MY THOUGHTS THURSDAY: New Year’s Resolutions

Hey Everybody! Happy New Year’s Eve!

I don’t really have any big pet peeves or things that annoy me. But if I did, it would literally probably be New Years resolutions– depending on what they are.

There’s nothing more triggering to me than “new year new me,” people fanatic about new workouts and “eating healthy” and all that stuff. But if you’ve decided that Januray 1st is genuinely a good time for you to work on some things that are actually for you and going to be good for you, then that’s fantastic.

Mid there were some things I’d want to work on, by the grace of the Lord, they would be as follows:

Cutting out Splenda. I consume so much Splenda, it freaks me out. It also makes me bloated and just makes my stomach hurt. It’s doing my body and mental health no good.

Texting. Julia at Lord Still Loves Me summed up my thoughts about texting PERFECTLY in her Nee Years post:

“I need to work on my texting game. While I wish this was not the main form of communication nowadays, I have to be cognoscente of the fact that it is. It’s how people stay in touch with one another in the midst of our busy schedules, and if I don’t want to lose out on relationships, I need to be better at responding to text messages. It’s all about finding the balance between staying present with the people around me, and tending to the friendships that are not close in proximity.”

Yes, gal, me too.

Devotions/Bible Readings. Time spent in the Word is something I have always said is the most important thing a human can do. But do I follow along with that? Do I spend the time with God that I should? I certainly am more and more, but never, ever enough. Ever.

Thats my big list for ya! And less food thoughts, less emphasis on food and exercise in my life, but of course that is an ongoing process.

So if you are recovering from an eating disorder admins hear those “new year new me” phrases and think they apply to you, remember what YOU are focusing on this new year, and every day. This morning was just as fresh a start as this second is, and just as fresh as January 1st.

Gods Blessings today and always!

Welcome! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to own a blog, and I created this one to inspire others and help myself. I am a passionate twenty something-year old woman with a love of cooking, tap dancing, and meeting new people-- and of course, primarily an intention to die to my human self and seek God with my whole being. I will eat anything with peanut butter and love spontaneity. I aim to live life in submission to what Christ has for me. I'm currently studying Christian Theology and English at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada.
