New Years Resolutions
This year, I’m uncomfortable enough to seek change…the old Steve Brown saying applies;
“When pain exceeds payoff, positive change occurs.”
Too much pain and very little payoff have me investing some thought and time into making positive change.
So…here’s what I’ll start tomorrow.
1. Dedicated prayer time and a prayer journal.
If you’ve followed the blog for any length of time you know I find prayer to be the great mystery of Christianity. It just doesn’t seem to make a difference, but the Bible claims it does. I aim to find out.
2. Intentionally unplugging on a regular basis.
My technology owns me…and it demands all my time and attention. My job this year is to control it and make it my tool and not my taskmaster.
3. Intentionally caring for my physical, spiritual, and emotional health.
The tyranny of the urgent and constant stream of instant news via social media are joy killers…and without joy all health is compromised.
4. Create more time for relationships that matter.
Cyber friends are great…but they’re gone when you turn off the computer. I need to care for and be cared for by the people who are there when it’s off.
That’s my plan…do you have one?
