i used to make new years resolutions...then i never stuck to them. and so i stopped making them. i still love the way the new year comes around and it feels like a fresh start. but you know what?...every day and every moment is an opportunity for a fresh start.
over the past few months these things have been on my heart. i've already made steps toward several of them, but i thought i'd take the opportunity today to share them with you.
it all began with the song, "i need your glory" and the lyrics that say "less of me and more of you is what i need". that spoke so to my heart, especially the idea of more and less. so the other day i sat down and made this list of more and less for the things that have been on my heart.
more Jesus / less me
more water / less soda
more movement / less lazy
more reading / less tv/youtube
more contentment / less spending
more fruits & veggies / less carbs
more crafting / less comparrison
more correspondence / less forgetful
more trusting God / less self-doubt
more praising / less disengaged
more pampering / less busy
more friendly / less introverted
more modest / less tainted
more learning / less dying
more natural / less processed
more present / less distracted
more giving / less selfish
sometimes it's easier in my mind to say i'd rather have more of one thing and less of another than to simply list things i'd like to change. for every bad habit, i need to replace it with a good habit. by focusing on the good habit it helps me keep it all in a positive perspective.
