As a #NewYear dawns on us, so does new hopes, aspirations, and resolutions.  With each comes an invigorated spirit of excitement and dedication, but unfortunately by early February, many of us have loss enthusiasm or completely abandoned the plan.  Thinking of what I hope to accomplish to do this year, I must say I have an aggressive list of things I would like to accomplish and although each is very achievable, it will require discipline, proper time management, and continued prayer.  

No matter what resolution or promise you have made to yourself or others, remember each day is its own opportunity.  Start small and work toward the big stuff.  You did not gain that weight overnight, nor will you lose it overnight; it took longer than a week to accumulate the clutter in the house, so do not think you will blink your eyes and it will disappear either.  Obtaining goals are more about the process than it is the timeframe.  Anything that is done consistently becomes habit and habits become building blocks.

Focus on building good habits and watch the #ToDoList check itself off.  And if you are having a hard time figuring out where to start, please take a moment to look over #30ThingsYouMightWantToStartDoingForYourself by Darryl Ricardo Matthews, Sr – @32ndGP.  With any endeavor, it is always good to begin within and these 30 reminders are essential building blocks to life goals!

No matter what this year holds, do not lose hope and do not give up.  Remember each day may bring its own obstacles, but it also presents new opportunities. (more…)
