I am so happy to begin 2013. I am excited because I am determined to make this year a very productive one. As I look back over my life I realize that I have made changes over the years. But I also realize that a lot of stuff just happened and very few things were purposefully pursued. Especially lately. Being the mother of a young child sort of takes over. And for me personally, just trying to become a mother took every bit of my focus for several years leading up the the birth/adoption of my son. Now that he is almost 4, I am beginning to think about pursuing other lifelong dreams. I have a lot of them! What I know for sure is that without accountability, I will not progress toward achieving any of them. So, I am starting an accountability group so that I can keep moving in the right direction and to help other like-minded folks to do the same. I am also planning to blog about it regularly.
So, to kick things off, I want to share my guiding phrase for 2013:
"Expressing my love for my family and the community through serving and giving."
So for me, this means prioritizing service to my family and my community. I do both of these things already, but sometimes I do it because I see it as a duty, something I have to do. Now, I am doing it because I want to do it! . And I can tell you that it is already having an impact in my home and its only been 11 days so far!
I am so excited to see what me and my group of Goal Getters will accomplish in 2013! Pray for us and wish us luck.
Do you have a guiding phrase or word for 2013? If so, please share in the comments!
In the meantime, live out loud!
