One thing many people do before a new year begins is create a list of resolutions or things they hope to accomplish. Whether it's personal goals or milestones for your business, we all have big dreams and hopes for our future. In years past I've created list after list, cause y'all know this Type A extrovert loves her lists, ha! So I decided to take a look back at the list I made in the beginning of 2014 and see what all I had completed. While I certainly accomplished a lot last year, I at first focused on all that I hadn't. "I didn't reach this many followers on Twitter," or "I continued to sweat the small stuff." There were many things I intended to do, but after awhile I forgot about the list and focused on what really mattered... living life. Because of that, I accomplished so much more than what was written down on paper!
When it came time to sit down and think about what I wanted to do in 2015, I of course set some personal and career type goals. But I decided to not make this year's focus about checking items off a list. Instead, I hope to plan less and enjoy the wonderful blessings going on in my life now. It's like the saying goes, "God laughs every time you make a plan." It's soooo true y'all! A much bigger plan is meant for us than some bullet points on a list. Yes, goals and resolutions are important. But for this new year, I decided to do away with the lists and resolutions, and instead focus on the unplanned moments and adventures. It's gonna be hard. Trust me. But I'm sure gonna try!
