New year, fresh start

Okay, so it’s not quite New Year’s Day, but I’m ready to post my “resolutions.” Except that they aren’t really resolutions as much as things I want to accomplish.

  1. Read (or listen) to the Bible every day. I’d like to read through it in a year, but it’s really about consistency.
  2. To eat less fast food
  3. To drink less soda
  4. To start tying all my bits and pieces of story ideas into the book that’s been forming.
  5. To post more gratitude on this blog. I’m not committing to daily, but at least once a week should be reasonable, right?
  6. To find an exercise that I will enjoy and stick with on a regular basis.

That’s not too ambitious a list, is it? These things are what I want to reach for, I’m just not going to beat myself up if I don’t manage all of it. It’s goals. Not deadlines.

As far as Gratitudes, here’s a list for today.

  1. I am thankful that I have a job that lets me see the sunrise and the sunset. Granted, it’s in the opposite direction of where I’m driving, but it’s still beautiful.
  2. I’m thankful I have a job that I’m valued and useful. It seems like I might be too valued, but that’s okay. They will adjust.
  3. I’m thankful for my husband who knows when I say I need to sleep, just lets me sleep. I might not be able to get 8 hours every night, but I have to have more than 5 and a half.
  4. I’m thankful for farm fresh eggs and deviled eggs. Yummy.

I hope you have a happy and meaningful new year, and may God bless you and yours.
