Celebrate The Wins
Updated: Jan 3
Happy New Year! I hadn’t planned on writing a New Years post from quarantine, (for the second time in a year and a half) but here we are! Go ahead and get a visual of me in the same pj‘s for the second day in a row, snuggled up on my couch in a mound of blankets with Rosie, because that is my current reality.
I was looking back through pictures from the past year and felt myself smiling as I flipped through the memories. Those images reminded me of things I overcame this year, goals that were met, and prayers that were answered.
It’s become so easy to focus on all of the “woulda, couldas and shouldas” during this season, and I want to change that.
The truth is we’re human. Sometimes we lose focus, sometimes we get busy, become uninterested, have selfish moments, get our priorities out of whack or gain weight. Don’t punish yourself. Instead, look back and see what you got right, focus on the winning moments and then make a plan to win again.
After a busy holiday season of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, I usually have some areas that need re-direction this time of year. (by areas, I mean my mid section and backside🤣) It’s no secret that some of the holiday traditions and festivities (not to mention deserts) took precedence over early morning workouts.. and I am 100% ok with that. I will remember those happy occasions for years to come and it will be much less stressful to start back into a workout routine after the first of the year.
On NYE I was praying and I began to thank God for everything He had done for our family this past year. I began praying aloud the words, “You are GOD and you are GOOD.” This phrase has become my praise mantra for this week as we navigate through the resting and healing process. Even when we can’t see it, He‘s still God and He’s still GOOD.
If you find yourself wishing you had done things differently this past year, don’t beat yourself up. Instead, take a moment to download and print my Free New Year Planner Template. It‘s a great way to remind you of the things you should celebrate from the past year, and help you plan for more wins in 2022.
