I just don't make them.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

I hope it's ok if I post something that Gin told me. Her pastor told her that instead of making New Year's Resolutions, to work more on 'looking for opportunities' in the new year. I'm going to really try to take this to heart. I'm going to get a little deep here for a minute. Wink But just think of how 'self-serving' most New Years Resolutions are, really? They're usually about 'bettering ourselves', be it emotionally, physically, mentally. Not saying that's a bad thing. But by 'looking for opportunities', and actually taking advantage of those that present themselves, automatically we are bettering ourselves...whether it be through helping others, volunteering our time, being a better friend, strengthening our relationship with God...., all these things ultimately will make us 'healthier' emotionally, physically and spiritually. For me personally, I'm upset with myself that I've gained quite a bit of my weight loss back. I've been pretty 'mad' at myself lately. But what I'm getting is that I'm just too focused on the food, you know? If I start to better myself in all other aspects, mentally emotionally and spiritually, the 'physically' part of it should fall into place. Does that make sense? I just know something has to 'click' with me. I obviously need to transform my way of thinking, and I think it needs to start with getting 'outside myself', helping others and 'giving back'. That's the reason we were put here, isn't it? I mean, how can we be truly fulfilled in any way without that? So that's my New Year's Resolution: to be more 'aware' and not just go through the motions in this life. To look for opportunities and actually seize them. Thumbsup

Ok, end of speil! You can wake up now! :sleep: :haha:

That does make a lot of sense. My pastor's wife and I were talking about this same thing a few months ago . . . sort of. LOL. . . We were discussing the fact that sometimes we're in such a hurry that we don't notice the opportunities that we have to make an impact on someone's life. Even in small ways. And that we really need to be sure to remember that, even if it's inopportune, we need to make the time to seize those moments.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant (and I think what Gin's pastor was getting at), you just put it a lot more concisely than I did! Whistle :haha: Thanks for understanding Savannah...that was a 'rambly' post and I wasn't sure if I would really get my point across. Wink

I was just thinking about Beckie's prayer request too, about the elderly lady that they discovered was living in deplorable conditions? It's like what Gin was saying about that situation, that this may actually be a blessing in disguise, because now people are aware of her situation. Now it's up to the community to either seize the opportunity and help, or turn a blind eye. It all goes back to what you said about taking the time to even notice that those are opportunities. Wink

Krissy, when my nephew, Jeremiah was four, we sat down to eat, and he asked what was for supper. My Dad told him "Cat fish". Jeremiah's eyes grew HUGE, and his jaw dropped, and he refused to eat until we went and got his cat for him. :Hahaha: He wanted to be sure he wasn't about to eat kitty-kitty. :Hahaha: I'd forgotten about that........thank you for bringing it to my mind!

PostSubject: What's your New Year's resolution(s)?   Thu Dec 27, 2012 1:03 am

What's yours?

Mine is to lose maybe 10-15 pounds, better myself as a person and be more helpful around the house, and be more open and outward about my beliefs instead of hiding them. I guess to be a more outgoing and bolder person rather than shy as I have been and to just be myself.
