Street Signs for the Journey

Hi everybody!  Well I'm back to blogging again and have decided to blog a little bit each week so that I can include the weekly tool for those who missed group and would like to have it.  This week we talked about goals. Goals simply give us direction in our lives and that is exactly what we are looking for in lifestyle change.  Direction.  Direction towards health and wellness and wholeness. As we think about our goals for the upcoming weeks and months, we can look for signs that will tell us if we are heading toward our goals.  When my goal was to go hiking and camping in Montana, I followed every single sign that pointed toward Glacier, Montana.  The signs that told me where I was and if  I was on the right path where extremely important.  It is the same with our journey of lifestyle change.  What are the signs that you're seeing on your journey?  What are the signs telling you about where you are on the path towards your goals? 

The new year stands before us, like a book waiting to be written.  We can help write that story by setting goals.

The tool: 
Write the title of each of the 12 chapters of your book.  You can be creative in naming these chapters and what they represent for the goals that will give direction to the next 12 months of your life.

I look forward to seeing each of you next week.  We will be talking about choices and honing our ability to recognize them. Have a great weekend!

Julie...this is soooo good! I like that idea of looking for signposts. For me, I am looking for messages or tiny kisses from God. I am excited about my 12 Chapters. Great Idea! Haven't honed them all out yet, but I will. Thanks for sharing your great giftedness and knowledge with us. We love you!

Glad you're back, Julie...missed you. I'm thankful for you including me. What an inspired idea: 12 Chapters. Looking forward to hashing that out.
