Can you believe it's 2012?
I was reading and article & it referenced 1995 & I thought to myself "Oh, ok, so like 10 years ago." Um, no. Closer to 20. Wild, right?
I love this time of year. I know a lot of people go into a winter funk after the holidays & maybe its because I live in AZ where its sunny & 70 degrees, but I love the fresh, new start a year brings.
One of the wonderful things about a new year & fresh start are the dreams & ideas you have for yourself. Some people call them resolutions, some people call them intentions, some people call them just plain ol' plans & today, I am going to share mine with you.
Be in the Word everyday.
One of the biggest reasons I love reading God's Word is that I am constantly peeling back the layers of lessons He is teaching me. I am always, always able to find refuge & refreshment in Word.
Run 15-20 miles a month
Running makes me happy. Being happy makes me a better wife, mom, & person.
I am doing this in September. I can't wait!
I know this is broad but that's how I want it. I want to be kind to myself - my body & my mind. Eat right & take care of myself. Not stress myself out with unnecessary things. I want to be kind to those around me & extend grace. I want my thoughts, actions, & words to be kind.
I thought this was an awesome portrayal of 2011. Great reminder to me that there is a big ol' world outside my front door.
I am excited for 2012.
