Moving F.O.R.W.A.R.D. To 2017!

Driving on an empty road towards the sun and big black cloud to upcoming 2017. Concept for success and passing time.

Life is about moving forward. Every day is a new beginning; every month is a new start & every year a new dawn. As we enter in a new year, let’s continue to move F.O.R.W.A.R.D.!

F – Get rid of fear. This is one of my biggest issues. I have ultimate fear of what my future holds, but that doesn’t mean I should let it immobilize me (which I’ve been known to do). Pray, ask for help & face those fears head on so they will eventually be forced to go away.

O – be open to new friends, new opportunities and new adventures. What’s the point of living life if you can’t enjoy what’s out there?!

R – nourish relationships. It is of the utmost importance to take care of the people who take care of you. As an example, my friends are very important to me so I try to be the best friend I can towards them.

W – stop wasting time. I’ve got this “skill” down to a science. But nothing good comes out of wasting time – either your own or other people’s.

A – ask more of God. There is nothing wrong with asking – for ANYTHING! We’ve all heard the scripture, “Ask & ye shall receive” so why be afraid? There’s nothing too hard (or even too embarrassing) to ask God for. As a matter of fact, He loves it when we do come to Him. Besides, isn’t that what we’re supposed to do when we need help anyway?

R – read more. I can’t say this enough – I LOVE TO READ. It is one of my favorite pastimes & doesn’t cost me a penny! Picking up a book has never done anyone any harm & is the best way to learn. *There’s a reason why the book is always better than the movie*

D – Reduce the drama. Life is too short to have to deal with unnecessary drama. While it may be exciting at times, too much drama can have a severe impact on your health & has the potential to weaken your closest relationships.

How do you plan on moving F.O.R.W.A.R.D. in your own life? I’d love to hear some examples; feel free to share in the comments section below –
