Ever find yourself searching for a "do over" button or a "begin again" button? As one who is forever on the search for the perfect "do over" button I'm especially fond of January! January represents newness, starting over, a fresh start! I love it! It excites me...I love to plan all the new things that I want to get started on! I love the saying, " Out with the old and on with the new"! That spells January to me! Trouble is, I fail shortly after beginning all these great new things. Failure is very disheartening to me. I'm sure I'm not alone in this. So the other day I proudly announced that I haven't failed at my no resolutions making year! My dear friend suggested that we have a goal each month and keep each other accountable for it! I love this! I think I can really succeed at this! I'm going to begin on the small scale and work my way up. I have a great many things that I want to accompolish around our home and I'm excited that I don't have a long resolution list! I'm simply going to make a list of things that I want to accopolish this year and choose one a month! Now, of course there are things in my day to day life that I want to begin implementing and those I'm going to start slowly too. I'm not going to rush into it with several things to start doing differently. I will just get frustrated and quit all together! So there you have it! The newness of this year has me excited and I'm going to begin with purging my 10 yr old's room! ( Shivers in fear)! Have a beautiful day in the Lord!
Just a helpful tidbit: it takes 21 days of doing something over and over to form a habit. I'm thinking I'll start with Bible reading quiet time!
