Starting 2015 with a bang….or something like that

A couple of months ago I decided to draw a vision board. New Year’s resolutions have never really been my thing. I start out the new year with all this momentum and a month later I’m pooped out. No motivation whatsoever. I don’t want to follow through on things. I have come to realize if I want things to change, I have to create it. You can’t expect things to turn out differently if you’re unwilling to play your part to change. My vision board consists of four categories: spiritual, health, finances and career.
Spiritual growth is important to me because I want to grow in God. Reading my Bible and praying more is helping me with that. Also, going to church connects me His people. I’m not really a people person. I can totally keep to myself and that’s not neccessarily a good thing. How can I minister to individuals or groups if I isolate? Don’t get me wrong. There are moments where you need to be alone so God can speak and you listen. Then there are situations where you need to listen to God as He gives you instruction on what to say and how to say it.
My health has recently taken a turn for the better. Some events occured this past summer that made me take a look at my own life. I decided to eat more vegetables and fruits. I havent quite worked out consistently but I am getting back to it.
I decided too that if I want to one day own a house, I need to take the steps needed to do so. I’m paying off my deferred school loans and rebuilding my credit. Its so hard but I know it will be totally worth it.
My career is steady. I am currently a CNA and I am working part time in doing that. Still looking for another job that I can actually live on/off of. I think I’m almost there. Hopefully my job applications come through for me!
I’ve got a lot going on right now. Not complaining, just grateful for being to do the things I can. Until next time, take care.
