January 14th – Two weeks into the new year… How are your new years resolutions faring? I have to admit it’s a struggle to keep up on all of my goals for 2012. I feel like I’m in a battle with the ordinary responsibilities of daily life. Wash my hair, do the laundry, pay the bills…these everyday obligations are some real killers when you only have twenty-four hours in the day!
My new years resolution was simply to do something, just one thing, each day toward my vision of the future. Some days these little chores trip me up and overwhelm me, so I have to take a second to refocus on my goals. I’m stronger than this! Okay, the dust bunnies might win a battle or two, but I’ll be the victor come the end of the war. Don’t give up, keep your priorities in line, and stand back up when you stumble!
“Be proud of how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go.“
That’s been my favorite motivational quote since I first heard it during my 8th grade cross country season. That one-liner never fails to boost me up and make me think, “I got this; I can do it.” :) So I say it again, “I got this; I can do it!”
