Can I be completey honest w/you???
I have been scared to set goals. I would see things in my mind or just have an urge to do something and I’d let it go…
I wouldnt write it down because it all seemed to big and to unattainable.
I would start to write things down and I’d freeze up. I’d find myself saying on the inside “How can you do this? This is wayyyyyy too big of a project for you to take on. You aren’t skilled enough, outgoing enough, smart enough to do this. Do you know how much this is gonna cost??!?!”
And then I’d stop… I’d stop writing. I’d stop dreaming. I’d stop believing.
I’d stop believing that God had a purpose for me that wasn’t just for me, He had others connected to it.
I’d stop believing that God’s light is supposed to shine through me to lead people back to Him.
I’d stop believing that I am fearfully and wonderfully made…
There is nothing that is impossible for God and everything that He has put in me has to bring Him glory!
I took the time to write down my goals and to break them down into steps. I realized that I was trying to “eat elephant whole instead of piece by piece”.
I take the time to look over and read aloud my goals.
I go over my affirmations and speak the Word over myself.
I think about God and what His Word says about me.
And I realized that not only am I doing this for me, I’m doing this for my children…I want them to be able to rise up and call me blessed!
What are your goals? Do you have any tips in goal setting and achieving?

I’ll be honest with you…I’ve never set goals until I turned 50 and they are not written
Ok! Have you achieved all the ones you’ve set thus far?
Slowly but surely!
