That being said, I know there are some areas that I need to really work on. It's not because it's January, but because things need to change.
The first is how critical I can be. It saps the joy out of life. Derek has gently pointed it out to me on a couple of times...and so it's important for me to work on this. It's shameful that I am a follower of Jesus, and yet can be sour at times.
Another matter is in friendships. I don't have many friends...much less than many. I'm friendly with a lot of women, but it's hard to be friends, I guess. In mid-December I met a blogging friend, Krista, from Corn Rows and Meadows face to face. We spent a couple hours at a central location...and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was a bit of a reality check that I made the time and effort to meet her and yet, there are some ladies who live closer that I'd like to know more, too, that I haven't spent much time with. As much as I love my blogging friends (and yes, I have learned that real friendships can be developed...as weird as it sounds) real life is here...and important.
At some point soon my clothes will stop fitting...so I need to either stop eating or start exercising. I love food...so I guess I need to exercise. Probably a few more fruits and vegetables would be good for me too...since I don't like them much.
Most importantly I need to be spending some time with God. Daily. (And yes, before I wrote this post today I did spend some time with Him.)
Feel free to ask me how any of these are going...at any given time.
