The Top New Year’s Resolutions, and why you should scrap them. First Post!

Happy New Year again! Okay…now that we have gotten that out of the way, let’s take a serious look at what comes next.

     You can’t go terribly far without running into this year’s top 10 New Year’s Resolutions. I have seen countless sites that have the same old list that we all love to try on like the pants we used to fit…ten years ago. I for one would love to just toss that list. I honestly don’t know how many years in a row you can try to eat right, lose weight, or drink less alcohol – for the first week or two of the year. Those things are totally possible, but they aren’t things that can be done quickly or easily. They are lifestyle changes that require a lot of will, help and discipline.

I would like to present my top 7…and no, they aren’t resolutions…they are more a list of things to focus towards. You can take them, make them your own, or toss them…that is your decision.

  1. My relationship with God is, and needs to be, number one in my heart. To do that, I need to be focused on His Word. (The link will go live January 5, 2019 at 10:35 pm MST) Read more here… 

  2. I want to be a part of a community of believers. This is hard to do in this busy life I lead, but I have found a way! Read more…

  3. Learn more about my spouse, his love languages and his interests. Read more…

  4. Practice self-care. This one is in two posts so here they are! 1 and 2 

  5. Learn more about my children and what makes them tick. Read more…

  6. Declutter…read more…

  7. Get organized! Read more…

      So, to find out more about each topic, click through and read the blog on that list item. There are so many things to say, it can’t be done all at once. I am looking forward to this year, and I hope you are too! — Anyalita

  1. It is interesting how so many common New Year resolutions focus on changing the outside appearance when these aspects produce very little happiness in the end. We do ourselves a favour and serve as a wonderful example to our children to focus on relationships and improving our character. Growth in these areas is truly where happiness is found. Your suggestions hit on this exactly.

    1. Thanks Rachel for your comment! I agree. At the end of the day…or at the end of this life we are living, the size of our pants or the size of our paycheck does not indicate what our worth will be in eternity. It is the relationships and our faith that sees us through.
