YES to resolutions!

The fitness industry will say, "Don't wait till Monday to START", Nike Says "Just Do It" and Facebook is riddled with implied shame for those with new years resolutions. Crowding to the gym like the promised land, eating healthier, detoxing, getting organized, reading more, sleeping better, you NAME it and people will vow it and those who have it all together look down there noses. 

I SAY DO IT! With resolve, leap into your NEWNESS this January 1st! Here are 5 great reasons why:  

1) It's always mentally refreshing to prepare for change. Nothing FEELS better than to prepare for that start date. That moment when you know that you are ready to change. Just BE ready and leap into it confident you can keep your change! Every great step, project and success story has a start date, don't be sheepish if yours is January 1st! Sit down, create a game plan, get on your game face and ring in the new year prepared! 

2) writing out your goals and visions for a period of time will prove more LIKELY for your success!! 
You are 70% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them out, so why not try! Make your list, check it twice and even if you never see it again, you are more geared toward success. Just like tracking food, writing your workouts, journal writing and creating vision boards, writing resolutions will give them staying power than just an "inner vow" to do/be/feel better! 

3) It's Biblical! God is ALL about newness!!
God sent Jesus to this world so we could BE NEW!! 2nd Corinthians says we are already NEW creations in Christ. Revelation says that God makes ALL THINGS new and Isaiah below gives us hope that when promised newness of life and in life, even the driest path will spring forth life!  

Isaiah 43:19

Behold, I am doing a new thing;

    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

I will make a way in the wilderness

    and rivers in the desert. 

4) Resolution means a course of action determined or decided on. Not perfected, not completed, not wavering. It will take all year, sometimes it can take a few. Little by little one walks far and over the course of year with a clear, God ordained, written path decided on, you are BOUND to succeed! 

5) You will inspire others. We are light to be light for others.  Don't be weary to be a resolutioner, be who you are and take someone with you, someone without the courage to go it alone! Or go it alone and see who you inspire to create their plan, step into their newness and create the life they always wanted. The effect is contagious and seeing others spark with determination and motivation is the best new years gift you can get! 

Happy new years, may the coming year be full of blessings and joy in your hearts!

 Galatians 6:9 
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up!
