I’ve been hearing a lot of people griping about making New Year’s resolutions because it sets them up for failure. I say bring on the challenge! It’s important to have something you are working toward, otherwise, what is the point of living?
I asked my husband on New Year’s Eve what his resolutions would be, and his response was to “love more, laugh more, and follow Jesus.” What a lovely response! We should all strive to love others more; to laugh more and enjoy life; and, no matter what your beliefs are, be more passionate and intentional about living for those beliefs and morals.
My goals get a bit more specific and I will share one of them here. This year I will turn 30. It is my goal to be in the best shape of my life by the time my birthday rolls around in seven months. I’m starting a new weightlifting routine this month and will continue on my endeavors to eat healthy and take care of this body that God has blessed me with.
If you have any goals or resolutions for this year, don’t be worried about failing. Even if you can only walk a mile instead of running a marathon, at least you aren’t sitting on the couch.
