As it is now a new year; for many that means changing plans, creating new plans and ideas, makings amends where need be, fine-tuning certain areas of their lives, readjusting and redirecting their focus and energy, on and on the list goes.
Also for many, it only takes about two weeks into the new year to lose sight of the goals and plans they had set at the beginning of the new year. Maintaining the same energy from January first throughout the year is the challenge. Either laziness creeps in, or we begin to get distracted with things that shouldn’t be distracting us in the first place. Even, some start the comparison game and get discouraged when it is only two weeks into the year and their friends are already doing better than them.
Water your own plants. Pay no attention to what others are doing or not doing because their journey will never be your journey. Let this year be the year that you actually consciously and intentionally focus on yourself and achieve all the goals you set at the beginning of the year.
Aren’t you tired of setting goals and not accomplishing them? Aren’t you tired of always setting the same goals years after years after years? Allow yourself to make this year mark the beginning of change; no matter how little. You have within you the ability to make that change. You have within you the power to make that change.
Water your plants and it will grow. But you can’t keep neglecting it and still expect it to grow. Whatever “plants” represents for you: be it education, marriage, family, career, finance, etc. It needs your attention- take care of it, invest in it, and protect it. In due time, the seeds you planted will become a tree that bears fruits.
