It's this time during mid-January when new year's resolutions start to slip. Any one else feeling a little down after setting up high hopes for this year? I tried to pick a goal that would encompass every single one of my dreams for 2018. To be honest the list probably looked a lot like everyone else's. I want to eat healthier, exercise more, worry less, build up a better business... starting to sound familiar?
Then I read a daily devotional in Shauna Niequist's book, Savor, titled "Start Where You Are." She told the story about how this saying is her friend's new year's resolution. All at once, I loved this this idea! She encourages readers to use this mantra whenever a new skill seems too far off or a goal seems unachievable.
I needed this mantra this morning when I started to feel overwhelmed about several of my projects that are overdue. No matter what your dreams may be for 2018, I hope that you can use this mantra too. If you fall behind on your goals, what's one small thing you can do today to take another step forward? Start where you are. Thank you Shauna!
On days when I feel like I need to reboot, I turn to vanilla bean yogurt. I know it sounds silly, but I love vanilla bean paste, and I believe it has healing properties. Ok not proven, but it's gone a long way to make me feel better on a tough day.
