I’ve been thinking about a few things as we all prepare to be a better version of ourselves in the new year.
I know there are things in my own life I need to work on. I’ve got some not so great habits that I can’t seem to kick (diet soda is one – we’ll talk about that next week). And, I’ve got some other changes I’m working on.
What about you?
I’m so excited to share a message today from a good friend of mine – John Driver.
John is a teaching pastor in Mr. Juliet, Tennessee, as well as an author of several books and well-known speaker. He also happens to be married to a good friend of mine, which makes him even cooler.
As I prepare for New Year New You 2017 (there’s still time to register, so do it now if you haven’t), I thought I’d share some really awesome truth from John. So, without further ado…
How to Outrun Your Chubby Inner Kid
Happy New Year!
As 2016 ends and 2017 begins, I wanted to take the opportunity to wish you well on this new journey.
I want to give you some encouraging and uplifting words to help spur you on toward the best year you’ve had yet.
And, I believe 2017 could be just that for you – and me.
Before we go any further, let me start by saying – You’re Awesome!
As Christmas is approaching, it’s easy to get caught up in everything that’s going on and forget that. So, I wanted to remind you.
I’m certainly guilty of losing focus. I can get caught up in making my lists and checking them twice…or 50 times. Get this for her. Order that for him. Clean that. Pick that up. Wash those. Straighten that. Mail this. You get the picture.
Of course, my lists always seem to get longer the more things I mark off. Hmmm?
How about you?
It’s that time of year again!
Yes – it’s Christmas (aka, “the most wonderful time of the year”), but that’s not exactly what I’m talking about. It’s also the time when people start throwing around a few specific phrases.
“I’ll get back on track in January.”
“I’ve just gotta get through these holidays.” (more…)
