LIVE: Ok, so I’ve been slacking on this blog post thing 😉 Not intentionally, life has just been crazy busy! But things have been good! Crazy to believe the first month of 2016 is nearly over, where does time go? I’m sure many of you have made some new years resolutions, I’m all about that Not because we make goals once a year we hope to keep and beat ourselves up if we don’t ha, but because it’s a great way to evaluate and reflect on what we want for ourselves, our families, in the days and months ahead. And yes, for making goals too
LEARN: What have I accomplished this last year in 2015? What am I willing to work for in 2016? 2015 was a life-changing year for me for sure. I got engaged to my best friend, married, traveled (a lot!), moving to a new area, found new passions, was challenged and tested in new ways, and was also able to reach some of my health and fitness goals. It’s crazy to think how each of our decisions lead us one thing to another… Ok, maybe it’s not THAT crazy haha. But I feel so grateful that through each struggle, through each hard time, through each decision I’ve made I’m here today. I’m sincerely thrilled for this new year, for 2016. To be able to mentally, physically, and spiritually prepare for new adventures, challenges, and experiences. To continue to grow, to develop increased faith and courage, and to be a little bit better each day.
BECOME: This year, 2016, I want to be more loving towards those around me, to help others, have success, continue to focus on my health and well-being, to develop friendships, to become spiritually stronger in the gospel, to be more Christlike really. Listening to General Conference talks in the car recently there was one that I really enjoyed, centering our lives on Christ. Amidst all the craziness and things I can do in this life, I know that blessings, success, and increased happiness will come the more I focus outward than inward, the more I strive to think about Him throughout my everyday actions. Less talking, and more doing! New year, new opportunities to BECOME a better version of ourselves. Here we go!
