Keeping the light to a minimum as to not totally send my circadian rhythm into a tizzy...I scan
There is just so many things out there that you can grab a hold of to get your new year off to a bang...
2014 things challenge
Just One Thing
Just one word
get in shape
hundreds of ideas.....millions even...it's overwhelming....it's overkill
I like the idea of many of them, but what can I realistically accomplish? What makes sense for who I am, how I live, distractability and just plain practicality?
in church today, we learned about choosing one thing and really committing ourselves to working on it.
For most of us, that one thing will be hard to pinpoint unless we are brutally honest with ourselves. It's just too easy to pick weight, health, read the bible.....all good stuff, don't get me wrong, but not soul shattering. I want to have my soul shattered. huh, what? Wow, guess I found my one thing.....I best be careful how I pray for that...lol
I am also attracted to the 2014 things challenge. http://kathilipp.com/pages/2014things/
Let's be honest, there is no way I am going to actually track what leaves/enters my house on a spreadsheet....oh, I would be awesome at it.......for about a week. lol. I decided on a better, more reasonable approach that I think I can actually be committed to......I can clean just one thing a week! A drawer....a shelf....a box.....52 in all. I am quite sure I have more than 52, but boy howdy, that will sure make a dent and a half in making my life more simple and less stressful! I have already cleaned out two shelves in my bathroom...one just a little while ago...insomnia....it's a good thing...not,
I am not gonna make a spreadsheet or a tally or take pictures..okay, not often with the pics, but I am committing myself to the process. I think I may even count emotional baggage too..no? Oh well, thought I could get a twofer with the soul shattering thing...lol
I still want to drop a few pounds and improve myself in lots of ways, but I think just letting go of stuff and being a better finisher are my evolutions this year. Lightening my loads, yep, sounds good and doable to me!
What will you commit yourself to this fine 2014?
