One Way To Start The New Year Right
January 5, 2017
For the first time ever as January 1st approached I truly felt like I was stepping into something new. Every New Year’s Day, at least those during my 20’s, has seemed like just another day. Another day of confusion and not knowing where I’m going or what I’m really doing. But 2017 has turned a new leaf in my book. I don’t know if it’s because I’ll be turning 30 in a few months but for the first time in my life I feel at home in my own skin.
I didn’t realize it at the time but my very first blog post (Be Brave. Have Courage.) would become my declaration for 2016. In everything I did I wanted to be brave and have courage and also inspire my readers to do the same. I reluctantly put myself out there and shared vulnerable parts of me through my blog and instagram feed. More and more poured out of me and I learned much about myself. I saw how closed off I tend to be by nature and how judgmental I can be. I saw bad parts of myself but I also saw the good. In 2016 I made the decision to be brave and believe in myself. I genuinely took on the challenge to “be brave, have courage”.
When I started blogging I felt like I had no clue what I was doing and, to be quite honest, there are times I still feel like that. I know I could have been better prepared when I launched my blog and done more research on how to gain more readers and so on. The thing is, though, when you first start anything how much of it CAN you really know? So I rid myself of excuses and all that had held me back and decided to just do it. I took the leap! And here I am a year later. It’s been a year of trial and error but I don’t regret any of it.
I have prayed and thought about what my word for 2017 will be. I wanted it to mean something and to challenge me even more than I was in 2016 and the word “finisher” was put on my heart. I have so many ideas and dreams and this year I want to be a finisher and see them come to pass.
I encourage you to think and pray about your word for 2017. You can’t finish something if you never start. The words we speak and believe are powerful and important. After all, God didn’t think things into existence He spoke things into existence.
“The tongue has the power of life and death.”
