Starting the New Year Out Right

IMG_0434

I purchased these books a few days ago at Barnes and Nobles. I was looking for a few good reads to help me start out the New Year right. Joyce Meyer’s “Change Your Words Change Your Life” and Steve Dunham’s “The Editor’s Companion.” I’m really looking forward to reading them and I plan to start today.

I’ve never been as excited as I am now about beginning a new year.

There comes a point in time when you come to the realization that things have to change. You begin to realize that you can’t keep going about things the way that you used to. For me, that time is now.

I did a huge self-evaluation and I found some things that I didn’t like. I realized that I wasn’t operating in faith at all.

I would love to become an editor. I have a real knack for working with language and helping others communicate what it is that they want to say through writing. There is nothing that I want more than to have a business of my own where I can do something that I enjoy and work on my own time.

Truth be told, I have not been making any real strides towards achieving that goal. I always thought it would be more suitable and practical to pick a career that was easily attainable– something more reliable. But where is the trust in that?

I made up my mind that this year would be the year that I trust God one hundred percent. I want to operate by faith and not by sight. I want to trust in God and not in my own understanding of how I think things may work out if I choose the more “reliable” route.

This is the year that I believe in myself. This is the year that I believe in the abilities and talents that God gave me. This is the year that I move forward to attain all that God has for me– this is the year.
