Every New Year I sing the words from Rent in my head....
How do you measure- measure a year?
In Daylights - In Sunsets - In Midnights - In Cups Of Coffee- In Inches - In Miles- In Laughter - In Strife
We seem to not think about the year we just lived until it's over. In 2011, I got married and our family grew by one dog. It was a fantastic year. Was it the best yet? I don't know. I don't like when people say, "It was the best year of my life!" How do you know that? You can't know that until your life is over. That's the blessing with a new year, it's a clean slate to see what God has in store for you. It could be a bad year to show you that good years are ahead and to not take the good years in the past for granted. 2009 was by bad year, and it was devestatingly bad, heartbreakingly sad, and unfortuntately not forgettable. That's why God give us the next year, start fresh and the opportunity to love more, give more, and learn from the year behind. We keep on the circle of learning until we are at our end.
I've decided not to have a yearly resolution, because face it, who makes it past February with those. I've decided that I will have 52 weekly resolutions. Each week a new feat.
Week 1- Work out 5 days
Week 2- No soda
Week 3-52- haven't decided yet. I'll just see what needs to be resolved in my life week to week.
I believe this is going to be more attainable, at least I hope so.
I hope everyone lives 2012 to the best of there ability...you only get one '12- MAKE IT COUNT!
