The End of 2017
The end of the year will be here before you know it. This past year I can honestly say that I set some goals and I accomplished some of them. Although I didn’t cross everything off my list, the progress I have made thus far has me exicted for 2018 and what that will bring. What will your 2018 look like? The great thing about answering that question is that you are in control of what it looks like.
For this month I’ll be writing to help us prepare for 2018. We’ll look at this past year with open eyes to where we can look at ourselves, our spouses, and our marriages and begin to make plans for the upcoming year.
December is a great time to reflect on the past year and get prepared for 2018. Many may call it a life assessment or a time or reflection. No matter what it is called the main idea behind it is still the same; we want to look at the past year to see what things worked, what didn’t work, where could we be better in life, and so on. Before we look around us, we need to look within.
Who are you? Do you really know who you are? Most people don’t. So many of us hide behind the false selves of achievement and status, because we are afraid for the world to truly see us for who we are. If they saw us then they might not like us.
If we know who we are, then we’ll know what we’re called to do.
There is a gap between who we present ourselves to be and who we truly are. Our goal is to bridge that gap. To be a person of constant character.
How do we bridge this gap? There are plenty of tools that are online that can help with that. One that I like to use is here.
A tool is only as good as you use it. What I’m saying that it doesn’t matter what tool you use if you never take any steps you gain from the insights. We all have blindspots in our lives. We can’t ignore them and expect to get the best out of life.
This is intentional growth. We aiming to be better people with better marriages.
All of this starts with us first.
What do you want the next year of your life to look like? What blind spots are you going to tackle?
Comment below, there’s isn’t a better accountability than to tell someone else.
