A New Year A New Me

Posted by Teran Martin on

At first, this mentality of I’ll do it later crept in slowly and I would eventually get around to that annoying task of cleaning up that mess…

but it swiftly overcame my life.

I don’t know if I’m relating to anyone out there, but I see now how this became a very steep hill and I went rolling down it in a hurry.

I remember in Highschool I was always the driver if someone needed a ride, I had no problem opening the door for a friend.

But to be honest with you… someone asked me just last month if they could walk me to my car to help me out with my purchase.

I shyly laughed and shrugged them off politely saying thanks but no thanks…

I hobbled away with two toddlers and arms filled with my gifts for the holiday approaching…

why did I turn away the help?

I always wished people would offer to help.

Especially when they see a mom struggling with such young ones.

Why did I turn them away?

January 1st, the new year had begun and my father asked me what my plans were for the day…

I laughed and said I don’t really know…

even though I had intentions to work and could raddle off many more things I could do…

I didn’t…

To which he kindly confronted me with the reality of my life.

He said, “here’s a to do… go clean your car!”

I looked at him a little puzzled and he said…

“Why put off to tomorrow or next week what you can do today?”

Then he said IT…

I have been so lost in my own head that I wasn’t even aware of the mess that

surrounded me and the mess I was living in…

“Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

2020 was the year of perfect vision, I proclaimed it all year.

I could go into detail about how God has blessed the proclamation and helped it to come true… but that’s for another time.

This is all about finding a new year and a new healthy me.

2021 the year of cleanliness next to godliness.

In so many ways I want to grow in my relationship with the Lord and heal from past hurts but most of all…

I want to be the best woman that God created me to be.

So my goal for 2021 is to work on building healthy habits and healthy patterns that will help me to be the best me I can be…

Which in turn will help my children have the best mom they can have. The lord is my strength and I will not be afraid of that mess… that mess I need to go clean up, today!

I laugh as I write this I am trying to pep talk myself to get up and really go clean up that mess…
