If you don't 100% buy into the whole "new year, new you" thing then you are missing out! I'm all about giving myself a fresh start come January 1st. I can't believe all that happened in 2015 nor can I wait for all that 2016 has in store.
I love reading the creation story because it is such a perfect and simple example of setting and accomplishing goals. Moses 3:5 says "For I, the Lord God, created all things, of which I have spoken, spiritually, before they were naturally upon the face of the earth." It's crazy to think that this very earth was once essentially just a goal. It makes me think that I must have made personal goals before coming to this earth. Simply because I'm a 10 on the sentimental scale, I like to think my Heavenly Parents sat down with me to review my goals before I left their presence. I'm sure they had some killer advice. While I can't remember the specifics of what they taught me, I know main idea and I know where I can go for reminders.
Ultimately, the main goal, for all of us, is returning to our Heavenly Father with a whole lifetime of experiences and lessons to share with him.
I go to the temple when I need those reminders. Acting on the things that I have learned from the Spirit while in the temple is the best way I've found to move towards accomplishing those early and inspired goals.
As you start this fresh new year, remember that those reminders are available all year round. And if you need a little extra motivation, a beautiful new temple dress sure wouldn't hurt.
