Time for some Inventory

Happy Friday!!

Can you believe we're already in September? It baffles me how fast time pasts.

The other day as I was scrolling through the hundreds of notes on my iPhone, I came across my "Forward List," for this year. On January 1st, instead of making New Year's resolutions, I decided that the word in 2014 for me would be forward. 

As I reflected on that list, I was shocked to see just how much of it I had checked off. How one simple change in attitude and perspective, has allowed me to come so far in these nine months. Staring at that list, I couldn't help but think, "Now what?"

What do I do about the unchecked boxes on my list?

Where do I go from here?

How can I take the momentum of January 1st 2014 all the way through to December 31st 2014?

If you're like me, writing down goals and then going back to evaluate them can be daunting. To take an inventory of where we wanted to go and have actually gone takes courage, honesty and a willingness to start over. 

I don't know what your year has looked like up until now, but 2014 isn't done yet! God still has a plan for this year for you if you're willing to pick yourself back up, look over your list and then decide that the only place to go, is FORWARD.

If there's one thing that I've learned on this journey is that while reminiscing on the past is great, I cannot bring those moments and times back. Sometimes I absolutely don't want to. But what I do know is that whatever is ahead of me will always be so much better than what has been behind me. 

I hope you will do a little re-evaluating with me in this month of September and then take the momentum of January 1st and apply it to make the next four months the best months of 2014!!

Have a great weekend!
