Clean

It’s a new Year and I have been thinking about New Year resolutions… a lot of thinking.

I want to come up with a list of things to accomplish.  The list would include different areas of my life and then I’d plan to cross things off and feel stronger/better.  I love the crossing off as much as the list making.  But not this year.  This year I want the list but at the same time I don’t.

If there is one thing I’m slowly starting to learn its that I don’t need a spotless house or  make-up on to feel I’m doing what I should be.  Our suitcases from Christmas are finally unpacked after arriving home nine days ago.  They still aren’t put away in the basement..but we’re unpacked.  That’s okay.

I love to dream of big goals for the future.  But, right now I’m learning to do something different.  I’m learning to be okay on the days I never change out of my yoga pants.  (Not because I do yoga, just because they’re the most comfortable thing I own!)  Maybe it’s the recent Dr appointments and sickness that give me a new perspective.  Or maybe this lesson has been waiting for me and I’ve just slowed down enough to realize it. 

I will enjoy this day.

  1. Well said, Liz, we all need to learn to enjoy this day. “This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice in it.” I know I have a tendency to get so busy, that I don’t enjoy this day as God meant for me to enjoy it. I think we have to constantly remind ourselves to pause, take a breath, and just enjoy the moment.
    Oh yeah, by the way, that is one cute little frog 🙂
