It's named. 2011. The year of "I will".
I will do what I know needs to be done, in a timely fashion with a cheerful heart.
I will stop and listen.
I will be present in the now and learn to experience what is happening instead of living in the past or future.
I will be more patient. More kind. More quiet spirited.
*I* will be the one to clean up the mess, even though I didn't make it. *I* will help out. *I* will.
I will love that person that is hard to love, even when I'm tired or busy.
I will be diligent in choosing a healthy lifestyle even when I don't feel like it.
Because I'm loved. Because I want to model this to my children. Because I want to be this for my spouse, and parents, and friends.
It's not a resolution. It's a changing of the heart. And a choice. And it's only by Grace.
much love to you for this new year, friends....
