Hello first Monday of 2015! Which also happens to be my 43rd birthday! Perfect day to begin some Daily Affirmations for the New Year right?! New Year…another year–all those ideas floating around how I want to make this year better, this 2015 and this 43rd year. Here’s the secret, making it better begins in my own mind.
Daily Affirmations for the New Year
Making this year better begins in my own mind. My husband, my children, my best friend, a clean floor, even paying off our house will not make this year better. Where I let my thoughts focus and the words I speak are the only sure way to make a year better…which also means I have the power to make the year worse. <cringe>
You know the one that stood out to me as I read through those…It will be worth it. We’ve set a big goal of paying off our house this year, which will be five years from purchase. We are going to have to say “No” to many less important things this year. Those temporary “No’s” will be worth it.
I’ve embraced my vocation as wife, mother and homeschooler. The long days (and nights sometimes) of hands on/hearts on teaching and training will be worth it. The choices to be here rather than there will be worth it.
Choosing to follow–for the most part–eating the Trim Healthy Mama way will be worth it in more ways than just losing almost 25 pounds in 2014.
I have chosen to respond to a call I feel God has given me to share my thoughts and words here on The Littlest Way blogging. The long nights, the vulnerability, people scoffing at me blogging and the learning curve of bogging will be worth it.
I have made the choice to live my life as a Christ follower. Striving each day to hear His voice and follow His commands, dressing modestly, reading His Word, setting aside parts of my day and week for Him alone in an extremely unchristian world will be worth it.
Print these Daily Affirmations for the New Year and the reminder that “It will be worth it” off and tape them to your bathroom mirror, place them in your Notetaker’s Bible for Bible Journaling or devotional journal, or write them on 3×5 cards to carry in your purse. Make these daily affirmations a priority in your day and your year will be better because you’ve chosen to make it so.
