January 17th has passed



Around the new year, I heard a message about how on January 17th, most New Year’s resolutions have already fallen to the wayside, forgotten or discarded. The day of that message, I added to my reminders, because I have to put EVERYTHING in my reminders, to evaluate January 17th. I don’t do resolutions but I do have some words that I resonate on for the year and I have goals.


I have allowed you into my world of reminders.

I have projects that I want to make

I have items that I need to buy

I have additions to my budget I need to include

I have reminders of things I need to accomplish

I even remind myself to look at my calendar every day.  You know why? Because life happens. Things come up that are unexpected. People need me. I need people.

My words for 2017…….Present and Complete

I am “Fair” on both. My phone still seems to be a huge stumbling block for me. However I will not let it win. I won’t give up and I will get better.

Complete is not perfect either, however I have finished a few projects and am diligent as I whittle away on one room in the old house before I start on the nursery. Now that’s hard!!!! I want to start the nursery yesterday, but NO, I will not.

I won’t lie. Yesterday was a hard day. Not physically but mentally and emotionally. There will be days like that, probably more often than not. However today is a new day.

How are you on January 18th. One day passed the dreaded January 17th? Are you still working on that New Year’s Resolution? Have you struggled with your words or have they given you strength to keep going.

I hope that January 18th is everything you hope for.

Make it a great day.

Love God, Love Others and Invest your life somewhere!
