Now that that's been said, I want to talk about goals. See, every day we have a new chance to change or to be better. You don't need to wait for a new year. Today you can make the choice to be different. What are you doing to better yourself for the new year? Look back on 2013, was it good? Was it bad? How can you learn from the experience? What negative things are you going to cut out of your life this year? I hope a lot of you will be making the brave choice to recover this year. If you're struggling, you can overcome the struggle. Use this time or renewal to your advantage. You don't have to settle for a bad or even just an OK life. You can thrive. The choice is entirely up to you. This year you can change the way you see yourself, cut out fat talk, make new friends, speak up, overcome anxiety, eat and be happy, and love yourself. Nothing is impossible. Its a new year. You can do it!
There is one thing I would love every single one of you to do this year and its my constant prayer for each of you: and that's for you to get to know Jesus. To accept that He died on the cross to pay for your sins, and that through faith in Him, you have eternal life. Not by works, but by Him. I know a lot of you guys think I'm some religious nut for saying that, but I'm not, I promise. Think of it like this, I have something that I have experienced and I love it, and I want to share that with you. If I believe that through Jesus you can have eternal life, how can you get mad at me for wanting to share that with you? All I know is that I have found a peace beyond understanding, and I want you to experience that same peace.
I know, that was a lot of rambling. But to sum it up, if you didn't think you'd make it this far, I am so freakin proud of you. Seriously. That is amazing. You rock! So here's to another amazing year! Keep pressing on! And for everyone, you can make changes. It starts with you, and deciding you don't want to live this way anymore. We were meant to live for so much more. You can do this.
