July 1. Depending on how you look at it, half the year is over, or you have half the year yet to go.
Talking to a friend today who alerted me that half the year is over, it’s July 1. I hadn’t thought about it that way. This friend was lamenting that he hadn’t accomplished what he wanted to. I added "yet."
There’s still another half a year left. If you feel like you’re not quite where you want to be, there’s still time to get there.
Think about it this way. 2013 is like a trip around the block. You're halfway home. If your first half wasn't that great, then maybe it’s time to make a plan, speed up your pace, and make the second half really count.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9
Here's some motivation for you to finish 2013 strong:
The first half of the year wasn’t that great for Roseann Sdoia from Boston. You see, she likes to run, and is a fan of watching the sport, and this year she was waiting at the finish line of The Boston Marathon when a bomb exploded. She lost her leg.
But, now she has the rest of the year to learn how to walk on an artificial limb. Her goal is to keep moving - literally. She even wants to start running again.
Man, now I want to make some goals and finish 2013 strong too.
What is it that you want to accomplish in the second half of 2013?
