Another year has come and gone. Time to get out pen and paper and jot down a few ways you can improve your life, make this year better than the last --more successful.
We all have that list of resolutions, whether they are written down or not. Maybe you've shared your list with a loved one, or perhaps you've kept yours hidden this year; either way, we all have goals for 2013 (big and small) that deep down inside we believe that if they are met, our lives will be enriched.
And maybe they will.
While jotting down my own list, I started thinking about that word success. What makes one successful in life? Or more specifically, what makes for a successful year? Is it fitting into those size 4 jeans? Or having more money in your bank account?
In the world's eyes, probably so. But what the world can't see is the condition of your heart, and maybe that and that alone equates success in life.
So my new year's resolutions for 2013 are...
- To spend more time intentionally loving my husband, even if the feelings I harbor for him at certain moments aren't necessarily lovey dovey ;)
- To be more intentional with my friendships
- To pray not just in moments of hardship, but in moments of thanksgiving
- To tithe consistently
On paper, success may look like $$$, but the above are things I've struggled with this past year and want to improve on in 2013. So for me, a successful 2013 looks a lot like my family, friends, and my relationship with Christ. Oh yeah, I also want to work out more and eat more veggies ;)
Happy New Year!
I hope it's a successful one.
