There is something so refreshing and exciting about a new year. It is the time of year that everyone reflects on themselves and decides to try and be a better person, to live a better life. Some may think it is cliche, but I think there is something really great about that. There is something so special about a new year. While I don't think you need to wait until a new year to make a new start, it is still something I like to participate in. I am a goal and list maker, so new years resolutions are kind of a shoe in for someone like me.
The last year I have struggled with maintaining a consistent balance in regards to my health. I really want to make the commitment to treat my body better, consistently. I want to love my body, I want to be healthy. I truly do believe that our bodies are our personal temples given to us from our Heavenly Father. We live in a time where it is almost easier to treat it poorly. To feed ourselves with unhealthy junk and be lazy. I fight this everyday, and I want to truly make a change.
I want to focus on love in all of it's forms. I want to love better in all aspects of my life. I want to better love my life, love myself, love my husband, family and friends. I want to love strangers, judge less. I want to react with love, in situations that aggravate me or irritate me, in the small moments that can often go overlooked. I just want to have my heart open for opportunities to love those around me, to serve them, and become more Christlike.
So these are my words for the year. Simplify, Health, and Love. Just some things I really want to focus on this year. I thought it would be fun to share these, I know I would love to read yours. So if you want to do a post about the top three things you would like to focus on this year, please link up! I thought it would be fun to read each others and get inspired for our new, fresh start!
