Ring in the New

searchSometimes I loathe the idea of ringing in the New Year because of the focus on self-improvement resolutions. It means I have to think about my life–what is good, what is bad, and what do I want to accomplish. It is so much easier to just accept the status quo. Nevertheless, this year I am going to try something new. And I am inviting you to join me in the challenge.

It is pretty easy to keep a resolution for a week—although I must admit that I have been known to break a resolution in the first few hours. My research said the reason most people do not keep their resolutions is because they try to do too much too fast. I am guilty. I generally have four or five resolutions. No one can make that many lifestyle changes at once. I need a different approach.

This year I am going to make a resolution for a day–not for a whole year or forever. Each day I will make a new resolution that must only be kept for one day.

THE CHALLENGE: I invite you to join me in keeping a new resolution each day of January. You only have to keep it for one day. Don’t worry. All of the resolutions will be legitimate personal improvement ideas.

This is how it works. I will post a new ONE-DAY RESOLUTION on my website by six each morning. That evening I will report how I did in the comment section on the blog. You are invited to comment on how the resolution worked for you.

    Socrates said: An unexamined life is a life not worth living. I have found it very beneficial & rewarding to look back on the passing year, note the accomplishments, changes etc in my life & pray about how God would have me focus in the coming year. Of course, I write them down………..so I can’t procrastinate. I am amazed each year what I’ve accomplished & where The Lord has helped & led me. I hate drifting! This life passes by so quickly & someday I will give account for how I have used this precious time. If you don’t have a target how will you ever meet your goal! I realize God has put us together differently. If you don’t like resolutions, that’s fine. Personally I like my ducks in a row!

      You are an amazing woman and an inspiration to me. You are so right that life passes by quickly, and we must have a target or we will whittle our life away into a pile of splinters. It is much better to carve a beautiful life serving our Lord.
