I've had a couple of weeks to think about it, and I feel good about my list. I don't normally do anything formal about resolutions. The one from last year (or was it the year before?) about memorizing Phillippians didn't go past a few verses. For me, at least this year, these are just items that I want to keep in the back of my mind. I could make SMART (specific/measurable/attainable/relevant/timed) goals, but I really don't want another to-do item to have to worry about.
So, here they are...
1) Reconnect with old friends. It's been too long. I'm the worst about keeping up. I think it's out of fear of losing them, seeming boring, seeming depressing. This bad habit probably ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's soo hard for me, though. Gotta break the cycle, though. Maybe I'm just avoiding making a SMART goal around it because I'm so scared about actually doing this goal.
2) Read a few Bible verses at least once a week some time during work. That's actually decently SMART. Everything, even going to a normal job, can be an act of worship when it's done with the intent of honoring God. I want to conduct myself in a way that honors him by working hard, being kind and looking out for my co-workers in the process, and doing everything with integrity. The verses can help to re-focus me periodically amidst the craziness.
3) Move more. I realized late last year how bleh I feel after sitting non-stop for a few hours at work. I want to incorporate standing up every now and then. After work, I normally veg in front of the tv to eat and then decompress. I want to do a bit of weights or cleaning up around the apt while watching. Aids in digestion and keeps all of the metabolic processes humming like they should.
And that's all, folks. 3 is simple, and it's cool that they happen to cover all 3 areas - social, spiritual, and physical.
