I saw this picture on Facebook where they talked about starting a gym on New Years Day and calling it “Resolutions”.  For the first two months there would be work out equipment  and for the remaining ten it would be a coffee bar or restaurant or something of that nature.  It made me laugh out loud, but truthfully, it should make me ashamed.  You see, I don’t really want to be just another one of the crowd, going along with the lack of commitment to a resolution.

According to Dictionary.com, here are some of the definitions of resolution:

2.the act of resolving or determining upon an action, course of action,method, procedure, etc.

a resolve; a decision or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.

Her resolution to clear her parents’ name allowed her no other focus in life.

the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose:

Okay, so I’ve made many New Year’s Resolutions… and like everyone else, they seem to last about two months or even less depending on what they are and how hard they happen to be.  Losing weight… it’s hard. Going to the gym… I hate it when it’s packed so I wait until a few months in because it’s a mess.

So this year, I’ve decided to stick with things that matter.  All of these are life changing decisions and things I can be resolute in:

renew your mind

renew your mind

new song

Sing a New Song

choose joy

And choose Joy…

Then there’s the pushing from God I received:

Write in My Blog at least two times a week and write one chapter of my book every two weeks.  Doesn’t seem like a lot, but I need to start treating it as my job, my life’s work.

With that being said, I wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year with tons of God’s favor and blessings.
