For several weeks I’ve been zoomed in close on my word of the year, and my stewardship goals but sometimes stepping back to see how the little pieces fit into the bigger picture is helpful. Today I feel the need to step back a smidge and revisit WHY stewardship is my focus this year.
If you came over yesterday, looking for my weekly rambling, I’m sorry to disappoint. I find that I’m easing into 2019 a little slower than I planned. My sister has been visiting, and since we don’t see each other in person nearly often enough, taking time to spend with her was a big priority.
In addition, while the goals I mentioned in last week’s post have begun to crystallize and become more clear, several of them are pretty big and daunting prospects. Rather than hitting the ground running, it feels like I need to take January to prepare myself, mentally and spiritually, for what I’m going to be attempting this year.
So while today’s post is a bit shorter than normal, I did want to come over and leave a little note to let you know: I have some big stuff in the works! But as is often the case with good things, it’s taking some time.
Here we are, four days into a new year. Does anyone else fight the feeling that you’re already behind in the first week of the year, or is that just me?
Starting a new year, with all its promise and potential…right at the tail end of December…when things have been crazy-hectic-yet-simultaneously-completely-unstructured…I may be way off here, but it seems counter-intuitive to me. Planning goals for the new year while I feel like my routines are burning to the ground around me is a little crazy-making, or at least it has been this year.
