2017 Welcomes you!

Real Estate Agent with Austin Texas Homes


This could be your year. The year things begin to move in a direction for you that has real purpose and meaning. How? Here are two things you can do...


1. Put last year behind you. Refuse to drag bad habits, unforgiveness, anger and frustration over last years events into this year. Make a clean start. I know it's easy for me to day but harder to do. Agreed. All of us struggle to make a fresh start because yesterdays news is part of our story. That's ok. Things happened to you but they don't have to make you. By letting go you are free to embrace what is ahead of you.


2. Get Spiritually fit. We spend a lot of time on our physical bodies. We are either feeding what they want or whipping them into shape. It's not a bad thing to get into shape but there is more to you than your body and if you only work out your body in the end you will be just an attractive mess. My wife and I made a commitment when we first got married to make our spiritual growth a priority. We have never regretted that decision. We regularly attend worship services, we pray together and read the Bible. We have grown a great deal spiritually and that has helped us emotionally, physically, mentally and socially.

Hi Alan... no doubt not looking back and letting it drag us down is a big deal. And as you said, sometimes, easier to say than to do. Happy 2017 to you and yours.

Alan, Great way to start the new year. Staying healthy physically and spiritually is important. Eating right, surfing and staying in the word works for me.

Keep the good & expel the bad. You're right Alan, this is a great time to reassess & take personal inventory. Hope you have a great 2017!

Good morning Alan.  2016 is gone and I don't let any of the bumps in the road affect me.  they are in my rear-view mirror as I travel down the newly paved road of 2017

This is great advice. Probably the best idea for a new year resolution I've seen yet! :)
