It is the day of New Year's Eve. Some of us feel compelled to set goals. I used to be that way. Anymore, I try to order my life by priorities. Though they (goals and priorities) have similarities, I see a difference between them.
Goals, the good ones anyway, have a deadline, a method of measuring one's success in achieving them, specific steps. Priorities provide a way of looking at life through the lens of perspective. That's what I'm hoping to achieve.
I'm guessing your priorities are much the same as mine: faith, family, friends, and purpose. If I give my days to strengthening one or more of these, then I feel I am on the right path.
For the new year, I'm going to shift focus a bit in this blog with a theme of "Joy in the Journey," which I borrowed from our Relief Society. Gratitude will still find its way into the blog because I believe that joy and gratitude are symbiotic.
I invite you to join me as we take a journey into joy.
So, for today, I am grateful for the journey into a New Year.
