Tis the season to be resolute; however, I don’t want to start the New Year with a resolution. I want to begin 2013 with a nap.
It’s that kind of a year.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about this whole resolution business, and I decided I’m not ready to add anything new to my life. No new early rising or mind and body shredding exercises. I just need to stick with the things I’m already doing, but do them better.
Fluttering from one thing to another is a problem for me. I tend to have butterfly syndrome. In fact, I’m in pretty good company. We’re constantly beginning something new, and while I think that’s mostly good, I don’t feel like a “new thing” is where I need to focus my energies.
I need to perfect what I am already doing.
Now here’s the problem. I am not a perfectionist. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why this resolution works for me. I need a push to take things to the next step and be a little bit better version of the person God created me to be.
Here are some areas I know I can do better.
- Having Fun
- Listening for God’s voice
There’s nothing new in this list. It’s the everyday stuff, but it is those little things we do every single day that end up changing our lives. Making great big decisions is sometimes the easy part. The difficulty comes in all the thousands of little decisions and tasks that lead us to our goal.
So in 2013, I am working on the little things, the everyday, because what I do today will determine my tomorrow.
It’s time to step up my game and do Better.
So if you see me mumbling under my breath, I am telling myself that what I do today counts for what I want to do tomorrow.
