You may not know this about me, but I’m not very self disciplined. I’m ashamed to say it. I’m more of a “creative spirit” – “follow your heart” kind of girl. I am motivated by certain things, but I am not self disciplined. I’ve started many an exercise regime, but failed to follow through, because the first time I felt tired at the end of a work day (which is most of the time), I’d throw in the towel. I can’t overcome my feelings to just get out there and do it!
When I pass a dish of chocolate, I seldom tell myself, “No.” I indulge because I feel like it. When I have a task that I particularly hate, I will put it off as long as I can, rather than just “getting it over with.” Sad, but true.
I’ve been inspired by other people posting their resolutions. In the interest of trying to become a better person, I’m going to give New Year’s Resolutions the old college try once again. Here goes:
In 2012, I resolve to:
*Build my life around prayer, instead of building prayer around my busy life
*Be more attentive to my husband
*Play more with my children
*Pray with my children more – teach them to be thankful to God for His many blessings
*Have a place for certain important items – and put those items back where they belong so that I don’t waste so much time hunting for “lost” things
*try to shop more carefully (budget wise)
There you have it! My list for 2012. I could go on and on with things that I need to improve, but I think I better stick with a small list. If I set my hopes too high, I’m sure to disappoint myself:( What are you resolving to do in 2012?
