I’ve never been much into New Year’s Resolutions. I always came up with the same resolutions each year: eat healthier, exercise, and lose weight. It was always the same.
But, I’ve decided that I’ve had enough with that. This year I want to do something different. This year, I don’t want to just criticize my body. Yes, of course, I could eat better. I should exercise. And I wouldn’t mind losing some weight, but there’s so much more than just the way I look.
This year, I want to work on the inside. This year, I want to love more. I want to love myself more. I want to love my husband more. I want to love my children more. I want to love my family more. I want to love my friends more. I want to love complete strangers more.
I just want to love more.
I want to love like He does. I want people to notice. I want people to question. I want people to wonder. And then I want people to mimic.
Just imagine if people mimicked.
While I hope this will make someone feel good and while I hope that someone will be inspired enough to do the same, it’s more than that. I just hope this resolution will bring us closer to Him and it will be a reminder that no matter how much I love, He loves more. And on the days when it seems like we have nothing, no hope, no love, no strength, well, I hope that we are reminded that all we need is Him and the rest will just fall into place.
And so, I am challenging myself to do one nice thing every single day for someone else, completely out of love. It can be big, it can be small, just one thing, for one person, every day for the entire year.
What about you? What are some of your resolutions?
