In 2008, I will...
I will take the time to listen with the intent to truly understand what people are sharing with me. I will take a moment to consider how other people are feeling and try to see the world with their eyes. In this way, I will learn more about the people that I love and hate. I will thank the people that support me despite my tendency to take their efforts for granted.
I will shrink as I leave my pregnancy weight in my past. I will exercise for my physical and mental health. I will clean and organize my house. I will stop procrastinating and finish each chore or project that I start.
I will share what is on my mind and in my heart. I won’t keep my feelings inside until I’m too angry to fix my problems.
I will write to those that are in my heart but far away from me.
I will love as much as I can love without reservation or hesitation and I’ll proclaim it as often as I can.
In 2008, I will be the woman that I can and should be. I’ll be the wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend that I have the potential to be.
Thank you, God, for another year and another opportunity.
