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.

SistaTV Loves you, Self Reflection, and Realizing New Year’s Resolutions can begin on any given Thursday.

Happy New Year, loves.
