New year, new me. We’ve all heard it. It’s cute, and it’s catchy. But, it’s not actually true unless we put in the work to make it so.
With prayer, planning, and intention, we can level up (in more ways than one) in the new year. These questions can help!
Reflect and journal on these 7 game-changing questions to get clear on what you need to do to make 2021 your best year yet.
In what ways do I want to show up for myself differently in 2021?
This question touches on the way you’re showing up authentically in your life. Have you been practicing gentleness, kindness, and patience toward yourself? Have you been taking care of yourself well? Think about how you treated yourself in 2020 and how you can establish a better relationship with yourself in 2021.
In what ways do I want to show up for others differently in 2021?
What are your relationships looking like? Have you been showing up as your best self for your loved ones? Use this question to reflect on the health of your relationships and the way you’re contributing to them.
In what ways do I want to strengthen my spiritual life in 2021?
Staying connected to God and growing in your faith is central to having any sort of glow up. Spend some time thinking about your relationship with God and how you can be more committed to your spiritual growth in 2021.
What people, places, behaviors, narratives, and lies do I need to let go of and leave in 2020?
Going to new heights in life and in God means leaving some things behind. Not everything will serve you in your next season. Pray and ask God for wisdom in identifying what is holding you back from his plan for you. Then, let those things go.
How did my day-to-day life align with my values and priorities in 2020? What work do I need to do to realign my day-to-day life?
This question helps us identify where our life is out of alignment. For example, if family is a top priority for you, but you aren’t able to spend much time with them due to work, this area of your life may need adjusting to get back into alignment with your values.
What areas of my life do I need to surrender to God in 2021?
A life surrendered to God is the true key to living our best life. His plans are higher than our plans and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Use this question to reflect on what parts of your life you’re still “in the driver’s seat” of. Let Jesus take the wheel, sis. You won’t regret it.
Where did my money go in 2020? What shifts do I need to make in 2021 regarding this?
Take a look at your credit card and bank account statements. Did most of your money go to bills? Food? Travel? Reflect on the financial decisions you made in 2020 and whether or not you need to adjust your budget. Setting specific, measurable financial goals can help keep you focused, too!
