Are We There Yet?

imageWell, we’re halfway through the first month of a new year! How are you doing? How have the days been so far? Sticking to those resolutions?

I don’t know about you, but I’m still thankful, glad and joyful over these days the Lord has given. They haven’t all been easy, but life is still a gift and a blessing. (I know some of you have found that out, TRULY.)

Looking back at the first 15 days, it’s easy to dwell on what we’ve already failed at, goals not met, not living up to who we wanted to be, often asking if our efforts have made a difference. Have I arrived? Am I there, yet?

Some days you have to fight harder than others to get there, wherever there is for you, but the point is, fight! Follow your dreams, go for what you want, don’t give up! Commit to the hard work, even if it hurts. In the end, if you don’t, you’ll only be hurting yourself.

I have one goal for this year: to live my life better. Sure, I have other quests, like starting a blog (DONE!) and making a quilt. But with each new day the Lord gives, I aim to live fully and truly.
