But real talk, has anyone maintained them?
Instead of taking the stance of "Well, failed this year, better luck next year", I thought that I would try re-starting now. Who says you have to start over at the beginning of the year? I can do it whenever I want. And that is just what I am going to do.
Quick recap of my goals:
- Eat lunch away from my desk at least once a week.
- Eat cleaner and do some form of physical activity 3-4x a week.
- Make time to create and nurture more meaningful relationships both personally and professionally.
- Take at least 30 minutes a day to have quiet time, reading the Bible and journaling.
My goals aren't anything extreme or unachievable. They are really about creating better habits to live a balanced life. My body in my 30's won't be as forgiving as my body was in my 20's.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor your God with your bodies."
This verse can probably be interpreted or applied in several ways, but the way I am viewing it now is that I need to be mindful of how I treat my body both physically and spiritually. God gave me this body and I need to respect it and do it well.
So here's to second chances and redo's. If you are like me and didn't stick to your 2018 goals that you set out in the beginning of the year, I encourage you to join me in a re-do. Feel free to share with me any of your goals in the comments, that I may serve as your cheerleader and accountability partner.
