And…we’re back! After an unintended break from the blogging world, I’m back and rarin’ to go.
I find that the turn of a year is a particularly good time for introspection and self-evaluation, inevitably leading to new resolves to do better. I tend to get carried away with New Year resolutions. If I didn’t temper it, my list would include (but by no means be limited to) the following
- Be more disciplined
- Get up earlier
- Read my Bible more
- Pray more
- Practice the piano more
- Exercise more
- Read more
- Write on my blog more
- Don’t be late to things
- Stop procrastinating
- Keep up with housework
- Stick to a schedule
- Walk the dog more
- Be more prepared for mealtimes
- Be more prepared for teaching Sunday School
- Be a better mommy
- Be a better wife
- Be a better Christian
But…that’s an overwhelming list and, let’s face it, not things that just magically change because I flipped a page on the calendar.
So instead, I’m simplifying. I found some fantastic advice on this blog, which I am adopting for myself.
Imagine who you want your kids to become.
That, and my husband and I both want to use our mornings better, so we’re tackling the other end: bedtime. We’ve planned to start going to bed earlier so we can actually function in the morning (a novel idea, I know…).
That being said, goodnight all!
