Have you heard of others choosing a “Word of the Year” and wondered what that was and how they chose it? For key #1 for how to have your best year yet, Pam Farrel shares a deep dive into her process of determining a word of focus for the year and how to weave that word into your daily life. She’s even including some free worksheets. Key #2 is an invitation to a Challenge that will help set you up to make today and every day a good day despite your circumstances.
What if I told you that every day can be a good day despite our feelings or circumstances? God has never broken a promise; we can count on his promises coming true in our lives. Standing on any of his promises gives us a reason why today—or any day—despite our circumstances, is a good day for a good day. Every day I still have to challenge myself to change my mindset and where I place my focus. Today, I have a challenge for you!
It’s the time of year when we assess what we’ve accomplished over the past year, and begin to think about goals and changes for the new year. Some people make New Year’s resolutions. Others create vision boards. Pam Farrel and I share two ideas for how to start your new year off right!
It’s important to pay attention to what we are focusing on. What we focus on grows and impacts the quality of our day for better or for worse. We’ll talk about the neurological reason why this happens! And, we’ll discuss how to improve your day with some simple steps on how to focus on God instead of problems.
God commands us to come with Him with thanksgiving in every situation we find ourselves in. If there is one thing I’ve learned about God, it’s that He doesn’t command us to do anything that isn’t His best for us. And if cultivating a grateful lifestyle is for our good, just perhaps this will foster our ability to perceive each day as good, even when there are bad moments within each day.
