothing crazy. Actually they are probably all top 3 on a lot of people's list this year. If I can get a good handle on these three things, I know everything else will be smooth sailing.
Happy New Year! For the first time in a long time, I'm actually anticipating what this year is going to bring.
