A New Year...How ya doing? :-)
A new year, new resolutions, new ideas, new beginnings. However, by February (if not sooner) many people get discouraged and give up.
This is a sad commentary. Here are the top ten resolutions of 2012...
1. Lose Weight
2. Getting Organized
3. Spend Less, Save More
4. Enjoy Life to it's fullest
5. Stay fit and Healthy
6. Learn Something New
7. Quit Smoking
8. Help Others achieve their Dream
9. Fall in Love
10. Spend more time with Family
Sound familiar? So, are resolutions bad? No, it's just that maybe the way we go about them is. The Bible says "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again" - Prov 24:16. I think this is key.
We are going to mess up. Ye,s we are going to eat that sugary snack, say that mean comment, forget to exercise, lose our list and get too busy for family. HOWEVER, the difference is that we need to RISE BACK UP and start all over. Instead of having a new year, have a new day.
Every day is a new chance to start again, to be the best person that God has empowered you to be. So make your list for today...
1. Read 2 chapters of the Bible and Pray
2. Hug my hubby and tell him I'm proud of him
3. Take a jog through the neighborhood
4. Make a healthy dinner
Do as much as you can, (keeping God the priority) and start over tomorrow. Be a good steward of your body, time and money while enjoying your present. :-) - Rejoicing!!!
