I have not been blogging much lately and it makes me kind of sad because it has been one of my most favorite things to do. I just have felt the stress of the holidays more than I would have liked. I wish I had taken more time to enjoy my family these past few weeks instead of worrying if everyone was happy enough and if I could do more to make people happy. That sounds selfish, but it is the truth. I could elaborate on the stresses I have felt, but that's just another personal well of "woe is me" and you readers don't come here for that.
However, because of these feelings, I can't help but tell you that yes, I have some resolutions. I have never cared to much to make any, always thought of it as setting yourself up for something. But this year I feel like I could stand to make some changes.
The first resolution stems from my the stress of the holidays. I want to make this year more joyful and less stressful. I know I can't control the factors of life that cause me stress, but I can control how I react. I want to be joyful in all situations. I really do. I hope the Lord can help to see me through this one.
I want to run more. Mr Broome got me the best runner's companion, a Garmon 305, and I haven't had time to run but once since I got it. Its a GPS watch that tells me how far I've run, my time, heart rate, and calories burned. Super neat and very motivating. I want to set another racing goal, but I have to find the time to train.
I know this is generic, but I want to eat healthier. For a good year there I was making the healthiest food decisions, then the holidays came and lets just say I lost all will power.
I want to do the things I love. I think the Lord has given me talents and things that I enjoy. I want to capitalize on these things.
And there is my list. I am sure I could add on, but those were the first few things on my mind.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years.
