The key is, don't think of whatever your doing as a new year resolution. Think of it as a habit you are forming. I usually hate commitment, but if you think of it as a habit--like brushing your teeth--it's not so bad after all.
My habits I want to start:
- Make space for my sewing machine...somewhere.
- Learn more on the piano.
- Keep my room clean and work on making it better.
- Write in my journal more.
- Start, and work on My Faith Notebook journal.
What are yours goals?
Don't think of them as resolutions that are going to fail, but as a habit.
So don't be afraid of losing your goal halfway through January. Make it a habit or commitment, don't just say, "Oh! There goes that new years resolution! Uh oh! To bad, not trying that again," because honestly--us humans--we are lazy. Now maybe not everybody in this area, but everyone has something they don't want to do.
We won't get up and do something about it!
I heard on KLOVE radio that it takes only 30 days to form a habit.
So let's do it! Let's do something for a change.
This is a bible verse that might help you with this time of making habits:
