NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS...BAH HUMBUG...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

I stopped making NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS decades ago...

 

It was then that I first realized...THEY WERE A BIG WASTE OF TIME...!!!

 

Oh, no doubt, my desire to improve over the past year was and remains a perennial instinct...as, I’m sure it does with most who read this...INSTEAD...

 

I decided it was more practical and reasonable to take it ONE DAY AT A TIME...!!!

 

That is when I began to notice the most improvement in my life...Oh...I’m not saying those around me would necessarily notice or certify or agree that I HAVE BECOME A BETTER PERSON...NO...But in my heart I was building a life on solid rock and not on shifting sands...!!!

 

IT WAS THE SIMPLE THINGS THAT MATTERED...

 

Recognizing and owning my personal flaws and shortcomings, admitting to my self and my God my imperfection(s), seeking HIS LORDSHIP over me and my sphere of influence, expressing my willingness to follow HIM daily and moment by moment, AND TRUSTING HIM instead of my own intelligence or feelings...!!!

 

YES...No New Year’s resolutions, no preconceived notions, no goals too lofty to attain, just a simple RESOLVE AND TRUST to LET HIM MOLD ME into the best person I was intended to become...!!!

 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND A GREAT START TO 2018...!!!

Hi Fran.  I saw this on the Anthony Acosta - ALLATLANTACONDOS.COM reblog.  I'm not a big fan of New Years resolutions since I look at every day as a fresh start.  Why wait, right?  We all need to resolve to be the best we can be every day.  Happy New year.

Hi Fran, I do not make new year's resolutions. I live day by day walking with my Jesus. Thanks for sharing your thoughts today.

Fran, this pretty much describes me as well. I basically make new resolutions almost everyday to improve myself.
