I’m usually not the type of person to write out my goals or resolutions and post them on the blog at the beginning of the year.
It just seems like a more formal way of actually having to ‘do’ those things that I typed out.
Does anybody remember my blog post about reading the bible in a year?
Probably not because I never mentioned it again. I like to avoid all failures in my life.
Which is why I never talk about my piano recital in the 7th grade.
Disaster, pure disaster.
Anyways, I made it all the way to March in the One Year Bible.
Then spring break happened.
Well I just went skiing, that sentence made it sound like I was on some drunken beach unable to read my one year bible due to wild nights. That’s not the case, but my ski trip messed up my routine, and when my routine gets messed up I have trouble going back to normal.
However I do get all sentimental at the beginning of the year about a fresh start, a new beginning, blah blah blah, and I start to mentally make notes in my head of things I would like to do.
Once again, if they are just in my mind then it’s not such a big fat FAIL when I don’t do them.
But I decided to put my big-girl-pants on and type some out.
Here are a couple of my resolutions/goals/what have you:
1. Start having a more consistent “devotional time” with God.
I have never been good at this, and it is something I desire to do, but yet don’t. I always try and find somebody to blame (the church, my husband, my dog I had when I was 8) but alas I only have myself to blame.
2. Become more health conscious.
This does not, I repeat DOES NOT mean I’m quitting diet coke. That would just be cruel. However I would like to cut back on it and drink some more water, you know that clear stuff that comes out of a faucet. I seem to only think it’s useful for showering, and I don’t drink enough in there to last me for the day.
3. Become a more supportive wife.
Somebody should have told me before I got married that I wasn’t just marrying my spouse but I was marrying his dreams also. Wait, they did. Well somebody should have told me that my husband loves all things music and his dreams revolve around music. Wait, he did. This year I want to work towards becoming a better Proverbs 31:30 woman and supporting my husband in his dreams. That means going to his music shows EVEN IF it is the same night as American Idol (and my precious Ryan). Marriage is a tricky thing, especially when you throw a TV in the mix. That can cause all sort of problems.
4. Continue with my Couch to 5K and run a 5K.
Notice how I didn’t say run a half marathon? I’m just not brave enough to type that out yet. But it is something I would like to start working towards
5. Give it to God
This could apply to many things and will just be my motto for 2010
