2017 to 2018

Wow 2018, where did 2017 go so fast?

Most people have spent the last few days reflecting the past year and setting goals for the new year. My  husband and I were no different. As we traveled home from a New Year’s Eve get a way, we discussed our past year. I will not lie and say it was all roses, because we really struggled. Our year started with what could have been the end to our marriage; yet by year end, we were happier and stronger than ever. Our finances also took some major hits yet we pulled together and with lots of prayer and work, we managed to stay on top of that as well.

I usually pick a word at the beginning of the year and focus my goals around that for the year. Looking at 2017, things started so bad that I never chose that word so in reflection it was “growth”. Growth in my marriage, growth in my faith, and yes even some growth in my finances.

I have not set goals for 2018 and decided not to. Instead, my daily focus will change. I plan to dig deeper into my Bible, work on the book I started writing (hopefully finish it), work on getting healthier, and keep a list of my on-going plans to see how many I accomplish in the year.

Here’s to making every day of 2018 count!

Happy New Year.

  1. I agree that in order accomplish your goals, you should definitely keep a list and make daily changes to your life. Doing so will make it easier to attain your goals!

  2. In 2017, I wrote down goals but never actually went back to check on them. At the end of 2017, I was happy to see that I reached some of my goals while others did not have any movement. I normally set a word or phrase for the year as something to help me focus and remember. For 2018, I chose “simple” or “keep it simple” as my focus. With our busy lives, it is hard to remember to refocus yourself daily on what’s important.

    You mentioned that you started a book, which is amazing! Good Luck! I wish you all the best in your journey!
