The New Year=The Ultimate Do-Over. Yeah. That's fine for the first day, week, month.....but after that??? Not so much.
That's why I don't make resolutions. Not anymore. New Year's is too much like night time. ANYTHING is possible at night. Tomorrow I will eat right! Tomorrow I will start transferring money into the savings account, and I will freeze my spending!!!, Tomorrow, I won't eat at ALL!!! Tomorrow I will be the perfect (insert a word like: mom, wife, housewife, etc...), Tomorrow I will wake up and exercise for an hour before the kids wake up. TOMORROW....
I am excited about the New Year, but I am not resolving to do anything. My OFFICIAL New Year's resolution is to live in the present. Not worrying about the future, and not stuck in the past. I resolve to live. I want to live for the life that God created me to have. I will dwell on what HE wants me to do NOW.....not tomorrow.
It is His will that I should cast
My care on Him each day;
He also bids me not to cast
My confidence away.
But oh! how foolishly I act
When taken unaware,
I cast away my confidence
And carry all my care! -James Seward
