I have to follow up Tuesday’s post with a bit of a disclaimer. I make goals all the time, I just start working on them when I think of them, not on a specific day. Today I thought I would share with you what I have been working on recently and in the past year. These are things I plan to continue doing as they have created so much happiness in my life.
I will stop needing affirmation to feel like I am doing things right. After all, what is the right way? Besides the laws of the Bible governing our morality, there are so many ways to do basic things. My way is just as fine as anyone else’s. I will have the confidence in my decisions.
I will continue to do epic shit. Excuse the language for one second and consider that sentence. What does it mean for me to do epic stuff in 2016? Doing epic shit means getting out of my comfort zone. It means getting tough and doing the hard things. It means running outside in the cold. It means trying new things with others even when I am happy to be by myself. It means believing in my abilities and seeing where they lead me. It means getting evaluated and working on areas that I can improve. I will do epic shit.
I will acknowledge that all my emotions are valid and come from within my soul. Just because that is true does not give me license to act on them inappropriately.
I will be present in the moment as much as I can. There is so much more life to be lived in each minute of the day. I do not want to have too many days in a row where I ask myself what happened.
I will stop saying “I should do this” or “I’ve always wanted to…” I will just do it or not do it. The end.
I will get closer to my roommate even though we have completely different schedules and lives. I enjoy her company so much and think we can make more time for each other.
I will become even better friends with my sister. I have worked on this so much this past year and it only made my life better. We can only improve on our relationship.
I will continue to read my Bible and live a Godly life. I will look for other ways to live for Christ and let my actions lead others toward Him.
What is on your list of Wills?
