I don’t make New Year resolutions. I think they are well-intended in most cases, but I can’t say I know anyone who has ever kept one. I certainly never have! Having said that, I want something new this year. I want to be different. I want to change. I started a stained glass business last year with every intention of making it my “exit plan” from my current career. Well, a year later not only did I not make an exit, I didn’t really get going on my goal at all! Oh sure, I registered the name and am all official, but I just never really got going. A friend of mine always says, “If you want what you have, keep doing what you’re doing.” There’s nothing wrong with what I have. I am very blessed. But if I want things to change, then I’ve got to do something about it. One thing I’ve done is started telling people about my business goals. It puts the word out, but it also puts a certain amount of accountability on me. As a result, I have my first commission designing and constructing some windows for a friend who is having a house built. I will also have a panel up as an item for a silent auction next month. So…things are starting to change. All I have to do is keep the wheels in motion.
I thank God for the many blessings I have. I thank Him for the talents and gifts He has given me. I pray that I will be a good steward of those talents and gifts and use them for His glory.
What’s new with you?
