This is the year – to set that goal and achieve that dream

“This is the year…” – that phrase has been circling around my mind for the past month. This is the year that I want to accomplish my biggest dream. The dream that I have had since I was a little girl. But before I talk about that – I want to share what last year meant to me. Last year was the year that I set that dreaded goal of losing weight.

here’s the answer to how to do almost anything….

It’s a big statement, I know. But I think I have stumbled on THE ANSWER to how to do almost anything. I’m the kind of person whose brain never stops talking – you know what I mean? Always thinking. Always questioning. It drives my male dominated family nuts. (Ever asked a guy what they are thinking? …How can anybody think of nothing??) Sometimes the questions and the thinking is in relation to new ideas, new goals or projects. Then I become paralysed and overwhelmed – where do I start? Here’s some of the questions that I have had this year –…

A man (or woman) is what he thinks about all day long – Ralph Waldo Emerson Conditions are created by thoughts far more powerfully than conditions create thoughts – Norman Vincent…

15 Little Changes I Made to Lose Weight Permanently

  So I’ve had some time to ponder my weight loss journey. What was the one thing that made it successful?

4 Positive Results from Reinventing Yourself One Word at a Time

The My One Word concept has been the most influential personal improvement program that I have ever stuck with. Here are some of the exciting results from My One Word experiments: 1. I’m More Super Sensitive to the Spiritual Side I have heard more from God in the last 4 years with doing My One Word than in the past 40+ years of being a Christian! This is quite a statement. It is true. Maybe it is that I am more ‘in tune’ with God – because isn’t God always speaking to us? My One Word improved my ability to…

Reinvent yourself one word at a time

Have you ever made New Years Resolutions and then break them before the day is out? Have you tried to be a better, healthier and wealthier person but come short? What about your relationship with God – have you tried to deepen it but it still ends up being a Sunday thing? I’ve been there. For years and years I have kept lists of changes that I wanted to see in my life. I am a list person. I like to write lists and tick them off.
