Fabu-You Friday is where I take one of the AWESOME letters I’ve received from one of you – my favorite readers- about how one of the principles in my books has made your life just a little bit better. Each Friday, I will send the chosen letter-writer a Dory charm (suitable to put anywhere you darn well choose…) and one of the randomly chosen comments a copy of the book that inspired the comment. (If you already own the book, I would be happy to send it to a friend of yours who needs a little boost.) See the question at the end of the post for your chance to comment and win!

 

Hi Kathi,

I just wanted to let you know how the Me project is going. I’m only on day 3, but you gotta start somewhere. My afternoon didn’t go as I had planned, but when I was done, I realized that my time spent supported 4 of the dreams I’d put in my journal and I wanted to share it with you. My husband, kids and I spent the afternoon working in our backyard destroying an old sandbox and moving all the sand into our truck. This is how it applies to the Me project.

 

First one of my dreams was more quality time with my husband – totally got some of that today.

 

2nd was more quality time with my kids – again, got lots of that today. Team Robinson Rocks!

 

3rd – to have the kind of backyard that I can entertain and relax in without always focusing on what needs to get done. – Dealing with the old sandbox was one step closer.

 

4th – getting healthy. I burned so many calories today and used muscles I haven’t used in a long time.

 

You are so right. Once you put down on paper your dreams, you start to notice how your everyday life directs you toward the ones that are part of God’s will too. Can’t wait to see what God has planned next.

Way to go Ashleigh! Once you write your dreams and goals down, it becomes so much clearer to see how God is taking everyday steps to make your big dreams a tiny step closer!

Q4U – What is one of the goals that you want to take a step closer to this year. (Or one you are already taking steps closer to!) Comment below – we will announce the winner next Friday.
