New Year's Resolutions

Boy, oh boy it's been a while since my last post, hasn't it! If there really are still any readers out there, I express my sincerest apologies. I loved Christmas, although it was busy and crazy as always. I hope yours was also filled with joy, food, family, rest, and relaxation.

Because it is a new year, I've come up with several things that I'd like to either change or begin in 2008. It's such a good feeling to start fresh and have the ability to feel a sense of accomplishment as our calendar rolls over again. Here goes...

  1. Exercise 3 days per week, every week
  2. Read the whole Bible
  3. Be more decisive
  4. Train and run a half marathon and a full marathon before the summer
  5. Have 30 minutes of queit time and prayer time each day
  6. Journal more
  7. Eat out only when necessary
  8. Go through my cell phone and call the people I haven't talked to in over a year
  9. Limit my text messaging
  10. Love more
  11. Visit another foreign country...maybe a place in Africa
  12. Learn Spanish
  13. Stay committed to my campus minsity and lifegroup
  14. Walk to campus, never drive
  15. Be a positive influence on my roommates
  16. Maintain a pure heart
  17. Use my soccer shoes for the first time in the U.S.
  18. Be joyful about every part of life, even the hard times
  19. Kick my caffeine addiction so I can enjoy a cup of coffee
  20. Hang out with kids without feeling like I need to for work
  21. Eliminate negative vocabulary
  22. Worry less, pray more
  23. Study for my classes even when it seems pointless
  24. Make my faith a reality, not just sticking with words and big talk
  25. Be real...with myself and with others

I'm really going to try and make these work this year. Sometimes I say I want to do things and never get around to it. If you know me and have any to add- bring 'em on! Peace
