I’m not making resolutions, but I spent fifteen minutes today thinking about the year ahead – keeping my expectations low, so if I change course or abandon them later in the year, or next week, I won’t mind.
- Take more photos.
Take photos of the ordinary, everyday moments of my life.
Be bossier and make my family pose for more flattering photos.
- Print some of the photos. Send them to my mom.
Even if they are bad.
- Figure out how to transfer fifteen years of snapshots
into a digital format.
- Be more generous.
As much as I can, show grace to those who need it.
- Let go. Forgive.
Let go of bad relationships. Without anger or regret.
Disengage from commitments that I dread.
- Show people I love them.
Send cards to the people who care about cards.
Post on the FB walls of people who care about FB.
Send my son a care package at least once each semester.
- Leave my house more often.
Talk to strangers at church.
- Think of a regular Sunday blog topic.
- Get a physical.
- Celebrate more special occasions with my daughter.
With pie, cake, or small presents.
Make up holidays if needed.
That’s all I could think of in fifteen minutes.
I think the seventh will be the most challenging for me. It’s weird (even to me), but I am more likely to talk to strangers in the grocery store or library than I am at church. I’m fairly certain that 7b will be the first item dropped from this list.
I’m still looking for input about my Sunday posts.
Here is an unrelated photo, which I took yesterday. (Day one of taking more photos – success!)
