HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

BLESS YOUR HEART...OR MIND, BODY AND SOUL!
Okay so as it goes I usually have a long list of resolutions or "GOALS" as I like to call them...but last year in our Stake we did an awesome year long Stake-wide program called Bless Your Heart, where each month of the year was designated toward a specific goal. There was basically a FOCUS for that month and we came up with the goal we wanted to work on.
I quote our Stake President-"Prayerfully choose one thing to focus on each month to achieve a spiritual objective! Sometimes you will choose things to do MORE or BETTER, and sometimes you will choose to STOP doing something, and sometimes it will be a combination! Focus on one new thing each month-but continue to work on and progress in the previous goals you have focused on."
It was such a different way to look at New Years Resolutions and I want to do it again this year! I think I achieved more goals than I ever have before because I didn't start out with a list of resolutions and try to do them all at once!
I am bringing this up because I thought if anyone else was interested in doing it, I would love to share it with others! Yes it was layed out for us "mormons", but I have come up with an alternative for those who may not want to just go for the "Spiritual Goals" it's called Bless Your Mind, Body and Soul! Basically it's the same concept only each Quarter focuses on Mental, Physical and Spiritual goals. For example January would focus on Mind, February would focus on Body and March would focus on Soul. Then in April you start over with mind! You could also do all three in one month (if you are REALLY motivated)!
I'm sure ANYONE could find inspiration in both these ideas, and maybe come up with their own spin on either one! If you are interested in finding out more just e-mail me! I will list each months goal focus at the left of the blog.
I hope everyone's New Year is full of hope and excitement...I know ours is!
