I made a promise a few years ago not to make resolutions anymore because they just put too much pressure on me and I never seemed to keep them anyway. I do want to keep a few things in mind though in this new year:
- God is in control, and the more I remember that and allow Him to do the leading and me to do the surrendering I think things will go a lot more smoothly in my life.
- My children are growing up and I have to let them stand (or fall) on their own, I can't keep trying to help them when they don't want or need my help anymore. I have to trust that I gave them a good start, and God will watch over them from here.
- Life is too short to spend all of my time obsessing about work and school. I am going to take some time this year to do a few things that I enjoy, like learn to play the piano and take walks and plant flowers in the spring and swim in the pool this summer.
I hope you all have a great 2006.
