New Years resolutions
Every year we all make New years resolutions, we vow to go to the gym more, eat right, make more money, do the things we should be doing already but didn’t.
Us gym rats know that the gym is packed the first month of the year but by the last week in January not so much and by the second week in February it’s just us die hards that are in there again.
So why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we make these resolutions only to break them and then make ourselves feel bad?
Three years ago I decided I wasn’t going to make anymore resolutions, I was going to make life resolutions, to do something to change who I was as a person inside.
2014 was: Let go and let God
This meant I couldn’t control everything,
I couldn’t figure out all of my problems, if I wanted to change my life I had to let go of control and give it to God. God kept giving me messages but I thought I knew better.
All year long God has been knocking, he’s been telling you to follow him but you done what you wanted to do where did it get you? So in 2014 I decided to let go and let God.
2015 was: Pray and let God worry
I remember stressing so much I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, my hair was falling out, I even thought I was having a heart attack at one point. I couldn’t go on believing in God and keep stressing, it didn’t make sense, did I believe or not? Do I have faith or not? So I chose to pray and let God worry, that was the best decision I ever made.
2016 was: Be present in my purpose
I know I am here for a purpose, I know God gave me this gift of writing and to be able to touch others with my words and so in 2016 I chose to be present in that purpose and know that this is where I am supposed to be.
My bible verse has always been: Romans 8 .28
God causes everything to happen for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. I was present in this verse and my life all year long.
2017 was: Be real to yourself
For me it’s listening to that voice inside yourself, feeling what makes you happy, trusting that God is telling you, what is real. We often po po things in our minds, we know deep down what the message is but we don’t listen.
I heard the message and I have acted quickly on it as I trusted God and my intuition. This was a hard one and sometimes I reverted into my old ways but I was quicker to learn my lessons and move on.
This year’s is: Knowing your self worth…
A hard one for me as I’ve lost it along time ago and haven’t gotten it back. I let men use me, I run after men who aren’t worth my time, I made excuses for bad behavior of people and gave way too many chances to people who’ve have hurt me.
I have to practice what I preach, what I write about to my readers. I need to show others how to treat me, with respect and love and if not, your outta here.
But you cannot get all of this, if you still will not let go, if you still do not have faith…it’s all on you, can you get out of your own way to make things happen?
I’ve learned that these are the 7 most destructive behavior you do to yourself.
2-Living in the flesh rather than being lead by the holy spirit
7-Want to be served instead of serving
Once we let go of these things, once we let go of control, once we learn faith and we pray and let God worry, once we are present in our purpose, once we are real with ourselves, everything we ever wanted, everything we ever lost, everything that was stolen from us, will be returned in abundance.
So today my friends, I tell you that this is your year, you are the only one to change the things in your life. If you truly want them to change you have to do the work and believe me sometimes it’s not easy.
You don’t want to give up control, how can you not worry? How can I believe or have faith when crap is hitting the fan all around me? It is all up to you…I am no different than you…if I can do it then you can too. Change your life today…
Don’t make New years resolutions, make life resolutions…start today…
“Be the change you want to see”
“And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
