Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

One of these days, I'll go to bed before 2

But that day is not today.

Two weeks suddenly feels like an incredibly small amount of time. I've got a pile of eyelet trim lying on my bedroom floor in rolls and tangles, and my mind is spinning with ideas for all this fabric.

But as for today, I dropped the ball on my January 1st Post.

Last year in church, Pastor talked about not making resolutions so that we may have our "yes be yes and our no be no" so I'm leaning toward no resolution at all. However, there are a lot of things I'd like to see happen this year.

So a year is 365 days. One down, so 364. For 365 days I Will Try

To keep my GPA at or above the 3.28 it is at right now.

To Live Healthier (physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally).

Be a better steward of my money.

To make amends in my relationship with God.

To look at myself as His creation, and not as my own mistake.

These are things that are going to take a lot of work, so I might as well throw in overcoming laziness and procrastination, too. My classes next semester aren't going to be a breeze, so there'll be a lot of work and a lot of library time. I have a weakness for mozarella sticks, and lane tends to have a pretty limited selection and I loathe going to the gym. I love shopping more than almost anything and I spend money carelessly unless I keep a tight leash on my budget. I've harbored some resentment and doubts about God off and on for a while, but it is something that I need to work on, so that's up there too.
Then there's all my self esteem issues that I'm going to try to let go on so that I can live up to what I'm supposed to be.

Then there's this:

This year, I want to Create. It's my word, if you will, for 2012. {So if the world ends in firey destruction in december, I'm going to be pretty bummed}. But give me crafts, give me arts, give me that Camera that I so desperately want, and beauty will become it.

So those are my goals for this year. Solid?

What are your resolutions? All...four of my readers. {Four followers! How exciting!}

Happy New Year. I hope you have a wonderful first week of the 2012.
