I just love lists. I love checking things off, accomplishing tasks and projects. I especially love that feeling when you can visibly see what and how much you did.
I love goals. I love figuring out exactly what I'm aiming for and then trying to achieve it. I love the process of life and adapting too so I'm never too concerned when my goals change or I "fail" to achieve them. Usually it's because something more important came along!
So you can imagine, I LOVE NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS!! I love contemplating the previous year and dreaming about the upcoming one. I love praying and thinking and setting some goals that I think God has in mind for me.
This year is no different.
Except that where I normally have a list, I feel like this year my goals can all be summed up in one concise statement: In 2012 I want to eliminate my burdens so that on December 31, 2012, I can joyfully look forward to 2013 "lighter".
It really breaks down into 1) aggressively eliminate debt, 2) eliminate some of the literal weight I've gained, and 3) eliminate projects that I've let pile up (and refuse new projects). So if I say "no" to you this next year...it will be after I've carefully considered and prayed about it but I'm ready to live FREE! Free to say YES to God, whenever and however he calls!!
What are your goals? Resolutions?
I'm so excited to see where this year takes it, I know God has some great plans!
