It is that time of year again where we contemplate, look back, and look forward. Last year my word of the year was Commit. I can honestly say that things happened that made me commit. I had to hit bottom to make those final decisions of commitment. I still have areas I could work on but I did commit to home educating our children and being consistent with it. Due to my health I sometimes would not be consistent. Which leads me to another commitment I made and that was to invest in my health once and for all. I have committed to exercise and I am working on eating better. I have reduced a lot of things and overall lost 32 pounds this year. That was a bonus.
Overall I feel I committed to some important things such as trying to grow in the Lord, letting go of
issues that were clinging to me, and commitment to my health and education of my kids. I also made sure not to over commit outside the home so I could be committed to things that were vitally important. I committed to read more and I surpassed my goals.
Where I did not commit completely was in our finances (ugh) and of course I could always commit more to prayer and word (these are a daily but I can always go deeper).
I will take this word with me and these commitments with me into 2017 and hopefully add more and commit more to our finances, health, and spiritual growth of myself and my family.
What about you? Looking back did you reach your goals?
