Today is the perfect time for a change!
The sun is setting later and making the days longer and spring is just around the corner. As the birds begin to chirp and the flowers begin to bloom – change is happening outside our windows. And now it’s time for a change inside too!
If you always think, “someday I’ll begin.”
Then today is your someday!
And if you are like me and you regularly think – “next month I’ll begin” or “next Monday I’ll begin” – a new month is here! Here’s our chance. Who says you can’t start something on a Thursday? 🙂
The important part is to get started. Your future self will thank you!
3 months from now – you will wish you had started today.
If you have one of Women Living Well’s 3-Month Habit Trackers – let’s begin! If you don’t, they are available on Amazon HERE. You can start one of these anytime! To see a peek inside, check out this blog post here with pictures and more details.
For those who did not purchase a habit tracker – just grab a fresh notebook and join us! You don’t have to have a habit tracker to be intentional about change in your life.
As we begin, take a moment to reflect:
1.) What needs to change in your life?
2.) What are your goals?
3.) What areas are you struggling to stay consistent in?
1.) What is one small step you can take, each day, toward your goal? Take a baby step in the right direction. Make it doable!
2.) Track your steps. Keep on taking a small step everyday. Before you know it – those small steps add up and turn into big steps and change will take place.
3.) Stop procrastinating – use this moment now!
Your life will not change on its own – you must decide to make a change.
Imagine next year at this time, if you achieved the goal you are aiming for, what will your life be like? Maybe your intimacy with God will be deeper or the weight you are trying to lose now – will be lost, or that house project will be complete or that financial goal will be reached.
And won’t that be amazing!
The Christian life is one of growth and change.
The end goal is not to have all of our habit trackers all checked off. While that might be nice – in and of itself – it’s worldly.
The goal is to honor God and invest in relationships, our relationship with God and with others.
When we are organized, we have more time for the people in our lives.
When we have healthy habits – we feel good and are free to follow God’s leading in our lives.
You have a purpose, a calling and a mission –
To glorify God with your life.
For we are God’s workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them.
Habit tracking is all about your inner life. It’s a form of self-care. When we take the time to care for our mind, soul, body and spirit – we have more to give.
We are all going to struggle and miss days and get off track.
Pursue progress…not perfection!
We cannot do any change alone…or it’s just will power.
Ask the Lord to help you – he cares! He knows all that is on your plate. He knows the areas where you feel like a failure. He knows the areas where you need growth and sharpening. He knows your inner struggles. He knows your deepest fears. And He knows what the next 3 months hold for you.
God uses change for his glory.
He turned Mary the peasant girl, into the mother of God almighty!
He turned David the shepherd boy, into a King!
And he turned Saul, a persecutor of Christians, into Paul — a brave man of God!
You are a blood bought child of of the King. Don’t go this road alone!
Pray and ask God for His guidance and his help. He loves you!
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
