Resolutions for the New Year
---First published on stephen-blog.com when I used that site--- I was planning on posting this much earlier, but sickness, forgetfulness, and simply me postponing this kept me from doing so. In earlier years I don't think I really took this seriously. I had some serious resolutions, but I also made some silly ones. This year I only intend to resolve only what I truly resolve to do. I resolve to love, obey, and serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ more and more. This is by far the most important goal! I resolve to excel in my homeschooling. This is also very important and will surly affect the rest of my life. I resolve to schedule my time well. Have you ever noticed time flies very fast? I have! I'm already 16 and will soon be 17. That is sometimes hard for me to believe. When I have a good schedule I notice I get much more done than when I don't have a good schedule. I resolve to develop more self control... ...in all areas of life, but especially in sticking to my schedule. Having a schedule but not using it seems very silly. It certainly requires self control to keep from getting distracted, fight laziness, and focus on what needs to be focused on. I resolve to post on this blog at least once a month. This month I almost didn't get a post! I resolve to keep seeking God's plan and calling for my life. Seek and you will find! Well, that's basically it. Other than the posting once a month resolution I haven't really posted very specific goals. However, if I do what I've resolved in the above resolutions, I think that my more specific goals will be easily attainable. What are your goals for this year?
