New Year, New You?

New Year’s resolutions are common to many, but if you want my opinion, I haven’t found that making a resolution on January 1st is the magic formula. Resolutions aren’t bad, because it’s always a good idea to look at one’s self and try to figure out if there are things in a person’s life that needs to be changed. But the idea of new year, new you? If only it were that easy.

Let’s start with a simple project of self awareness. Get a piece of paper, or a device to type on, and begin to answer this question:

What people, circumstances, or things are keeping me from living a full life?

And here are the rules while doing this: get it all out. Move past emotion, move past guilt, and look beyond allegiances you’ve build because of time spent with some of these people.

You need to be as objective as possible.

What people in your life are toxic? Are there any people that you need that may be unhealthy for you? An example is a boyfriend that abuses you verbally but you pretend that’s “just the way he is.

What things in your life are escapism vehicles? Food, painkillers, porn? Some people use shopping or technology as an escape. These are generally things that we think help us but often imprison us by creating a unhealthy dependance.

Lastly, what circumstances are in your life that are causing you to orbit around defeat? Are you in a work environment where your co-workers curse the world around them? Is your family so dysfunctional that your potential to live a full healthy life is sucked into their black hole?

A Fresh Start – Brian “Head” Welch

Everyone wishes they could get a do-over of some of the more difficult seasons of life. Struggle is no one’s desire – and yet it’s the hard times that shape a person’s character to ask hard questions about themselves, the people they hang out with, and life itself. But a fresh start is rarely offered us when we continue in the cycle of brokenness and addiction we’ve grown accustomed to. However, in this interview with Brain “Head” Welch, we see that when you decide to give your life back to the one who gave you life in the first place, God gives you a fresh start.

If you’€™re struggling with this issue and need someone to talk to please click the ‘€œchat with a SoulMedic” button at the top of the page. By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’€™s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.

RemedyLIVE is committed to a conversation with you. As a faith based organization we believe the best way to carry out our mission is to serve all of His creation regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, religion or age. Jesus calls us to love Him and love others because God created everyone – even those who don’€™t believe He exists!
