I think that’s the key. Doable. Resolutions should be doable. They should also be something I’m actually interested in accomplishing. That’s where I’ve messed up in the past.
So, this year, I’m excited. I’ve narrowed it down to 4 things. Things I really want. Things I really believe I can accomplish.
- Read 12 books I have never read before.Sure, I’m an English major. You’d be shocked by the lack of reading in my life, though. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is sit down and stretch my mind more by reading. This year, instead of spending such an exorbitant amount of time on social media, I’m turning to healthier outlets. My question is, what books should be on this reading list? Comment and let me know!
P.S. I’m also starting a Book Journal. I have quite a few ideas for my own. If you’re interested – Check out this awesome post: https://pageflutter.com/reading-journal/
- Fast once per week.If there is one spiritual discipline I struggle with, it would be fasting. Disciplining myself to think of the eternal more than the earthly. Focusing on what really matters. Giving up something. Denying myself. Fasting a meal, social media, or spending. I need to reimplement this in my life, and I think once a week is a good (but doable) start.
- Blog every 10-14 days.Keep up with my writing. Work towards more followers. I’m praying that my blog becomes even more of a ministry and touches lives.
- Exercise a minimum of 10 minutes a day, 3 days per week.It doesn’t sound like much, I know. But, it’s a start. To be frankly honest, some weeks I don’t do any exercise, especially in the winter months. My hub is super logical, and he suggested this goal. I’m super pumped, because it doesn’t even overwhelm me. By the end of 2019, I hope to be blowing this goal out of the water!
So, friend, what about you? Any resolutions for 2019? I’d love for you to comment & let me know! <<Don’t forget – make them doable… and something you really want to accomplish!>>
Happy New Year to all of you! Thanks for following along on my blogging journey!
