Another Year Beginning

winter cows 1It’s a new year, a new beginning, a new date to remember to write. I used to scoff a bit at New Year’s resolutions, but the past few years I have made a few of my own. Some have stuck, and some haven’t. But I decided it’s fun! And it does usually get me a lot closer to my goals than I would otherwise. 😉

The year is no different – I resolved to:
get in a couple days of exercise each week,
to work through some Bible teaching, ( HERE  )
take a month off of Facebook,
and write daily.

snowOf course, there will be days so full that I miss my exercise or daily writing, but overall, I believe it is a goal I can reach. The bible teaching is the number one thing I want to keep up with. There are enough short podcasts (all transcripts available as well) to give me 15-30 minutes of listening or reading per day. I’m already enjoying this!

Writing… you know, it’s one of those things that I feel almost driven to do, and yet it is the first thing that gets scratched off my list when life gets busy. I hate that! I would rather give up social media or tv shows or something rather than keep on this way. So that is definitely a priority as well.

A good friend of mine recommended this book, so I have it in my cart at Amazon, ready to buy once we get paid. I am excited to read it!

So what are you resolving for 2016?

    I have found those same Bible Studies to be exactly right for this time in my life too! One per day in this new year, that is my goal :) On another note, I was quite intrigued with those snow photos. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the beauty of snow in the shape of ocean waves! Wind does create beauty, though I wish (here in Ohio) that it would calm down at times! Happy New Year!

    The book about writing that I loved the best, is called Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. I am sure you could get it at the library; if not on the shelf, than through interlibrary loan. She has written a bunch of books and I like them all, even though her philosophy is a little different from mine. I gave my copy away, so can’t loan it to you.
