Last year, I discussed my take on resolutions. It wasn’t anything earth-shattering–the typical annual list of goals; you can see a few listed in the picture to the left.
I didn’t accomplish some of them to the extent that I’d hoped (we only had a few families over, versus the six stated in the resolution, for instance), but others (like the Mama Time-Out) were quite successful.
Since sharing my goals with others holds me accountable, here are a few of my 2016 resolutions. Not all are directly related to stewardship, but the trend does seem to be in the directions of being more mindful with my time–something that I want to improve upon in the new year.
Make one extra mortgage payment. This would obviously cut down on what we owe on our home. Not sure how we will get to this point, so please send me any tips you may have!
Journal and devotions daily. Next month, I will discuss an experiment on early rising I have undertaken. I hope to devote more time to journaling and time in quiet reflection during these early morning hours.
Screen time to four times daily. I find myself heading to my phone to do mindless browsing of social media and websites a ridiculous amount of times each day. I’d like to limit this to four times a day, for a maximum amount of 1 hour.
Invite six families to supper. Although we didn’t get this completely accomplished in 2015, it is a goal that is both reasonable and challenging, so I am keeping it for 2016.
What goals do you have for the new year?
