Ok..so there is a huge crowd of people that don't make New Years Resolutions anymore. The idea is that by making them, you kind of jinx yourself into not doing them. But I think it is good to make goals. It is good to have an idea of where you want to be headed. Without this goal set in mind, you tend to stray. And at the end of the year, you wonder how in the world you ended up where you are.
My goal this year is to have fun. To be insanely goofy, risk taking and carefree for Jesus. To be completely open to his calling on my life and able to be spontaneous and fall more in love with Jesus - so much so that I share him with my college friends, people from work and even random everyday people. I want to live life to the fullest this year by choosing Joy. And I don't want to ever be afraid to look like a fool for Jesus again.
As an over planning perfectionist, I tend to over think and over analyze everything. So that is why one of my goals this year is to "have fun." Not the party animal, crazy, dangerous kind of fun. But the kind of fun that enables me to find humor in any situation, spontaneity in everyday things and joy in the hard times. I used to be a goofy, risk-taking, silly girl and I lost that over the years.
School and life have a way of dragging the "adventure" right outta ya. So this year, I will not let MY stuff become the focus. I will try to see past MY stuff to the bigger purpose that I am put here on Earth for. School, work, friends.....can certainly enhance my life, but will never offer me fulfillment. I want to live out my adventure with God's humongous, joyous plan for my life. And in doing so, I want to be able to affect others to be closer to Jesus.
In this New Year, what is your resolution? Is it something that will help you live out the purpose Jesus has for your life?
