The act of resolving or determining upon an action or course of action, method, procedure, etc.
I have decided that I need a course of action. I have thought about my New year resolutions for a few weeks now and I am ready to put them into writing, and make them happen.
* Find joy in the journey~ life often throws us curve balls. It doesn't always go as planned. I am resolving to find joy along the way no matter the circumstances. This last year has been a challenge. As I reflect back on the journey I am amazed at the blessings we have been given. I want to be more aware of the blessing and less focused on the challenges. We are so blessed in so many areas of our lives. That is what I am going to choose to focus on.
* Blog more~ I started this blog when we moved to Arizona so our families could see what we were up to. I have been slacking and have not blogged as often as I would like to. I want to remember events and thoughts and feelings that I experience. I am resolving to blog weekly. I know that is a resolution just waiting to be broken...I am going to make it a priority and try hard to make it happen.
*Clean out the closets~ My friend Jenny made this one of her resolutions last year and I am going to steal her idea. I want to get organized and dejunk! It amazes me how quickly stuff creeps in and takes over the closets and other areas of the house. I don't need all of this junk...I am going to tackle the closets one at a time and get organized!!
*Scrapbook~ I am really good about collecting paper and scrapbook supplies, I could sit down and scrapbook for days on end and not need to buy a single thing. I really enjoy scrapbooking, I love being creative. When I started working a few years ago I decided I didn't have time to scrapbook and I have gotten really far behind. I want to make time this year. I want to work on them on a regular basis. I have started by cleaning and organizing my scrapbook cupboard. It looks so good. I need to organize the pictures next and get all of the pictures printed that I have taken the last few years. I am going to tackle this project a little at a time. I feel overwhelmed just thinking about it, and know that is the reason it has not been a priority. I am resolving to make it a priority this year.
*Scriptures, Prayers, Temple~ You know the "sunday school answers" I resolve to make these a priority. I know that when we put these things first, we have time for all of the other things.
*Laugh more~ Laughter is the best medicine!
*Learn to muscle test~ I have wanted to learn how to do this for a long time. I am not sure why I have not had the confidence, but I am determined to learn and become good at it. I have been reading the book "The emotion code". This book talks about releasing trapped emotions and negative energy. Jim likes to call it voodoo medicine. Over the years I have seen some shifts in my health and mental well being by using energy medicine. I am excited to learn to muscle test and be able to release some of the "baggage" on my own.
I know there are a lot of other things I could/should be working on this year. I am going to start here and see how it goes.
Wish me luck!
