I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. I’ve set out to do this probably twice before, and I never completed the task. I feel so overwhelmed with the noise that’s all around us lately. So many expectations, so many unrealistic images of real life, so many times I’ve let others dictate my attitude towards myself and cause me to undervalue my self worth.
I need to say NO. I need to say NO everyday. I need to say NO to the things that are pulling me away from what’s most important in my life. I need to say NO to what’s not best for me.
I struggle with some things I’m not proud to admit. I’m afraid people may have an unrealistic image of ME, and I’d like to let you know I’m a human who fails daily and who doubts myself ALL THE TIME. I let the things I mentioned above affect me every minute of the day. I know this isn’t the life God has for me. I know that with all these “distractions”, I’m missing out on the best years of my life.
I feel like this is a big challenge for me, but this year I’d like to completely free myself of some things. Here is what I struggle with the most, and the things I’d really like to eliminate from my life:
- Doubt & Worry
- Mindless Distractions
- Saying NO to the Good Things
- Being “Busy”
- Negative Self Talk
- Complaining / Bad Attitude
- Other Peoples Problems
- Needing to be Liked / Making Everyone Happy
- Satan (the root of all these insecurities / problems)
Well, here goes nothing! My goal is to take one of the struggles above, and focus on it for an entire month. I’m really looking forward to what this year has in store for me. I’m hoping to becoming the BEST version of myself, and move forward every year living the best life I can.
