Hey friends! I took a much needed morning off and spent time digging deep into my goals and big dreams. The holidays may be right around the corner but I don’t want to get so busy that I forget to live my life 😉
I’ve been using Lara Casey’s Powersheets for the past several years and they have been truly more than just pretty paper (though the gold foil helps;-) ) The Powersheets have helped me to live with purpose and intention and tackle those big dreams and goals. There are still SO many I’m working on but over the past few years I’ve cultivated my prayer life, paid off debt, developed a morning routine, memorized scripture, started a blog (though it’s SO neglected), completed a 5k, read countless non-fiction books and invested deeply in relationships. Powersheets have been an amazing tool to help build a beautiful & purposeful life.
Powersheets Refresh: November 2015
The Last Few Months:
This Summer & Fall was an absolute whirlwind. However, I’m finding that as I focus on MY unique calling my days become more focused, grace-filled, dependent on Him, purposeful and free. There were deep moments of struggle and growth but God used my weakness to show His strength.
Lessons I learned:
- You have a unique and beautiful story and NOW is the time to claim it, live it and stop apologizing for it.
- Let FAITH be greater than fear.
- You are chosen, beloved and enough because you are already seated with Christ. Be rooted in Him an, not the opinions of other’s.
- Be honest with others about your needs, dreams, desires and wants. You never know how God will use them to bless you.
- Taking 10 minutes to plan & prepare for the day makes a huge difference.
- Embrace who God created you to be—all of your quirks, failures, mistakes, triumphs, strengths are on PURPOSE!
I’m saying No to:
I’m Saying YES to:
Finding my unique voice
Waking up early
Confidence in who I am in Christ
Dependence on His Grace, not my strength
Living at 60% NOT 99%
Refreshed Goals for 2015:
I will make time for daily self-care and spend my free time with what fuels me and fires up my heart!
I will be a good steward of the resources I’ve been given. I will maintain a budget so I can save for a down payment on a house!!
I will prayerfully seek out ways to use my unique gifts and talents at church. (God has already answered this one is some awesome ways…I’m praying for discernment)
I will live an active life (even in the midst of Wisconsin Winter) through daily walks, swimming laps at the YMCA or doing a Revelation Wellness Video so I have energy to be the best me!
I will find my unique voice as a writer by making time to write consistently. (Share MY story on the blog, just for me or on Instagram)
Okay friends, those are a few of my goals for the rest of the year. What about you all? Do you have goals for the next few months or are you already dreaming up 2016 dreams and plans?
