I remember hearing a friend talk about the defining moments in her life. I was captivated at how she not only remembered them, but remembered every detail. How that moment in time lead to the next and the next. Have you ever thought about or maybe even written down the defining moments in your life? Defining moments are those in which a new dream was dreamed and executed, or a new path was chosen, or perhaps you came to a fork in the road and you made that decision. Your defining moments are what got you to where you are right now in your life. Mine too. As the year comes to an end maybe it is time for you and I both to revisit those moments. They may just give us clarity for what’s next!
If you have ever heard me speak you know I am passionate about people #livingoutloud. Living out loud means taking those dreams and putting them into action. Making those memories, creating those defining moments. What is that for you? Is it a trip? A remodel? A girls weekend? Take a class? A new dog? How about making that happen for you in this coming year? Sure, you have to “plan” for it. Here is where you start. Creating a defining moment and create a life you love.
- Write it down and share it with someone who will hold you accountable
- Pinpoint a date of execution (start)
- Breakdown the plan to get there…success is in the details
- Identify foreseen obstacles and decide now that you will overcome them
- Step out in faith
Everybody loves a new year but if we aren’t careful we can simply repeat the last. Skip the obvious or cliche and step out there and claim something new for you. This year make it a defining moment. This is the best time to sit and reflect and make some decisions and plans for 2019. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
