Workin' It - New Years Goals


It's a new year and a new link up! I will be sharing how I am "workin' it" on the second Wednesday of each month.  Shay and Erika have some super fun topics. It's only appropriate that the first link up we share some goals we have for the new year.

It has been a HUGE past few weeks around our house. Mark and I had been tossing around the idea of selling our house for a about 6 months few months. Around Thanksgiving we talked to our realtor and decided as soon as the new year came and the sun was shining we needed to be ready to put the "For Sale" sign in our yard.  We love our house but we need this move...for many reasons. There are 4 of us living in 888 sq. feet. We are ready for something that fits our family better. With all that said the house went "live" last Friday at 1pm. We got a call early Saturday morning asking if someone could show the house...then we got another call...then another call....then a call from our realtor with an OFFER!!! We had a contract in less than 24 hours!!! We couldn't believe it. All we continued to say was "God is GOOD!" He has totally gone before us and paved a way for us...I truly believe this.

With all that said...I haven't had much time to sit and think about what this new year holds until I began composing this post. One word just kept coming to mind:

                                         ***************************************
PURPOSE

What a word, right!?!? In 2017 I am going to act with purpose in all I do. I am not someone who does something halfway usually but I already know this year is going to require a lot more "no's" than "yes's" and I want to be okay with that. I want to be able to remind myself I am doing all areas of my life with purpose. I am not just going through the motions.

I plan to work out 2-3 times a week. If I get to more than YAHOO but I want to make 2-3 times a week a habit for me. Mark and I have been very conscious of our eating habits lately. I plan to continue this through the year as well as drinking my daily water needed. We have made some pretty minor lifestyle changes but as a whole it was a large change. It feels so good!

                                          *****************************************
 I have never been one of those people who "hate social media." I think everyone has their own convictions regarding this. I won't get on my soap box but...I plan to scroll less. Shay talked about actually taking time and scrolling to through look at others we care about. It's fun to see my friends children. It's fun to see cute house projects. I just want to do it with a purpose...not just to be scrolling.
                                            ***************************************
I love to read! About 1/2 of 2016 I started reading again...like really reading. I would have a book in my car a lot. I would read anytime I was in a line or waiting in my car. (which seems to be pretty often these days) It is way more refreshing that just "scrolling." ;) Even though I have started reading more I want to continue to grow in this area.  As well as reading fun books I want to better my quiet time. This includes journaling and studying God's word more.

2017 = PURPOSE
