Broken Resolutions!

I am always amazed that the year is gone. When I hear New Year I think resolution time! So I tossed this resolutions thing out of the window so many years ago and I don’t regret it a bit. Less stress, less to do, and more room wiggle. Especially with my two sweet, adorable but busy kids, I can’t seem to stick to simple things anymore. Like making them eat their fruits and vegetables! Oh and when the unpredictable crappy weather sucks my motivation? You know I’m all for simple realistic goals and progress. Furthermore January’s just not a “real” enough reason for me to start doing stuff different. Also I hate dragging my unfinished business to the New Year… but I found an article by Michael Hyatt (michaelhyatt.com) on strategies you may need to employ to making your resolution stick for those of you who are organized, motivated enough to make resolution.

1. Keep them few in number

2. Make them “smart.” (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time bound)

3. Write them down.

4. Go public

So one of my goals (for the 4th year) is to only spend the time “free time” allotted to me in a positive way and  to regard disruptions or anger or needy people seeking attention as part of God’s design on my day. I can’t say I’ve accomplished it yet in the past years, but I’m consciously trying. This is the only life I have, and I want to live it fully and with passion, building into the relationships I have and pouring myself into the work I have to do….. And that’s the beauty of it all is that God’s Grace covers me when I slip-up.

So go public, share your resolution…
