Goals > Resolutions


Let’s talk resolutions GOALS. I have thought about this a lot over the past couple of days. Someone at work asked me if I had any resolutions for the new year and I hadn’t really put much thought into it. After thinking about it, I realized I didn’t want to have any resolutions. When I think of resolutions, I think about how everyone challenges themselves to “eat healthier” or “get skinnier” or “go on a diet”

I wanted something more. So, I came up with a solution to my lack of a resolution 😉

I wanted a goal!



I didn’t know what I wanted my goal to be but I knew I didn’t want it to be about anything having to do with dieting.

When I was doing my quiet time with Jesus this morning, I kept getting distracted. I found myself finding excuses NOT to talk to God but to make my breakfast, then make my coffee, then talk to my family, then go to the bathroom, then do some laundry…

My mind was racing thinking it couldn’t get everything done unless I did it right there and then.


When I finally sat down to finish my quiet time I realized something, I am terrible at being present. My mind does not stop. I am constantly thinking about what to do next, eat next, and see next. I like to stay moving and feel lazy when I just lay around.

So, my goal for 2017 is be more present, to enjoy the exact second I am in, and to soak up everything around me. Whether I am watching TV, doing burpees at Crossfit, running, drinking coffee, or talking with God, I want to be in that moment. I am tired of becoming overwhelmed with all that I have to do that day, week, or month.

I want to be present.


And with that, I challenge you to be more present too.
