We are nearly two weeks into the new year and so far I think I've done alright on keeping my resolutions. I know I'm a little late in posting about my resolutions, but I think putting them on here will give me an extra boost of accountability. So here we go!
1. I want to be healthier this year. That means less store bought junk food and more home made, wholesome foods. This should be fairly easy while I'm home, but once I get back to dorm life I'll have to be more creative. Being healthy also mean that I need to exercise on a more consistent basis. I have become a master of sporadic workouts. I really would like to get into running because it's something I can do wherever I am. My goal is to run three miles every week at first and then increase as time goes on. Lately my asthma has been acting up, so for me this is a pretty realistic goal.
2. I want to be more joyful. I am so blessed in so many ways and there is absolutely no reason for me to  be pessimistic or negative. This summer I let myself harbor a lot of resentment and bitterness. It's gotten to the point where I get so irrationally irritated at the drop of a hat. I can't live like that. It makes other people feel bad and it makes me hate the way I act. So that has to change.
3. I want to go deeper in my spirituality. My best friend and I are going to keep each other accountable and do a devotional together. Sometimes I let my priorities get out of whack and I put the silliest things before my relationship with God. I need to put him first, because that it what makes all the difference in my life.
4. I absolutely HAVE to pick a major this year. I am currently on my third major and I know that I want to change it again. I feel like I am constantly changing my mind and I'm in my second semester of my sophomore year and there is just not enough time for me to change it again. When I go back to school next fall I have to start working my final major. No more changing. Thankfully I have this semester abroad to think of what I want to do and make a decision, but after April, there will be no more changes, no more turning back. I want to graduate on time and this has to get done. There's not really a choice on this one.
5. I want to love more. Love my family, love my friends, love people, life, everything. I want to cultivate passions and deepen relationships and ll of that requires me to love more.
