PuarHappy New Year’s Day, dear readers! 2020 is a new year, and the beginning of a brand new decade. PURPOSEFUL. That is the one-word theme I have chosen for this year. In 2020, I want to have or show determination or resolve, and that is what it means to be purposeful. In addition to improving my health, wealth, home, relationships, and overall well-being, I will also be focusing on my acting. This past year, I took my acting career to the next level, and I want to continue building that momentum.

I recently completed an activity to help me generate my 20 for 2020 list. I thought of 20 ways I want to BE in 2020, and they all line up with the improvements that I want to make in my life.

20 Ways to BE in 2020

  • Creative
  • Kinder
  • Energetic
  • Patient
  • Present
  • Productive
  • Consistent
  • Mindful
  • Impactful
  • Simple
  • Sustainable
  • Focused
  • Flexible
  • Committed
  • Courageous
  • Healthy
  • Calm
  • Successful
  • Prosperous
  • Inspiring

Soon, I will share my 20 for 2020 list. In the meantime, I have to get ready to celebrate New Year’s Day with family and friends. In fact, I have to bake a cake for Son #1 who turned 31 years old this morning. New Year’s Blessings to you, dear readers. Happiness!

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Many Catholics use this time for fasting, repentance, prayer, and reflection. Lent is a time of improvement and a chance to regain self-control. Personally, I have never been very successful at keeping my Lenten sacrifices. In large part, it is usually because I am trying to give something up like chocolate or sweet treats. I always fail…miserably. This is also the time the Girl Scouts are delivering their cookies. Damn those Tagalongs! I acknowledge I have a problem with sugar.

Instead of giving something up during Lent, I try to do something that will benefit me in a spiritual way. I would like to be more prayerful. I’ve decided this Lent to start reading the Bible daily. I found a plan to read the Bible in one year. I discovered it on the blog Money Saving Mom. Initially, I will have to double up on days to catch up on my reading since the plan actually started the first of January. My Lenten journey begins today, and my Lenten promise is to be more prayerful by reading the Bible daily. What will you be doing during Lent?

“And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him. Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the Good News of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the Good News.”

~ Mark 1:12-15
