Reducing Regret

As with every start of a new year, I am contemplating the many things I would like to do, change, try and/or stop.  My list is long and quite overwhelming, but it does speak volumes of my Personal Character Inventory & Action Plan. Yes, I have my very own acronym that I JUST made up!!! […]

What Would You Do?

What would you do if you could?  Hmmmm….  Good question. As the year of 2014 is winding down, I’ve been really wondering what should be on my list of goals for the coming year.   And, not just the normal goals (work out and eat better), but the really BIG ones that I’m always too scared […]

A Change of Plans

On Tuesday I discussed the importance of revisiting our 2014 goals and making an effort to accomplish as many as possible. However, I failed to mention the probability of a change of plans…and oh, are there sometimes BIG changes in the plans we make!! For example, if you had asked me four years ago whether […]

We Have Today

Ever since January I’ve had a list of personal, work, home and family goals staring at me from just above my computer desk.  This spreadsheet looms over my head and occasionally taunts me until I look up.  UGH! If I hadn’t written those 59 goals back at the first of the year like I had […]

Recharging

How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you?  Are you sticking to them?  Have you fallen off the wagon?  Are you pretending like you never made them in the first place?? If you are hanging your head in shame…don’t get too upset because the average length of resolutions is three DAYS (my pastor threw […]

Today

With all my lip service about moving on, making commitments and choosing to follow Jesus, I’ve been burdened with the question, “What do I do RIGHT NOW?” Sounds like an easy question, but for some reason, we tend to make it really difficult. Instead of simply trying to ‘do better’ today, we get stuck in […]

Wisdom

Since last week I wrote about commitment, I thought it would only be fair that today I expand upon the topic of ‘wisdom’ because I really don’t think we can make, much less follow through with commitments, goals, objectives or resolutions unless we are fueled by wisdom. Look carefully then how you walk, not as […]

Commitment

The start of a New Year brings about much discussion of resolutions, goals, plans, objectives and getting ourselves motivated to make this year better than the last. Clearly, the year ahead is on my mind because I’ve already written two blogs in the past few weeks about making plans and moving on.  Honestly, I thought […]

Moving On….

Here’s to the first GEM of 2014!  Woohoo!   We’ve made it this far and we are moving on!  (That’s me and God…in case you were confused about who the ‘we’ was!!) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 The New Year gives […]

Happy New Year!

All of these days off during the holiday season are great, but man, I’m getting TIRED!  I think I’m going to need a vacation from Christmas vacation!!! I wish I could say I’m tired from all of the fun we’ve been having.  However, the flu is what really wiped us out!!  YIKES! Soooo, since I […]
