VIBES WITH NKS-- GETTING YOUR YEAR RIGHT!




GETTING YOUR YEAR RIGHT!






I’m a reflective person. This time of year, when we start to see all the “best of” reflections online and in the news, I like to do my own personal reflection. How was the year? What can we learn from it? How can I do better next year?
Lets go on a journey, we are going to ask our selves 5 questions the first two will come this week and the other questions the subsequent weeks. 



What was great?

List some of the highlights of your year. What gave you the most pleasure in life? Make sure they merit repeating—sin can have an immediate pleasure—but plan ways to rekindle those emotions in the new year. Most likely they involve relationships. The new year is a great time to plan some intentional efforts to strengthen relationships—spend more time with family and friends. Maybe you enjoyed the times you spent writing. Take some intentional steps to discipline yourself to do that more. Remember how good it felt that day you served people less fortunate than yourself? Well, now you know something you need to do more of in the new year.


What wasn’t great?

Think of some things that are draining to you personally. Again, it may be some relationship in your life. It could be a job or a physical ailment. It could also be that whatever it is that isn’t great has been around for more than a single year. But, chances are you’ve never taken the hard steps to do something about it. Sometimes recognizing those things is the first step to doing something about them. (Your answer may be that a relationship has ended—and there’s nothing you can do about it. Maybe this is your year to move forward again—even in spite of the pain.) Could this be the year?
