The Bible speaks many times of the blessed year. Joel Osteen made reference of it many times when we had the honor of going to see him Friday night, and listen to his inspiring message, along with inspiring messages from his beautiful family members (mother, wife, son and daughter) and other ministers in the surrounding Jackson, Mississippi area.
We can choose to have our year of Jubilee any time we wish. All we have to do is start with hope. From hope springs faith. Faith turns to believing. Believing turns to Prayers Answered, Relief, Joy, and Possibility. For we all know, or at least we should, that “With God, all things are possible.”
All you have to do is focus on what it is you want for your life. You declare that is what’s going to happen. Send it to God and the universe. And watch things happen for you! Great things are in store for us this year! This is going to be a year of true celebration and relief. Relief from debt. Relief from sickness. Relief from worry. Relief from depression. What will you release today? Will you start your year of Jubilee today? What do you declare for your life?
It has been a good week. We are better, health-wise. We still have a little ways to go before being completely well, but hey, better is always good. It’s been this change in weather. Dry one day. Rain the next day or two or three. Sort of warm and comfortable one day. Cold and shivery the next. The weather is playing tricks on our sinuses, and that’s no fun, but still, better is good. I’ll take it.
Been doing well on my 101 Things list, albeit not as swell as I’d like, as I’m not accomplishing each of those daily things I’d set out to do, but still, getting them done most days of the week, so I’ll take that, too. I can see improvements. I can see that I’m trying and doing, so it’s a good thing. I will accomplish all I set out to do during these next 1001 days. I am determined. I am stubborn and am learning follow through, and I believe in me. I have much to do during this year, and I’m looking forward to all these things. I’ll be updating my list online weekly.
How has your year been, thus far? I know, we are only one week in, but, you know, much can happen in one week. Did you set resolutions for the new year that you’ve kept? Did you break some already? Or did you set goals? The great things about goals you set for the next 1001 days, or even the next 365, or the next 30, is that you still have time to accomplish those goals. The wonderful thing about each new day is that you can begin again. A fresh, new day, with no mistakes in it. A day full of possibility. Full of accomplishment. Productivity. Or even rest. Because we all need some of that.
Getting rest is just as important as getting things done. What do you need in your life? More productivity? Or more down time? Some rest? Try to find balance in your life, if not during the week, then make some time for balance during your weekend. It is great to be productive. It is just as good to get the rest that you so desperately need. And that is how you stay in good health. To get your rest in. Don’t forget to take your vitamins, drink your water and orange juice, and get plenty of fresh air and sunlight on your face. All in moderation, though. Don’t overdo. Don’t forget to get some sort of exercise in, also. Talking to me, too.
Have you made your list of 101 Things in 1001 Days? It will help you get motivated to making some changes in your life, break some habits, and make some healthy new ones. I will do my best to keep that list of mine updated, as to how my progress is going, or not. ;) I’m sure I’ll do better on some things more than others, but I will strive to accomplish all I have set for myself for these next -1001 days.
I hope you are well, and your family is well. Take care of yourself. Do better than that. Celebrate yourself. Because you are awesome! You are beautiful, talented, smart, funny. And you are loved. You know, words truly have power. Make it a point, daily, to only use good, positive words for yourself, your life, and for others. You will be amazed at how differently you start to see things and how differently your life will change for the better once you start making this a daily habit. Start now. Say it with me:
I am awesome!
I am beautiful!
I am everything I choose to be!
I am talented!
I am creative!
I am smart!
I am funny!
I am loved!
I am special!
I am happy!
I am healthy!
Does it sound or seem corny/cheesy ? Get over that. And get on with your declarations. Choose your life. Choose who you want to be. Choose who you ARE. It’s not for who you will be, or what you want. It’s for who you are, and what you have – right now. Declare it for yourself now. And watch it all unfold. This is what it means to have faith and believe. You believe it’s been already given, and then. It is given.
I look forward to hearing each of your accomplishments. Each of your declarations. Each of your triumphs. Each of your sweet new lives unfold for the better, because you believed, and believe every day. Believe it. Know it. Live it.
Hugs and a smooch! I love you, my leetle squishies! ;)
