I have really struggled this year with the idea of resolutions.
I know it's important to set goals and constantly be reaching for them.
I feel like I really failed in this area last year.
I think part of it is that I have put so many unrealistic expectations on myself and then I get really discouraged and just don't do anything.
So this year through a lot of prayerful pondering I have decided that I will focus on one word this year...........
I have more specific goals that don't need to be listed here, but basically this word encompasses:
- strengthening my relationship with my Father in Heaven
- strengthening my relationship with my husband and each one of my children
- strengthening my relationships with neighbors and friends
- strengthening my body
- strengthening others through service, and in my calling and visiting teaching
I think because the word strengthen feels like a constant work in progress I won't feel so pressured to be perfect, but to constantly be working towards my goals.
I'll let you know how it's going!
