Welcome to the new year, it is finally 2020! I know that when the new year starts it is very easy to set goals to change yourself and say “new year new me.” In my opinion, the new year shouldn’t be about changing ourselves or making ourselves someone we aren’t.  The new year should be about making small manageable goals that only embellish our lives. The smaller the goal, the more likely we are to not only keep up with it, but to accomplish the goal itself. For some people, making new year’s resolutions are too much to make, they simply want to strive to live a better live.

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” -Edith Lovejoy Pierce

I agree with Edith; I believe that we should look at the new year like a blank book. We have the choice to “fill” the book with the highs and lows of life. We should stop and think about how we could make our “books” more interesting. Examples of improving our books would be stepping out and doing something new. I challenge you to “fill” your books with something new. Go out and devour the world, you could set a new goal, try hanging out with a new group of people, try a new sport, or even do something out of your ordinary.

This year I am trying to implement manageable goals. I am trying to exercise at least daily by doing something active. I am also trying to get closer to my faith by doing devotionals daily and continue reading to further my knowledge as well. I am starting my book blank,but by the end of the year I can only imagine what mine is going to look like by the end of the year. I can’t wait to see what yours is going to look like at end of the year! Here’s to 2020!
