Posts Tagged ‘Resolutions’

I don’t usually do New Year’s resolutions but one year I had done it and then at the end of the year I found the note stuck in my Bible and it was actually cool to see that I had done some of the stuff….even though I hadn’t rememberd writing it down. ¬†ūüôā


So this year I decided to make my list public. ¬†I don’t know how well that will work…but we shall see. ¬† So here goes.

1) ¬†Spent QUALITY time with God….not just 5 minutes at the end of the day. ¬†Good old quality time. ¬†I wanted a laptop so many years ago so I could journal my prayer time (because I can type faster than write) and I think I have only used the laptop for that purpose a month out of the 10 years that I’ve owned a laptop.

2)  Spend less time on the internet and more time with my family.  This will have to be gradual for me, but I think I can do it.

3) ¬†Be less stressed. ¬†This is huge for me. ¬†I am a type of person who gets stressed over the smallest of things. ¬†So my goal is to finish the book I’m reading about managing stress and then put it into action.

4)  Exercise more.  This will help with number 3 and hopefully benefit me in the long run both emotionally and physically.

5) ¬†Spend less and save more. ¬†A hard one as we live on a pretty tight income but I believe we can do it. ¬†Maybe a more appropriate point would be “be wiser with my money.”

6) ¬†Go as far as I can on the adoption stuff so that I’m waiting for people on the other end to step in.

7) ¬†Enjoy my family vacation in Florida. ¬†It may be the only vacation we have for a while….so I plan on enjoying every last second of it.

8) ¬†Complain less. ¬†YIKES……can I do this? ¬†I hope so.

9)  Be less grumpy. (8 & 9 go hand in hand)

10)  Be all that I can be to the people around me.  This includes being less judgemental and more open to giving.

11) ¬†Finish something that I’ve started…..or in better words…finish a goal that I’ve been working on. ¬†I tend to do things only till I get bored of them. ¬†I want to finish something this year. ¬†Accomplish something.

12)  Drink more water and less coffee.  No more than 2 cups a day!

13)  To always have my Kitchen table cleaned off at the end of the day. (This is huge as we always tend to put everything on it)

These are big resolutions. ¬†Pray for me as I try to accomplish these. ¬†I strive to be a better person inside and out…and these are ones that I’ve said in my head for a while….but haven’t actually done a whole lot of. ¬†Hopefully making it public can help with that.

What’s one New Year’s resolution that you made that you really hope to keep.


Blessing: I worked out today. ¬†ūüôā
