Give Yourself A High Five!

If you are reading this that means that you have officially made it through the first two weeks of 2014, so give yourself a high five!

You have made it through another year. The time of reflecting on what you did wrong in 2013 should be over. It’s now time to focus on what you’ll do right in 2014. Have you set goals for yourself yet? Are you working on keeping those New Year’s resolutions that you made last month?

Last year was not a good year for me AT ALL. But I made it through. I’m still alive & haven’t been committed (not just yet!) which means I did something right. No matter how 2013 treated you remember that you have a benchmark on what to do for this year. Create your vision board, have some friends keep you accountable & get a prayer partner – you can do it!

There were over 2,500,000 people that died in 2013 & you were not one of them! Even if you’re having a rough beginning of the year you have another opportunity to change things. So focus on the remaining 11 ½ months you have left in this year & make it your best one yet!
