New Year Success Defined and Wise Woman Link-Up

Many of us define success differently.

This new year I want you to think about what defines success for you.

For some it might be big bold dreams.

And for others it is achieving simplicity in life.

To love better.

Serve others.

Live joyfully in the dance of life.


Taking baby steps.

Creating a haven and refuge for those we love.

Being still and listening.

Relishing the moment.

Cultivating gentleness and peace.

Sitting at the feet of the Father.

Growing in kindness.

Helping those in need.

Patience- taking it day by day with the children.

Giving grace abundantly (and still giving it again).

Building up instead of tear down.

Bring life and healing.

Valuing time with the children and being available for them.

Sharing Him more...

Whatever you do, don't let others define success for you.

The Lord has made each one of us unique and today is the day to slow down enough to listen to what He is speaking to your heart. His definition of success for you and not the worlds.

And take it day by day!

I love your vision of New Year's success. So encouraging, and it focuses on what really matters!

It's easy and tempting to feel intense pressure - especially where I live- to focus on all of the outward trappings of "success." I read this blog because it brings me back to what the Lord asks of me. I feel sane again.
God bless you this new year!

I'm linking up for the first time. I'm link #48 and 49...the first one is messed up because I couldn't get the photo. Is there a way to erase that one, and just keep the good one with the thumbnail photo? Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)

Dear Heather,

It's fixed!

Many blessings...

I love your blog, but the little floaty things distract me and I can't focus... sorry:(
