1st Day of a New Year …

Soooo ..

I LOVE life  .. here … now …

And in all honesty – some days more than others.

But ….

I’m not really into New Year’s Resolutions …

I’m more suited to ‘daily resolutions‘   🙂

Like the momentary ones …
The ‘oh … I shouldn’t have said that .. I won’t EVER say it again’ type …

Or ‘why DO I ALWAYS DO THAT .. I won’t do it again’ type of resolutions .. The resolutions that I wholeheartedly mean but inevitably stuff up repeatedly. Even with the very best of intentions !

Why is it that we have this built in desire to do better. .. To be better .. to love more honestly .. ? To be different today than who we were yesterday or than who we are today ?

I’m pretty darn sure that this is a God given desire .. deep rooted in each one of us .. Our desire is – that we don’t want to tread water and stay the same .. We want to be an improved version of us …

Life throws at us – sadness and loss – which cause us to rethink a lot of what is important in our day to day living . .

I don’t want to just exist . .

I want to make a difference in the lives of those that God has placed around me ..

Family, friends, workmates, the customers I serve, anyone I interact with in the course of my day.
Yesterday, in a very busy and pressured day that wasn’t easy. .
I struggled and fumbled to honour God in what were at times very frustrating and difficult situations. I know that I didn’t get it right.

Still … I’m not giving up .. I will keep plugging away at it today…

I will try not to waste too much of my day on Social Media ..

I plan to think before I speak ..

Take some time to read my Bible ..

Soak up some sunshine ..

Not expect perfection from myself or anyone else ..

Be thankful ..

Treasure many precious memories from the year just past ..

Thank you to my family and friends who love, support and encourage me.
