It’s that time of year again where resolutions are formed and people are striving to be better. I’ll admit it; I normally am not much of a resolutions kind of gal. I think that you can change at any point in the year. However, this year I am all about setting some resolutions. 2015 was a good year with a lot of amazing memories and some challenges too. I’ve definitely grown from it all, and am thankful for my experiences thus far, but am ready for a clean slate!
I was inspired by on one our church services where the pastor talked about resolutions. He talked about how statistics show a number of people set roughly the same goals such as losing weight, having fun, getting healthy, and saving money. Those are all good; don’t get me wrong, but more than half of the people fall off the goal bandwagon after 6 months of setting them, then the following year they set the same ones. Basically, it’s a vicious cycle of goal setting and rarely obtaining the result you intended.
Our Pastor recommended a good resolution would be to give yourself away. Eugene Peterson quotes: “Giving is the style of the universe. Giving is woven into the fabric of existence.” My top priorities this year are to speak with truth, walk with grace, and form deep, long lasting relationships.
I’ve created a few specific categories this year to help me in reaching my goals. Each category focuses on different aspects that make up life and they mean a lot to me.
What are your goals for 2016? I would love to hear them!
