Resolution for Women

I haven’t quite got around to making my New Year’s resolutions quite yet… nothing I really feel like changing other than getting a maid to wash my sheets and clean my floors. Hah!

I have a few goals in mind for the year, maybe writing them to you will encourage the follow through:

  • Learn Project Management and jump into a new chapter at my big girl job. Don’t get me wrong, I love my yob [that IS a Y] and the people I work with, but after four years things get a little… eh? Not that I am bored at all, work is quite busy and new technology is always on the move.
  • Save enough $$$ before December to not have to use one ounce of credit for our Ski trip. My sweet girl boasted just last night about how she purchased 4 shirts from one of her favorite stores for less than $50, because two shirts at regular price would have been more than $50. Frugal chick in the making, I love it.
  • Raise funds for my 39.3 mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer before the event gets here, only four months and $1,080 to go! I would love for you to support me and my team, Band of Bosoms, by donating here. We are also looking for gold [$500] and silver [$250] level sponsors.

Have you ever been in a spot where you had no idea what was going on, like nothing is moving, nothing is happening, you are just living. It is so empty. This is where I have been the past couple of months, wondering what is God’s plan for me in this season? This Christmas, I asked for the book The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shrier, it was written in partnership with the movie Courageous. It’s time for me to dive deep within and find out about the wonderfully feminine woman, wife, mother, daughter and friend that God has called me to be.

So far I have resolved to be quick to listen and slow to speak, which is not easy for me AT ALL because most of the time I hear but do not listen. It is one of my current character flaws [and I'm working on it], sometimes I go through the day not paying attention to what is important just to get to the next place, next agenda item, next anything that I am not currently involved – it’s a security blanket, a mute choice that I have kept up since I was young.

How about you? Have you read the book? What resolution are you looking forward to coming to fruition this year? I would love to hear from you… I would love to pray for you too! We are going on this journey together, friend! Bumps ahead, hope you have a helmet.

    [...] down ideas and listening to things that she likes and doesn’t like [I got this idea from an amazing book I'm reading]. She doesn’t live with us, y’all, so this is pretty difficult to get out [...]
