Time for a New Year along with a NEW YOU!

2013 brings on a new set of challenges for each and every single one of us....yet we fall off and give up before the month or the year is over. 2013, I challenge you to never give up. Find accountability partners and find new goals for yourself. It doesn't matter if it is a small stepping stone or a large goal. Just remember you have to build yourself up to get there. We were not crawling when we came out of our mother's womb nor were we walking. It takes time and baby steps. This includes everything in your life, whether it is regarding your finances, your health, your job, your relationships, your spirituality, your children, your spouse, significant other, etc. Remember baby steps. The Bible says the diligent will prosper and He is with us every step of the way if we just believe and step out in faith His will be done. So here are some things I challenge you to:

1. Set a goal for every month of the year (lbs lost, amount of debt paid off, number of family members you reunite with, etc.)

2. No matter what, NEVER GIVE UP!! God never gave up on us, so why should we give up on ourselves.

3. Be diligent and research everything you do (how to pay off debt, how to eat healthier, how to cook a dish healthier, etc)

4. Find an accountability partner with the same goals and do it together! Prosper together, lose weight together, pay off debt together, etc. 

5. Remember where your light shines from daily and keep your faith strong no matter if you are ready to give up or things are just not going right.

Remember, a dollar paid off is better than a dollar more in debt. An inch or 2 lost is better than a lb gained or sometimes even lost.

Good luck and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! GOD BLESS!! Any questions, let me know!!


P.S. I am going to be fasting in January (supposedly the Daniel Fast) and I am going to try to keep up with blogging about my experiences and my new recipes I come up with. Stay tuned and subscribed!!
