Have a Good One!

29 Dec


A good what? A good day? A good night? A good meal? A good beer? A good year?

All are certainly possibilities.

A good whatever you choose to make of it.

I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions. They put too much pressure on one to achieve the impossible. If I haven’t already achieved whatever it is that I’m telling myself I’m now going to suddenly achieve just because the calendar has passed some artificial mark, what makes me think I’m now going to achieve it? I’m just not. So yet again, I’ve set myself up for failure.

Instead of resolutions, I believe in staying resolute in the things that are important to me.

To stay resolute means to stay determined, purposeful, and bold. It means I will not be indecisive, timid, or uncertain.

This does not mean I won’t have moments of discomfort, weakness, or stubbornness.

It does mean I will keep the things that are important to me foremost in mind. My faith, family, friends, health, ability to earn a living and pay my debts. Laughter. My puppies. Social justice. More laughter.

It’s easy to get caught up in the “everything else” that life throws at us.

What are the things we can control? What are the things we are making ourselves sick over because we cannot control them? Who are the people who can help us make changes in the aspects of our lives we don’t like? Who do we know who can help us connect with those people? Who are the helpers?

What are your priorities? What is the Holy calling you to do? What is stopping you from doing it?

What are you resolute about?

Have a good one!
