One Week Down!
It is wonderful to have 60 goals. It keeps me focused on the many things I want to be. I want to be a supportive wife, loving daughter, giving mother, successful business woman, encouraging friend, lover of life, and most importantly--I want to be PRODUCTIVE with each breath I take.
So, this week I worked hard EVERYDAY on our memory verse, prayers for and with the kids, prayers for and with Nate. I failed at being in the Word everyday for a period of time. Yes, I said the memory verse, but to read to learn, I failed. I hope to be better this week.
Other goals were started, and work has to be a huge focus for the next 10 weeks. It feels so refreshing to start each day already knowing where I am headed this year. It feels wonderful to mark things off, make big plans and feel "organized" in my thoughts.
It has only been one week, but I can already feel a difference in my outlook because if something pops into my head and I think, "Oh I should do that..." I have great confidence in not being sucked into guilt or putting it on my to-do list if it doesn't fall in line with one of the 60 goals. Having a clearer mind has resulted in something I didn't expect. It actually allows me more time to reflect on my blessings and truly have a spirit of gratitude at all times.
Thank you God for my mom. I am thrilled to spend her 60th year bettering myself in her honor. Here's to another week!
