New Year’s Revolutions for 2016


The Beatles – Revolution

I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions because I never keep them. I believe a better idea is to set goals. Maybe I could even call mine New Year’s Revolutions!

My #1 Priority is to get closer to God, increase my faith and to be a Lamp in a World of darkness. Yes I know that at times I’ll backslide but only Jesus was perfect. I on the other hand am being perfected over the course of time.  Following Jesus Christ means doing whats right, standing up for good against evil even in the face of opposition.  Continue being an Autism Advocate fighting for the rights of developmentally disabled people. That includes being the best Sister I can be for my brother Stephen. Stephen may have Autism but autism does not have Stephen. He is Blessed and Highly Favored of the Lord.

Me and Stephen March 1964. Dig my crazy pigtail hat!! LOL!!

So Dear Followers and Subscribers Please be Patient with me cause God is not through with me yet!

“Please Be Patient With Me” (1979)- Albertina Walker

My main goal for 2016 is to be more solution oriented. I know that in the past I’ve been a whiner & complainer. As this was pointed out to me by friends I had to truthfully and painfully examine myself and listen to the words coming out of my mouth. I Do Not want to be a card carrying member of the bitch & moan society!  Even if inside I’m afraid I must work through my fear onto Victory!  As the Bible says Life and death are in the power of the tongue.

Proverbs 18:21 King James Version (KJV)

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

As a Woman thinks so is she in Her Heart.  Therefore I must Focus and not get sidetracked by other peoples demands and expectations.

Proverbs 23:7

Basically my goals for 2016 are a continuation of those set in 2015 & 2014. However my emphasis for 2016 is to focus more on building up my pension and retire plan monies. If God wills and my body holds up I plan to retire in 2018. More Soulful Strut Walking exercises. I don’t really set a number of miles while walking I just keep a steady pace and try to go one block further than the previous strut.

More writing and more photography!  http://roamingurbangypsy.com/

Commit to creating more photo-collages. I know that I’ve been lacking in this goal point.

So with that in mind I will keep eating as healthy as possible, get more rest and maintain my exercise program so that by the time I hit 59/60 I’ll be fit and financially stable to enjoy my retirement. Happy 2016!!

And Still I Rise…….I Rise. I Rise. I Rise.

  1. Very good!

    Appropriate that you should have a dancing blog name so that you can be elegant as you perform your revolutions to your great choice of music.

    Looking forward to dancing through 2016 with you!

  2. Great post Deb! And you’re right, great minds do think alike 🙂 I have been growing in my faith and like you want to continue to grow in it. Nothing is possible without His guidance and protection; of that I am sure. I have no doubt that you will accomplish what you seek to, and that you and Stephen will have your best year yet in 2016. Blessings!
