Last year, we began giving each year a theme based on what we intend to accomplish. Why? Because 2011 was “The Year of Struggle” and I did not want our problems to be our focus. Bill and I determined that 2012 would be “The Year of Productivity.” While the year was just as difficult as “The Year of Struggle” – perhaps even more so – we were able to accomplish a tremendous amount because we were focused on doing everything well, for the glory of God.
As we diligently worked, I was able to accomplish all of my professional goals:
- Create and maintain an editorial calendar.
- Publish an ebook.
- Guest post on at least five other blogs.
- Attend a blogger’s conference.
- Have an estore and an affiliate program.
- Make $150 a month from the blog by the end of the year.
However, in my attempts to succeed professionally, I failed to spend much time working on my personal goals. My weight only changed when my thyroid went crazy. My home is still unorganized, although some of the piles have been rearranged.
So, I am taking a blogging break. For the next two weeks, I am going to spend time with my family and time on my knees. I am going to be cleaning like a crazy woman to rid my home of germs. I am going to be evaluating what my goals should be for the New Year.
I would certainly appreciate it if you would just take a moment to pray for me: that my family would regain their health, that I would gain a fresh perspective on how to balance my time, and that I would hear from the Lord about the direction I should go in my personal and professional life in the next year.
Thank you so much.
