2013 Resolutions

Posted in : about life/the Christian faith

Yeah, I don’t know and don’t care what “the rules” are for this type of thing, but some of these resolutions are last year’s too. Looks like I failed some, eh? Some of them I actually *did* accomplish, and some of them are ones at which I *did* fail–and some of them are sorta in-between.

Like I said last year (you can click here to see last year’s: https://ktravisj.com/blog/perfectlyincomplete/?p=1537), it’s better to make it a daily goal to meet goals–both long and short-term goals. While I still believe it is best to better yourself *all* throughout the year rather than just CLAIM to do it one day of the year, I *do* wanna post some things on which I want to work, this next year.

Here are this year’s:

2013 Resolutions

1 ) Get better at resting and “doing nothing” sometimes

2 ) Live more “in the moment” by not always keep looking ahead to incessantly see, handle, meet, prepare for “the next thing”, the “next”, the “next”, the “next”…

3 ) Be more open about my shortcomings (like my inability to do very much home-repair type of things, or mechanical-related things; among other things at which I fail)

4 ) Love, and ALLOW myself to be loved, both

5 ) Don’t take as much BS from people–personally or professionally

6 ) Don’t second-guess myself

7 ) Clean up my language

8 ) Remain true to myself and don’t sell out–personally or professionally

9 ) Remain humble and remember that the Lord God has played a huge part in causing my circumstances and my environment to give me the opportunities to use my free will to get where I am and attain the things I have; it’s been a combination of both Him and His influence, and then also my utilizing my resources well. It is both. It is not only me.

10 ) Call, text, or message a random friend/family member/acquaintance more often, just to honestly see how they are doing
