I have decided this year not to make any resolutions for the new year. Why? Because I feel that it's silly to say one is going to do something and then quit after an X amount of time. Seriously...think about it. How many times have you said you were going to do something, such as quit smoking, only to "fall off the wagon" within a month or so.
This year I'm going to set goals for myself, and hopefully by the year's end I will be happy with what I've accomplished. I only have 3 main goals I want to work on in 2015.
1. Pray more. I firmly believe in prayer, but haven't done as much of it as I should. I am trying to get into the habit of starting my day off with a prayer thanking the Lord for allowing me to wake up to enjoy another day He has created. I also want to try to pray again before I go to sleep thanking Him for the blessings I've had that day, as well as for forgiveness for any mistakes I have made.
2. Read my Bible more. Though I've never read the Bible straight through, I have read various books of the Bible and have underlined my favorite scriptures. I want to read more and look for more scriptures that "talk" to my soul and will help me lead a more Christ-like life.
3. Continue on my weight loss journey. Though I have an ultimate goal I'm working toward, I won't be disappointed if I don't achieve it in 2015; as long as I loose as much as I can to get there I will be happy. I'll get to my ultimate goal one of these days.
Maybe I can get into more crafts this year...I've got a couple of ideas in mind. Will have to see how things play out. :-)
I hope 2015 will be a good year for you. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
