A resolution is the intent to do something. We all intend on doing something. That is point of being alive and well on earth isn’t it? I feel like the phrase “New Years Resolution” has a negative connotation about it. I mean considering the most common resolutions are to lose weight among other petty things. Shouldn’t you want to be healthy all year long? Right…
I have decided sure, I would like to start the 2014 on a better note, but by creating a list of hopes, goals, and dreams. Not Resolutions. As many have noticed, I have found a religious side of myself. Say what you will, but it is not going to the change the fact that I changed. I guess when you have no hope left, you do whatever you can to find it. And I, found much more than hope. I found faith too.
My goals this year are to finish my certificate program and find a better paying job. I want to pay off some debts and hopefully go get myself a reliable car. I want to save enough money to get married this summer, and I would like to build a closer relationship with God.
I hope this year brings people more blessings than burdens. I hope this year brings people more laughter than tears. I hope this year brings inspiration and happiness. I hope that this year maybe Michael and I can start our own family. I hope that this year there is less hate and crime in the world. I hope that people will realize their worth and appreciate everything they have.
Sure people have dreams. Some are easily attained while others go unnoticed or are not in the least bit realistic. My dreams however, can be attained– eventually. My dream is to publish a book and start my own family. I can try as much as I would like through dedication and motivation but when push comes to shove, God is in control.
Happy New Years.
