Wednesday, December 30


i only recently began to make new year's resolutions,
but it is something that i have really come to enjoy.
i do well when i have a goal to work towards,
so perhaps this will help me accomplish a few things
that have been on my wish list for a while.

here are my resolutions for 2010:

1. talk to my far away friends more
{even just ten minute phone calls.
i know we are all so busy, but i miss each one of you so much}

2. run 365 miles over the course of the year
{this averages to about 7 miles per week. it will be difficult at first, but i welcome the challenge.}

3. complete a half-marathon or a sprint triathlon

4. make a daily scrapbook of sorts in my planner
{i read about the idea here and loved it.}

5. experiment more in the kitchen & try new recipes

6. spend more time in prayer and reflection of my faith
i get so caught up in the worry and stress of the days, that i forget it is all out of my hands. i often think negative things about other people when they wrong me, about school when it gets really tough, about work when it is frustrating. before i justified this by the fact that i only thought these things, but...

the word of God is living and active. sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. ~ hebrews 4:12-13

so here's to being more positive, spending less time worrying and more time blessing, reading and remembering scripture, having a heart of thankfulness, and living a life of faith.

i wish you all a new year filled with everything you desire.
thanks for reading and commenting on this little blog;
it really makes me happy.
