New Beginnings

Devotionals

It is hard to believe that another year has already come and gone. 2018 brought and taught me great things, but I am ready to dive into the new year. I know it can be cliche to have New Years “resolutions” and “goals”, but it is something I like to do at the start of each new year. Something that is always fun for me is to write down my top 10 goals, keep them throughout the year and see how many I accomplish. This is a great way to not only hold yourself accountable, but to stay motivated as you work towards your goals. So, with that being said these are my top 10 goals for 2019:

1.) Become Stronger In My Walk With God

In 2018 I became closer to God then I ever have been. I opened up about my faith with others and shared God’s love. In the coming year I want to become even stronger in my faith by truly trusting God and the plans He has for my life.

2.) Worry Less

In the past couple years my anxiety has been at an all time high. I am constantly worrying about every little thing (even the things I can’t control) . I am not saying I will never worry about anything, but this also goes along with trusting God that everything will be okay.

3.) Better Physical/Mental Health

My whole life I have struggled with self image. Physical and mental health is something I want  to take very seriously in 2019. The more I learn to love myself, the more love I can give to others.

4.) Be Myself

This is a big one for me. I have always been so shy growing  up and worry way to much about what people think. I want to learn to just be myself and do what makes me happy without caring so much about what other people think.

5.) Give More

I love to donate wether that be clothes, money etc., just seeing what an impact it can make is amazing. In 2019 I want to make it a point to give more every month.

6.) Grow My Blog/Youtube

I am so passionate about my blog and youtube channel. I love that I can show my creative side and also have the chance to inspire so many people.

7.) Travel

I am still in school, so this one may be a little harder to accomplish, but I love traveling and the feeling it gives me. I want to try the best I can to see some new places this year. God has given us such a beautiful Earth to explore.

8.) Read More Books

Ever since I was little I have loved to read. Reading allows you to transport into a different world for just a little while, and I have always been fascinated by that. As I’ve grown older I don’t read as often as I used to, so I want to make it a point to read more books.

9.) Spread Positivity

Not only do I want to be more positive about myself, but about just everything in general. Everywhere I go I want to spread positivity.

10.) Start My Own Business

This is something I have always dreamed of and would love to make it a reality. I have an idea in mind, and I have been praying a lot about it, so hopefully I can make it happen in 2019.

“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
