I have been thinking a lot about the upcoming year... there are a lot of changes coming for us. Many things we have been waiting for... hoping for... planning for... and I know there will be many surprises along the way. That is just the way life is.
I've been thinking though about what I would like this next year, 2013, to bring for me. What kinds of things I want to accomplish and see come to pass.
When I was growing up, my family would sit down at the beginning of each year, review our goals from the past year, and set new goals for the year, five years, and ten years. I want to do that again... for the first time in years I am going to set goals for myself. I'm excited about it.
I have decided, as one of my goals this year, that I want to adopt the word "grow" as my new mantra for the year.
Grow symbolizes a change, an increase. It is a postive uplifting word that allows for a slow change.
That is what I need... a slow change. Something that I can gradually adjust to. Something that I can work towards with out feeling pressure or stress.
There are so many ways I want to be able to grow... so many things that can grow in my life both physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually...
I can do this. I feel good about this.
Did you set any goals for 2013? What do you want to accomplish? How do you want to grow?
