Well, I am slowly getting my head round to the fact that it's a new year, and somewhere inside I feel great excitement for what it holds! At his time of year, well, up until the 3rd of January at least, it's all talk about 'New Year's resolutions', and I always feel a little caught out when someone enquires about the goals I have set myself up for. Note: 'set myself up for...'. I do feel that I set myself up for a fall from grace right from the outset, so for the last couple of years I have just not bothered with the idea. Well, it's all about to change...
My first resolution is 'to leave the defeatest attitude at the back door of 2010!' Yes, I am reminded that 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.' So, I shall bury my head in the sand no more, I shall look up and know that whatever I try to achieve, I shall do through His strength, and not my own. For now, that is where I am at. I have also decided not to try and swallow a whole loaf of bread all at once. That's figuratively speaking of course! Whatever task is at hand, I shall approach it one bite at a time. I think that this is where I sometimes went wrong in the past, being overwhelmed by everything that needs doing so much so, that I end up flapping around like a chicken on a diet of e-numbers, and in the process I got nothing done! So, I shall inhale, exhale, and get started, one job at a time.
On a creative note: I intend to make more time for making! Last year I made these:
Oh, and lastly, I might decide to get up a tad earlier in the mornings....early bird catches the worm and all that! Have a super lovely day wherever you are. Live, love and create!
