I decided to wear my goals every day in 2015. It's really hard to claim you lost your way when the reminder is right there on your finger. I think it's a bit like tying a red string on your finger...except way cuter and more permanent. And I don't have to remember what the red string was for in the first place.
Lisa Leonard. There was a sale, and I had a coupon, and I went for it. And then I ran to the mailbox every day to see if they were there. Last week they arrived. I love them. They are each handmade, unique, and perfect in their imperfection. As I slipped them on my finger, I knew they would help remind me what I want to accomplish this year. I don't have to be perfect, but I have to make progress. Every day.
The 70x7 ring is a reminder of this Bible verse. It is important to me to try to be the best kind of Christian I can be every day. Some days I'm better at it than others. Some days it's easy to forgive, and some days it seems impossible. I am a big feeler and a people-pleaser. My heart gets squished a lot. Because I'm bad at setting limits on what I will do for people, I often get taken advantage of. When this happens, I need to forgive. I'm working on this. This verse reminds me that forgiveness is a constant thing--forgiving someone 270 times is a whole lot, but I'm going to try.
Side note: last year I bought a little necklace with "commit" on it. I wore it once and then I lost it. I think it was a sign. I already feel like "progress" is a better fit than "commit" ever was. : )
