After I take my week to get over the sayin'-goodbye-to-Christmas blues... I usually rev up thinking about all that a new year will bring!
This year was no different... as 2011 was fast approaching, I couldn't help but get excited over all the possibilities... what is it about having to buy a new calendar or day planner that leaves a girl feeling so so so optimistic about what will come?
As I've been thinking so much about what I want my resolutions to be... what goals I'll be aiming for... I've been asking around... trying to snatch some good ideas from close friends and sweet family... and you know what!?!? Every stinkin' person (except for my beautiful Moma... she's one classy gal!) I've talked to has declared that they don't "do resolutions"!
What!?!?!?!?! You people are literally... "killin' me Smalls"! Typically my "close ones" state matter-of-factly that they know they won't actually complete the resolutions... or the thought of taking on a laundry list of stuff is ridiculous and unnecessary....
That said... the dreaming, immature, unrealistic, list-loving girl in me... is going to make some resolutions! Whether or not I achieve all on my list... I'll continue to make it... because... it's a challenge... it's accountability in it's only unique little form... and...
It's the perfect time of year to aim big and shoot high...
Because... it's the beginning...
So... without further ado... some of my resolutions (*please note that I said "some"... this list is a work in progress, as am I...)... (*please also note that I realize that my list is long... that I won't accomplish all that is on it... but that this is fun for me... feel free at any point to "Ba-less my little heart'!)
Han's Resolutions for 2011...
1. Make a greater effort to work at living a life that is more balanced... Especially focusing on setting aside significant time to spend with my God and then with the Hubs.
2. Commit to memory... starting with Colossians 3.... this is becoming more and more important to me as I've begun to realize more and more just how much His goodness oozes out of you when it's pressed so firmly upon your heart.
