How to decide from the list of 1.2 million things that I need to change in my life what should go on the official list of resolutions... Should it be getting up earlier or maybe going to bed earlier? Or maybe getting back to running or doing more planks or any at all or at the least eating fewer cookies? Should it be playing with my kids more, organizing our day more, or undoing the tv habit? Should it be keeping my word more or saying no more or both? Should it be reading the Word every day consistantly or memorizing scripture or making the gospel a living part of our home? Should it be avoiding less all the many things I avoid: laundry, answering the phone, vegetables, dirty and clean dishes, conversation? The list goes on. And on. And the answer is probably all of the above. I'm overwhelmed by all the things I need to tackle and amazed at how adept I've become at making up excuses for why I don't need to. So pick one, or pick them all, or one at a time? 2011 was tough, and I can't say I'm not a little nervous about how I'll do in 2012. I feel pretty confident that I'm thinking about this all wrong, but I'm not sure how exactly to go at it. So I find myself, this New Year's Eve, a little more dazed than determined.
How about that for a bubbly blog entry... now I think I'll go eat some chocolate.
