Week 15: Lamenting ~ word of the month

Owner unknown.
I wrote this post earlier on in the year but I think it's so applicable this December too because most people are looking at what they had set to accomplish by the end of the year and not much has changed. I happy to say I took some steps and stepped out of my comfort zone (as I read recently in your comfort zone there is no room for growth). I am happy to say I feel I am doing what I said I would do in March and living my life proactively, loving me and most importantly having God as the pilot in my life
****************************
When you heard the title of this post what was the first thing that came to mind? Me myself and I we thought "laminates" I know crazy right?? Yep indeed crazy because I am not talking about laminates but the full meaning of the word lamenting! Lamenting is a word used to express regret, why am I using it now? Well I do personally have regrets but the main reason is because it was the word used at the youth service I recently attended.

March is a time when many people start to either express regrets because they did not start working on their New Years resolution or because they are now realising they were being unrealistic and are now giving up the resolutions. January and most of February most gyms across the country were packed with people signing up to gym memberships or even gym classes. I am sad to announce that I am one of those who regretting not doing my gym schedule as I had promised myself I would do. Though it was not a New Years resolution because I had in fact started going to the gym last October but regardless march is the month I have had a moment to reflect and verse out my regret. 

So now we have found out that most people are lamenting this month, what's the next step? Well for me personally is to change my outlook on things, I have always been a personal who procrastinates a lot and i did mention when I started a July dreamer that procrastination is a thing of the past now I will be a doer. I must confess (pun tended) that I have not really changed much in way of procrastination. I still find myself day/night dreaming about things I could just actually get up and do that instance instead of overthinking things. So here is my new plan:

* I do not have to join another gym, where I am now I am getting the exercise I need. LIVING PROACTIVELY
* I have started taking charge of my being, it has become exhausting trying otherwise. MOVING FORWARD and LOVING ME
* God is now my main pilot and I a co-pilot of my life. GOD's IN CHARGE 

So this is my new plan which is effective immediately, What is or was your plan for 2014?

I would recommend you to relax and do one thing at the time. That works for me. And of course we all think in doing things that we never get to do, but we are humans. It is not an excuse of course but you should focus in what you do fine, because you are very talented and have many qualities! :)

I've been stressing out way too much about finishing things up by the end of the year. Usually I do pretty well on my resolutions, but this year was a total fail. I try to do monthly goals though to feel like i'm starting on a new slate every month.. but really starting on a new slate everyday is better. i heard from someone that it's hard to get things done when someone is constantly being mean to you.. so it's important to be nice to yourself. :)

I have so many regrets in my life and it really bothers me because I wish I could just focus on the positive and not the negative. I try not to make New Years Resolutions for the fact that if I fail them I'll be so mad at myself and I can't spend March being regretful and sad because it's my birthday month ;) I never used to stick my gym schedule either but it's great that you're leading a pro-active lifestyle now Myrabev and getting all the exercise you need from that. Continue loving yourself in 2015, you're such a lovely person :) x

This is timely for most of us as you noted. This is one of the few years that I am really proud of how far I've come. Sure, I would love to be further along but I understand that it's a journey and I am doing my best to enjoy just that.

It's so hard to stick to plans that aren't fun (like exercise or eating better!). In 2014, I wanted to lose the rest of my baby weight, and did it (plus some)! It wasn't much fun, but I feel so much better now. In 2015, I hope to exercise more regularly and keep growing my blog. Both require patience and determination, and I'm hoping I can stay focused!

I love this post! I really need to stop feeling bad about myself sometimes, and just suck it up! Sometimes I tend to mope around, and it's not good for my family or myself!

How interesting. I love your word of the month, really gives you time to ponder a certain thought. I always try to tell myself to live for the moment and try your best. Sometimes we may feel broken down but we always have to remember to get back up and try to stay optimistic. Very inspirational words.

Thank you for this burst of motivation and positivity! I think it's important to try and have a quiet moment to ourselves every now and then so we can just relax and unwind. I'm really bad at sticking to plans and deadlines, so I decided to quit my job and work at home, and guess what? I make more money and my productivity is better than ever.

Really great blog post and thanks for the breakdown of the word lamenting. I told myself years ago I would not be so hard on myself to make New Years Resolutions, I just want to see from year to year that I grew and mature. My New Years Resolutions for 2014 and will be the same if not more for 2015 was to be a better blogger! I feel I am definitely a better blogger than 2013 and I definitely want a goal to be a full-time blogger by 2015 I am giving it to God with my own preservence!

I don't usually cry over spilled milk. As they always say, it won't do you any good. What I do when I feel down, I take a bath and make myself feel better and it always works!

But if it is too much to take, I keep a secret blog to pour out my emotions.. you can call it my "lamentstation" haha
