A Message to Anyone Who Feels as if They Failed This Year


Hi, guys. Today I have a really short but hopefully an encouraging post. It was written on this day last year. Of course things have changed since then, but the message still applies. <33

~ * ~

This year, I was really hoping to form good habits. Read my Bible every day. Get up early. Exercise. Eat well. Read books. Write a lot. And so forth. 

Well, I failed most of them. But you know what? It’s not too late to start over again. And that’s what I’m going to do. 

This September, I challenged myself to write 100 words a day. I surpassed that goal most days. And I’m determined to keep on. If I miss one day, I’ll catch up the next and keep on. 

This year, I challenged myself to read 365 books. Next year, I’m not going to set myself a reading goal—I’ll be busier—but I will challenge myself to read at least a chapter a day. 

Starting now, I will strive to read my Bible every day—if I fail, I will pick myself up and go on.

I’m going to take another try at losing weight. If I miss one day, I’ll pick myself up and go on.

I’m going to set 10 minutes a day aside to do some stuff I’ve needed to do but don’t have the time to do. If I miss one day, I’ll just get back to it the next day. 

Making good habits take effort, but it also takes forgiveness. Have you failed your resolutions for this year? It’s not too late. Pick yourself up, and start working on them. 💕 The Lord forgives us when we fall—let’s forgive ourselves and move on in His strength.
