For everyone who has been following my blog, I just wanted to let you know that I made it to the end of my health challenge and I accomplished the goal I set at the beginning. The funny thing is now that the challenge is done, I could choose to keep the win and stay consistent with the changes I have already made or I can continue my journey creating new goals to reach. I have chosen to continue my journey, creating a new goal for myself. I have accountability set up for myself. I am also planning on posting affirmations on my wall so when I am feeling discouraged I can read them and be motivated and inspired to continue on.
Just like my journey to renewed health and wellness, the same principles apply to my journey in my walk with God. When I am feeling weak or tired on the journey, it is important to have people to hold me accountable, and it is important to remember why I began this journey in the first place. Additionally, words of encouragement and affirmation to help me stay focused and not allow my heart to be distracted.
So many of us in our journey through life trying to accomplish goals all on our own. You do not need to do that, ask someone you trust to walk with you and keep you accountable to reaching the goals you set for yourself. In order to achieve success we need support of those who believe in us and want to journey with us. Take some time and think about the people in your life. As you are thinking about your goal, is there someone in your life that can walk with you? If so, now may be the time to contact them and ask them to journey with you. It may just surprise you what can happen when you do not try to succeed all by yourself!
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
