I woke up today thankful for the year that was and the beginning of a new one. 2018 was mostly awesome and I got to spend time doing things that mattered to me spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally. I say ‘mostly’ because I still had bouts of anxiety, though I had my prayers and support during these times.
So on this first day of 2019 I started to transition my journal entries from 2018. As a tradition, I use CBTL’s Giving Journal, because I like the way it makes me plan my month while allowing me to reflect on ways to express more gratitude.
As I was thinking through what my 2019 would look like, I read through what I said was my new year’s resolutions on January 2018. I wrote:
I start yoga in 2018. In fact, tomorrow I go to a beginner’s class at TreeHouse Yoga Studio.
Yikes. I only did that for a couple of months. But at least I was able to stick to the other 2 that I’ve written, namely:
Read more books.
To which I was able to bump up my annual target and read 95 books set for the GoodReads 2018 Reading Challenge.
Serve at the community church.
Which opened up more channels for me to be able to serve the community.
Now it took me just a few minutes to put in my resolutions for 2019, because this time I’d continue the things I have already kicked off last year. In essence it’s about the evolution of my journey and the fulfilment of my purpose. I’m also pretty much leaving blank spaces in my list – so I can add more whenever and wherever my journey takes me.
Happy new year to you! I wish you a peaceful, joyful, blessed, and love-filled 2019!
