2012. It's Here.

     2012. It's been here for over a week already. Actually, it's kind of terrifying to think of how Time seems to be going by faster and faster.
     But anyway, the New Year is here. And here is a list of a few of my resolutions (some big, some small):

  • Take more pictures. This is an area I used to be quite good at. My excuse? I got lazy. :/ Which brings us to my NEXT resolution... 
  • STOP being lazy. Not to say that I'm a couch potato...but there are other ways of being lazy than just lying around all day and watching TV and eating chips. Say, procrastinating? Umm...yeah. Moving right along...
  • Reach my goal weight! I have been on this road of exercise and healthier eating for about a year. 25 lbs. down, 15 more to go!
  • Be slower to speak. Generally it's my mouth that gets me in trouble. Whether it's something that's hurtful, something stupid, or just plain ol' unneccessary. "Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." - Proverbs 17:28
  • Stop being so critical. Of myself and others. None of us are perfect; we can only be the best we can be.
  • Get outside more. I spend entirely too much time the I'm doing right now. Ha. 
  • Save $4,000. Yes, it sounds tough. But it can be done. I have before, and I will again. It takes discipline. Lots of it.
  • Develop a better relationship with my family. Most folks I know would look at me and my family and say that we are really close. And we are. But there are still lots of places where I can do better. 
  • Witness to people. Whether it's winning people to Christ or just planting a seed. This is what we, as Christians are called to do. And I am ashamed to say that I haven't done this... In my actions, yes, I have. But with my mouth? No. This MUST change.
  • Grow. Spiritually. Saying that I am lacking in this area of my life would be an understatement. Whether it's reading the Bible, praying, or just being obedient to the Will of God. This is the most important resolution. I must change.
Ok, there's my list. Pretty lengthy, huh? And believe me there are plenty more. Those are just the biggies. So...what are some your Resolutions?


  1. Witness to people would probably be my main resolution. Other than that I haven't made a list.

  2. I know...I've been feeling very convicted about that one.
