This year, after much deliberation, I'm just saying NO to New Year's Resolutions. For the past three years my resolutions have never been completed, but instead have been a complete fail. Well this year, no more. This is not to say I don't have things I want to achieve this year, because I most certainly do. I just don't want the added pressure of a daunting list of resolutions - no siree.
So instead of a long list of resolutions, here are the things I actually want to do throughout the year.
This year I want to grow closer to God. I want to pray more, finish reading the Bible cover to cover, and spend more of my time learning and studying the word. I want to participate in blog Bible studies and write in my prayer journal.
This year, instead of focusing on the things I hate about my body, I want to learn to love my body and treat it better. Instead of focusing on simply losing weight I want to learn to workout more and enjoy it. I also need to focus more on upper body toning seeing as my wedding dress fits like a glove and I don't need to lose weight. :)
In 2013, I want to continue my reading challenge and read 50 books throughout the year. I've kept my reading goal for the past 3 years. Hopefully I can keep up the reading habit for 2013, but honestly, I don't see that as a problem!
Lastly, this year I'd like to grow my little side hobby of photography. I've always loved pictures, scrapbooking, and photography. So why not take my little hobbies and make them into a side business? I've already had a few sessions and a couple of weddings this year, but I'd really like to expand in 2013. Who knows what the future holds?
And oh yes...I need to fit planning a wedding in there!
Happy New Year!
