Today is my Resolution

A resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something, the act or process of resolving. Guess most of our resolutions turn out to not be so firm. Mine are far from firm. In fact, they're just plain...mushy.

I love new beginnings. I dare say that no one loves making New Year's resolutions more than I, but my track record with them is not so great. And I know the reason why. My response when faced with the decision to follow through with my resolution is...tomorrow. Not exactly what one would consider resolve.

Although my resolutions have been "epic fails," I'm not ready to give up on them. So I've decided this year's resolution is to give up my response of  "tomorrow" and instead resolve to say, "today."

I read last night in Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey that one of the most important things to do with our goals is to write them down. So, there. It is written. This year I resolve to say...today.

With that being said, I'm off to my first "today" thing. And nope...not going to spill the beans just yet.

I pray that 2012 is our best year yet. Face it with grace! Happy New Year, everyone!
