Well we finished another year. 2013 is now gone, and 2014 is now here! Many people make the decision to start fresh in different areas of their lives or create a “New Year’s Resolution”. If you are like me, you aren’t very good at keeping those resolutions. 😉 I do, however, believe that we should try to give ourselves some sort of goals to obtain, as we should always be striving to improve in all areas of our lives. I just don’t agree with beating myself up with pass or fail resolutions that will ultimately cause me to feel like a failure. Here are some things that I would love to improve on in my own life…
-Read the Bible more. (I would love to make this one: Read the Bible everyday, but I will be happy with myself if I just read from the great book more than the previous year. Eventually I will succeed in daily reading!)
-Spend more quality time with my spouse, Steve.
-Work harder at bonding with my stepdaughter, Lilly.
-Be more patient with people…my family, friends, co-workers & strangers.
-Work harder on being on time or early for everything.
Of course, it wouldn’t seem right if I left out the #1 used area of improvement…
What do you think? I think they seem doable to me! I now have 364 days left to improve in the above areas. In what areas are you needing some improvement? Or do you prefer the cut throat approach of a strict Resolution?
