The New Resolution: Finish What You Started

I could write another blog about new beginnings and “new year, new me,” but this year feels different.

There is a trend of no more new year,

new beginning resolutions and I’m embracing it!

I understand you may need a fresh start after last year because, for many, it was a whirlwind of the highest of highs and lowest of lows. Nevertheless, let’s embrace the new anti-new beginning thing.

Hear me out!

Maybe you are like me and have habitually procrastinated on things that do not have an instant reward. I know, how millennial of us.

So, this year is the “picking up where you left off”

kind of year.

Also, it is the year not to share the details of what that looks like either. Trust me on that! We all have something we’ve planned and, for whatever reason (fear, disappointment, lack of motivation, etc.) did not follow through. That’s okay! We are picking up where we left off.

Consider what you have left unfinished: a weight loss goal, an unwritten story, a job application, your degree, dating, finally quitting the job you hate, _______________ (fill in the blank).

Let the ringing of the new year be motivation to refuse to celebrate another new year with that dream unfulfilled, that project left unfinished.

So, get out of your funk, stop feeling sorry for yourself, and stop being afraid of what may or may not happen. Beginning today, create a plan with realistic steps toward your goal. It does not matter how long you’ve procrastinated; get out there and finish what you started. Here are two scriptures to meditate on this year!

Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

James 2:17 “Faith without works is dead”

-Ebby
