With new year’s resolutions floating around and most at the point already where they’ve given up or messed it up on their own, I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on mine. I have a lot of personal goals this year. I don’t know that any of them are necessarily a resolution, but I know the types of things that I want to accomplish this year.
That being said, I have seen so many people talking about becoming a new person. Or leaving the old me behind. I can almost guarantee that I’ve said things like this before. If I went back far enough in my social media, I’m sure I’d find it.
The truth is, I truly do love the me that I am. I don’t think that there is a way to become a new person. I think you have the ability to make changes for the better. I think you have the ability to shift and do things differently.
I realized pretty quickly that one of my goals is becoming the best version of this person that I am. I don’t want to change everything about me. I may have lost little bits and pieces of myself through motherhood, but those are pieces that were no longer serving my life.
I don’t want those pieces back. I want to add new pieces to become the person that accomplishes everything I have on my list. LimeLife has given me so much of my confidence back but there is also a new confidence there. One that I couldn’t have had because this confidence is in the mom I’ve become.
As new challenges come up, I keep finding myself amazed at how we can navigate new circumstances. I’m so proud of that. Not to say that we don’t have our moments. Obviously everyday is not rainbows and sunshine. I just honestly am looking forward to a year where I can dig in even deeper and pull myself through the pit of despair that was thrown at us at the end of last year. I know I’m not doing that alone. Jesus is pulling me up from that pit. Thank God I have the relationship with Him that I do. I would not have made it through this without Him and the people He has strategically placed in my life.
I hope you all had another great week. We’re looking forward to some snow fun this week! And to health. I’ve been down for about 9 days total but 5 really tough days. Praying we’ve turned a corner and luckily the kids are the picture of health! Let’s pray they stay that way! God bless you all! Thank you for your continued support!
