I love the idea of a fresh restart every January 1st and in the spirit of this season, here are my resolutions for 2013.
I will stop making resolutions to do things that I have no real intention of doing. Bang, right of the box with this one!
I will work to love my family more this year than the year before. I want to set a standard in my home that seems unattainable each year and my prayer is that I find new and creative ways to demonstrate my love for Starr, Ryan, Dylan and Lauryn.
I will let my grey hairs take over. The issue with looking a decade younger will become less and less noticeable with each year I age, because the amount of grey hairs are beginning to even the score. I embrace the wisdom that comes with these grey hairs. There is wisdom coming along, right?
I will embrace the responsibility around me that begs for my attention.
I will teach my kids to do more chores around the house. I have realized that I only have my oldest for another 8 years in the house, and I need to get all the housework out of him while I still can.
I will sleep less and read more.
I will become more cool. I’m into my north 30’s and I know that any day now I’ll suddenly be cool, right? Why not this year?
I will spend more time with my kids individually. In fact, if you see me out-of-town in the future; you may get the chance to meet one of my sons. I’m bringing kids with me when I have to leave home this year.
I will take more time to dream about what God could use me to accomplish for His glory.
I will help my kids learn the history of our family, so that they can continue to tell the story long after I’m not with them.
