Not waiting til the end

It’s February! One month down 11 more to go! Is it me or weren’t we just screaming “Happy New Year”! This month really went by fast and I wanted to try something new to increase my productivity and focus. Many of us wait until the new year is approaching before we begin to reflect on our year and then we rush to scratch off of our list things we said we would do before a new list of things begin. As the first 31 days of 2014 are behind me, I want reflect on my month, what worked, what didn’t, what could I have done better, done more of, done less, and changed.

January was a great month even with the mounds of snow and bone chilling cold! In the beginning of the month I chose my one word that would set the tone for my entire year, that word is JUMP (another post coming soon on this). I realized in order for extraordinary things to happen I must have extraordinary faith and to make some extraordinary sacrifices. This month I also began a fasting every day from 6am to 6pm drinking only water and juice. This fast is not only about sacrifice but also discipline for me. This month I was afforded some great opportunities to JUMP and get outside of my comfort zone, but I still have a long way to go. There were also sometimes where I stood on the ledge with a panoramic view of my future and still walked backward to a more comfortable view.

In February, I look forward to managing my time better, jumping higher and further, experiencing greater discipline, having more quiet moments, being present in various areas, and living life purposefully.

Be encouraged.
