Daily Prompt- To Boldly Go

Daily Prompt

An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2014 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self improvement!

Goal-setting is a favorite past time for folks at the end of one year approaches and the promise of a new one can be felt. It is interesting the way we demarcate and can “close the book” on a bad year and turn toward a better future simply by turning a calendar page. I have never been one to make resolutions, but I do think about the kind of things I can do to improve.

My number one goal is to be a better Christian and constantly work on sharing my faith and beliefs. I understand everyone I encounter will not be receptive to my words or feelings, but as a child of God I am directed in the Holy Bible to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…Matthew 28:19a. This means to work and serve in whatever ways are possible to try to fulfill my charge. I have tried to do just that in the non-fiction writing I put on my blog. By sharing my experiences I hope to inspire others to become more aware of their purpose and opportunities.

Another goal is to be a better husband and father. I am blessed to have the perfect partner, one who deals with my inconsistencies so well. I know there are days when just surviving the day is a feat to be celebrated far and wide. My focus easily drifts and when it does so does our relationship. I suppose it is part human frailty and the story of a busy life.

Being a good father is certainly something I can always improve. The interesting thing is that it is a constantly moving target. I am happy to say I get to experience raising both a boy and a girl, with each of their unique challenges. My children will turn 19 and 16 this year and as my son continues to transition into adult hood I still feel there is so much to teach him. The same applies to my daughter, who still thinks of me as a hero.

I want 2014 to be the year I finally am published. Whether it be my first fiction novel or one of my short stories, I am ready to move on to this phase of my writing career. I also hope to expand my reach through my blog as I continue to take part in the wonderful blog challenges and subjects that come along. I have found several great blogs during my first year on WordPress and I hope to continue that trend.

I look forward to reading other goals through this Daily Prompt, perhaps I will discover some goals I would like to include in my 2014 plan.
