Wow, can you believe that 2018 is only a few hours away? I feel like we just started 2017. This year feels like it just went by in the blink of an eye? Does it feel that way to you? I am so excited to step in to a new year filled with a fresh start, new adventures and endless possibilities and opportunities.
I am SUPER excited to share with y'all the things I am trying for this year. Remember that it's NEVER to late to try something. Hope you enjoy!
Isn't it so easy to believe lies from the devil? I spent sometime this past year believing the lies from the devil, "I am not beautiful, not good enough, not as faith filled, and not as adventurous as others." I would look at people's Instagram profiles and say I am not as beautiful as them, or have numerous friends that travel the world (which I want to do). I would tell myself that I can't got to those places because "I don't have the money for that."
So I decided it was time to change my thinking because One, "Jesus made me fearfully and wonderfully made in his image." 2nd with a little saving, hard work, and putting forth an effort, I could travel in the places I desire to adventure. I created the board pictured below with the main things I am tell myself this year. I am choosing to speak them over my life in 2018. Telling myself, "I am beautiful, adventurous, faithful, a dreamer etc" I am choosing to step into the person that God created me to be. I hung this cork board next to my bed so that every morning and evening I can remind myself who Jesus made me to be.
In addition to my board, in April 2017 I was watching a live video with @jasistylee . She makes a memory jar with a mason jar and sticky notes! I started this right away. This jar sits on my night stand with a pack of sticky notes. Each night I write down a few things from the day that I am thankful or something that was my favorite part of the day (maybe I got a text from a friend, a boy, I get a 100% on a test, or a funny moment etc) and then I fold the sticky note placing it in the jar. Then I read them all New Years Eve. I am super excited to do this again. This is SO fun.
Remember that its never too late to put something into action. If you like these ideas I highly recommend trying these things. I also have a few goals of things that I'd like to do in the year of 2018. I pray that you would have a blessed 2018!
