I love yearly milestones: Birthdays, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are my favourites. I’m pretty satisfied I was born in August–conveniently 5 months from New Year’s Eve–because reflection on my birthday week and New Year’s are important to me. I combed through some of my old journals the week of NYE and found one from my 22nd birthday. I started a list of things that inspire me and a list of things that bring me down. I affectionately call exercises like this “lifestyle design.”
At the end of my life will I be happy with the days I lived? Will I wish I spent a little less time on your Facebook albums and a lot more time sharing dinner with people I love? A little less time thinking about how I don’t measure up and a lot more time in the Bible reminding myself I do? I wanted to stop and dwell on what I truly love about the beautiful life God has given me. So here you go. In 2013, this is my plan: yes to more of the things that fill me up, no to the things that do not. If you’d like to reflect and blog something similar, please leave your link in the comment section! I’d love to check it out.
ALSO. TODAY IS MY ONE THOUSANDTH BLOG POST.
Five years in the making.
PS. I’d love to hear from you today – how long have you been reading my blog? What part of the world are you from? I’d like to know. Comment if you’re feelin’ friendly.
