The First Day of the Best Year of Your Life!

This is it.  Day one of a brand New Year.  You won’t get another chance to live January 1, 2017.  You will never be able to do this year over, so why not make the most of it?  Why not start with a commitment to make this the best year of your life!

What things or people do you need to walk away from?  Is it time to scale down the “friends” list on Facebook?  Unfollow negative people, both in real life and social media?  Is it time you make some new friends or mend some broken fences?  Are you ready to break old habits?  And start new, healthy ones?

Do you need to get up and move?  Spend less time on the couch and in front of the television?  Is it time to pick up a new hobby?  Take a real step toward fulfilling that long awaited dream of yours?

Maybe this is the year you need to step out of your comfort zone.  Learn how to relax, smile and laugh more.

Get rid of what’s been holding you down or back.  Unclutter what’s in your mind and in your house.

Don’t just read your Bible—study it.  Memorize it.  Allow it to change you from the inside out.

Show gratitude to God and others.  Stop taking life and people for granted.  Stop trying to control things.  Learn what it truly means to release a circumstance or person into God’s hands.

Let go…

of anger.  Hurt.  The need to be right.  Pride.  Selfishness.  Gossip.

Do things that challenge you, instead of what’s easy.  Be brave in the face of difficulties.  Be fierce when warranted.  Fight for what’s right.  Display grace and love in a way you’ve never done before.

Don’t wait for 2018 to be “the year.”  Start TODAY!  Stop expecting change without effort.  You are the only one who can do this.  You control the changes in your life.  This is it.  Day one of a brand New Year.  What will be your first step toward the best year of your life?
