This year, are you going to survive or thrive?

It’s thrown around so often, but do we really get it?

Has it sunk in that God wants to give us life and life more abundantly?

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10

It started to make sense to me last year, but I promise you it wasn’t because of a New Year’s Resolution.

In fact I fail those miserably!

Instead, I tested out How To Thrive Without A New Year’s Resolution!

I need to start by explaining I am not a goal setter by nature. In the past, I would set a goal or a New Year’s Resolution only to drop it within a week or two. Not my thing.

But I knew I had to do something different in order to see different results. I decided had to take inventory of my life and make some intentional changes in order to see a difference.

Here are some basic things I realized.

  1. I needed to pray. I started praying God would direct the process and help me see why I’ve been struggling so much. Also that He would block my heart from overwhelm (there was a lot to work on) and instead narrow in on the major things instead.
  2. Keep it simple. Like I said there were a lot of things I wanted to change, but instead I focused on the few that would make the most impact.
  3. Get help. I decided I needed some help in the area… ok a LOT of help 🙂 I had a tiny/nonexistent budget and even less time, but I completed my very first online course to get the help I needed. Make Over Your Mornings by Crystal Paine walked me through areas I never even considered, in an easy yet in depth way. The course was totally affordable and I started to see my life and schedule in a different light- so worth it!  You can read all about my process that I recorded to help YOU get started right now and grab a FREE worksheet I created here.
  4. Follow through. Ah the hard part. I had to be intentional to follow through. For me, this happened with the accountability of a dear friend. Without the accountability I would not have gotten so far.

And I Saw Change!

No, it wasn’t year of ease – it was actually a very tough one, but I saw the lasting benefits of resetting my priorities, mindset and schedule.

Did I fail in areas? Yes. But thankfully not nearly as much. More importantly, the work I did before hand made it easier to get back on track when I did fall off.

This last year of being intentional impacted my life so much that I was actually looking forward to another “life inventory” or “life review” if you will. I was excited to grow in my key areas and experience more of the abundant life that God offers us!

How Will I Thrive This Year?

And all of this, my friend, is exactly why I was SUPER excited when I found out that Crystal Paine was coming out with a new holistic health course this year. In 15 Days to a Healthier You, she is going to help us foster good health for our whole self and narrow in on the two most neglected aspects, having a healthy mind and heart.

I have been following Crystal from Money Saving Mom for a while, and maybe you have too. This last year, I (and many others) have seen a change in her -starting from the inside- that is now evident on the outside. God does that, and that is intriguing to me to say the least.

Not only has she made some adjustments to her physical health that allowed her to go off of medication for her eczema and acne, but her growth spiritually is shining through also!

Oh yeah, she has also officially ditched coffee- happily- and feels even better without it?!


Now I am not there, nor do I have the want to ditch my coffee (aka best friend) any time soon, but the other things are enough to make me take notice!

Crystal has taken all of the “how do I experience the same thing” questions she has received this year , and compiled it into a simple, but in depth, practical course 15 Days to a Healthier You.

I grabbed my copy in advance and I’ll tell you, it is awesome!

It’s not a basic, get healthy and fit – template filled course.

In 15 Days to a Healthier You, Crystal will show you what she is sharing here:

I believe you can live like this, and I want to help you make this a reality!

As someone who gets what it’s like to feel exhausted and overwhelmed, I want to come alongside you to teach you the strategies I’ve learned to help you prioritize yourself, nurture your body and your heart, and enjoy each and every day.

I want to share my own journey with you so you can see exactly what it looks like to break free from feeling burned out and worn down so you can live a healthier, more vibrant life. I want to be the voice cheering you on, giving you the encouragement you need to succeed!

Wondering What’s Next?

Here is a bit  from Crystal about what you will get with the program:

Daily 15-minute LIVE videos. In these videos, I’ll be your coach and cheerleader to jumpstart your success to better health! We’ll discuss the daily lessons and projects and I’ll take a few questions live, too. (Note: If you are not on Facebook, don’t worry. We’ll be sending you links to each video the day after they’ve been recorded so you don’t miss out!)

Daily lessons covering important topics like why self-care is important, what self-care really is (probably not what you think!), and why self-care looks different for different people.

Daily projects to help you stay on track and meet your personal goals.

Access to an exclusive members-only private Facebook group where you can find encouragement from others who are going through the series.

Daily accountability through the Project Check-In Threads on the Facebook Group where you can share your progress and struggles with all the participants.

Bonus links and resources I love for additional inspiration.

It really is worth at least checking out or I honestly wouldn’t be sharing it.

But here’s the best part….. It will not be a burden on your after Christmas budget! I couldn’t fathom it if it were 😉

I pray this year will be different for you. Whether you are a goal setter extraordinaire or can’t ever seem to follow through, there can be positive lasting change!

No matter what way you go about it, I encourage you just to take the first step. I never would have imagined that by God’s grace and some intentional actions I could make the changes I have in the right direction!

You can Thrive This Year, really! Take it from someone who has survived most all of her life.

And yes, you can Thrive This Year Without A New Year’s Resolution!
