Happy New Year and achieving your purpose

It has been a while since I have posted. During the past year I have gone through some physical issues that I am still trying to get taken care of. I have thoughts of posting but can not get the energy to do so. I am sure many of you understand this.

It is the New Year now. 2011. During this time of year, many people will make resolutions that are broken by the end of the month. Do you make resolutions? I set goals each year that I want to work on. Then I choose one each month to work on. It takes 21 days to form a habit. That makes good sense to set one goal a month to incorporate into your life.

So what do you want to accomplish this year? Do you want to get stable mentally? Emotionally? Physically? Spiritually? Do you want to do something for someone else this year?

Right now I am reading this new book called “Success on Purpose.” It is an excellent read about aligning your values, visions, and roles to accomplish your life’s mission. What is your mission here on earth? Do you feel that because of mental health issues you do not have a purpose? Not true. If you are still breathing, you have a purpose that God specifically set for you.

How do you go about finding that mission? There are some helpful books out there that can help you. The above mentioned one is wonderful. Read some good books on goals also. Do you have a dream in your secret of hearts that you would like to do? Well, you can still accomplish your purpose even if burdened by mental issues or even physical ones. Takes time to pinpoint what it is, eliminate your obstacles, and achieve your dreams.

Remember, you can do it. One day at a time. Recovery and success are possible.

Hang in there.
