Looking Ahead at 2021

I usually set out some goals in this space. And I do have a few goals I want to accomplish (which I will share).

But more than that, I want to document my word and verse for the year. I’ve chosen a verse to meditate on for several years, but I don’t always remember to share them here.

My word is “forward’ and my verse utilizing that is Philippians 3:13-14 “One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching FORWARD to those things which are ahead, I press on toward the goal for which God has called me heavenward.”

I want to look toward the things God has for me this year. Things to grow myself and grow His kingdom.

I know I worked on a LOT of things in 2020, including gaining some financial peace, some self-love, and lots of counseling to work through issues. But we press on.

Some goals I’m setting for myself:

-Read one book a month. I’ve gotten into more of a rhythm reading and I want to continue.

-Cook through the ENTIRE Skinnytaste Meal Prep cookbook. This will not only fulfill my desire for “novelty” and draw on my love of cooking, but I think it will help us eat more healthy (something I struggle with having endless time to cook comfort foods).

-Find a workout program/system that’s sustainable for me. I was LOVING 9 Round in 2019, and then it wasn’t working in 2020. Their virtual workouts weren’t great for me alone at home. But neither was much of anything (aside from walking, which has been amazing for me…but it’s cold now….so…). I crave community and collaboration in a workout, but that’s hard to find right now. I have plans to try a couple different things and see if either will stick. Not just for “weight loss” sake, but for strength, health and mental health. Working out helps me in lots of ways.

That’s it. I’m not working towards a goal weight or any big things. I want to do some things that I know will help me go toward the person I want to be: someone who is healthy, vibrant, always learning and who cares for others. Here’s to 2021.
