Resolutions

2007 was an amazing year. As it drew to a close, I began to reflect on it and what my resolutions were at the beginning of 2007. One of them, I am happy to say, I actually feel like I made some progress on. The others, well, I feel like I may have failed miserably. But, with a new year, we have new resolutions, or new takes on old ones. So, without further ado, my resolutions for 2008:



1. Read the Bible everyday, or at least read the entire Bible in one year. (I bought the One Year Bible last year, but unfortunately failed to do anything with it. I am determined this year. And, I highly recommend it, based on my readings for the last 9 days. I really love that it mixes the Old and New Testament and includes a little Psalms and Proverbs each day. The only thing I would like a little more of is Proverbs - 3 or 4 verses a day just isn't enough!)



2. Eat healthier and exercise more. (This one is most certainly a repeat. I have trouble with this one every year. So, I've tried to set what I think may be some manageable goals.)



3. Write in my journal everyday. (My grandfather and great-grandfather were great journal/diary writers. It's amazing to read about their day-to-day activities. I've always "kinda" kept a journal, but not been good to write every day. This year I resolve to write every day.)



4. Communicate better. (This one is kinda hard to explain...).


These are just a couple, a good start perhaps. Somehow, writing them down makes me more confident. Here's hoping to a great 2008.

Thanks for sharing your resolutions, and I can't wait to hear of your progress in these areas. Resolve, resolve, resolve... and I'll try to do the same.

Those all sound like very realistic and completely obtainable goals! I hope the Lord blesses you in your efforts. It's funny how our generation (plus or minus a few years) seem to struggle with the same things.. (daily Bible reading, eating healthy, HOUSE CLEANING!) I wonder where the breakdown came in?
Ayways, keep us posted on your progress!
