48 days to 2015… New Year’s Resolutions in the Old Year


I don’t know why but this morning it occurred to me that there are less than 50 days until New Years Day 2015 and New Year’s Resolutions. I love every singly thing about New Year’s and New Year’s Resolutions. Every year I set my New Year’s Resolutions so carefully. So Earnestly. And every year I set the same New Year’s Resolutions again because I have zero point zero idea how to Keep New Year’s Resolutions through the whole year.

So this morning when I realized how close we were to the New Year…. I wasn’t ready . I really feel like New Year’s Day 2014 was two seconds ago.

2014 was a bit of a blur for me. If I hadn’t lived it myself, I wouldn’t even be sure if this last year was even real. It was a doozy but I’m grateful for it all.

I have no idea where 2015 will take me, but I know without a doubt that next year will be even bigger and better.

But I’m not exactly sure how. I spent most of this year in awe of what God can do. In a lot of ways, I was sort of a spectator to the show God put on in my life. He really showed up and showed out. Last year, I truly didn’t understand faith and the goodness of God. This year… I totally get it. So, now that I know what he can do, I feel like he’s telling me its time to stop watching from the stands and stand up and let the world see what WE can do.  I’m ready to enlarge my faith, eliminate my fears, and work with God to fly even higher.

This scripture has been running through my mind a lot lately:

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? James 2:14

What is my work? I have NO IDEA.

Can my faith alone save me? Yes, I believe so. But what would happen if I use faith and work in concert? Again…. I have NO IDEA.

What I know for sure is that today, I can start creating the habits that will allow me to do the work to have a year of never before. I’m going to start my new year’s resolutions in the old year. I’m not waiting till midnight on the 1st of January. I’m going to start working now.

I need to set some goals for myself and actually achieve them.

I believe that goal setting, consistency, and elimination need for perfection are the keys to success…

Why? Because I don’t do any of these things, and I have yet to hold on to any lasting success. I’m being hard on myself but I want more. And I’m hopeful that if I work on those three things and stay centered in my faith in God, I will find myself celebrating long-term lasting successes in all areas of my life

In 2014, I got a my testimony. Now I’m going to work on the message.

I’m going to give myself a 48 days 14 hours 57 minutes and 27 seconds head start on my New Year’s Resolutions. I will set the foundations for my success habits now, so when the bell tolls on 2015, I’ll be ready.

So those are my three things:

Goal Setting.

Consistency.

Understanding that Perfection is the enemy of Done.

Get My Goals Done Consistently.

Happy New Year, loves.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! No whoopings but I had to offer some ahem additional inspiration to Jumpstart the after Mother's  day clean-up.  #tiredasamother #whyareyalllikethis #howdidwafflebattergetupthere #thisiswhywecanthavenicethings ???????
The face you make when you've been kicked out of your own kitchen, told you have to stay in your bedroom, relax, and wait for breakfast in bed... but all you can hear is arguing over who gets to make what, pots and pans dropping, and wait.... is that the smoke alarm I hear?

I kid,  I kid... no alarm! they did great! #kidtvs for the win. #happymothersday
So... I get a free tire balance with my oil change ... first he gives me my keys and i say did you do the tire rotation? He says your oil change doesnt come with any tire rotation... i say yes it does. He says no it doesnt. I pull up the info on my phone. He say oh it does say that. Then  he says that's only if you bought the tires from us. I say uhh no. He looks again  and says okay I'll pull it back in to rotate them. But if they are unbalanced. You supposed to only get your tires rotated at the place you buy them from. I say thanks how long will it take you to rotate them? He says 20-30 minutes. 30 minutes later  he calls me ans says
.. my lug nut and stud is stripped so now I have to pay an additional $60+ for them to put on a new lug nut... i do a quick Amazon search and see it costs like $10. I say Oh no thank you. I'll just have my neighbor do it. He says OH liability,  we can't let you leave cause we'll  be responsible if the tire falls off. Then I say but what if I don't have 60 to give? Silence. I have enough money to pay... but I absolutely  despise this constant upcharge game that happens every single time. #womenatanautoshop
When your neighbor is UH-MAZING!!????? What a kind and wonderful surprise to find outside my door. Thank you to Kristen for the easter eggs! No thank you to Jesus for the dandelions... Lol... I LOVEEE MY NEIGHBORS! #godisgood #happyeaster #yaylife

SistaTV's Daily Gratitude List #SDGL 
1. All four of us COLLAPSED into hysterical laughter at the Arthur/kids interrupting the BBC interview meme. It tickled me so deeply that they laughed so hard.
2. When I first showed them the video of the kids interrupting the BBC interview, I was like "it's so funny cause it's just like when you guys are always interrupting me when I'm working" and they all  gave me the "???? Face" like, "Who us?? We don't knock down books and stuff"
3. I stepped exactly ZERO parts of my person out into the snow. #hesable #remote
4. No. 
5. Redeemer and Allyson calling to sing happy birthday to miss 11 year old thang. They were laughing and happy and I love them so.
 6. So we are going on trip soon. Of course, I  feel approximately 18 billion different kinds of stressed out about it. It's going to be fine.
7. Today was a rough-ish day. I'll try for less rough tomorrow. You too, ok?

SistaTV Loves you, laughing with my kids, and  deep breathing. #goodnight
