However, I have discovered that if I do little changes at a time, I am much more likely to move forward to a larger goal. For example, I’m working on getting healthier, and breaking down what I need to do to achieve that goal, makes it more manageable. Taking walks during lunch a few times a week, packing healthier snacks and lunches, and drinking more water while I’m at work, are a few of my small goals.
Also, when I do personal disciplines, I am doing something for myself. Such as going to bed at a decent hour. When I get enough sleep, I’m much more aware of myself and those around me. I make better decisions, and react much better to situations around me. And when I take care of me better, I have more energy to invest in the lives of others and in my relationship with God. When I’m not focused on God, I miss out one what He has in store for me. How He wants to change me and mold me. To be the woman, the daughter, He has intended for me to be.
