New Year’s {Revolution}

I love the AT & T  “It’s not complicated” commercials. My favorite is this one. Go ahead and click to watch it. It’s short. And funny.

Speaking of candy…

I saw this list and decided it would be my Revolution starting point:

resolution guide

1. A bad habit I’m going to break: staying up way too late!

2. A new skill I’d like to learn: Photoshop!

3. A person I hope to be more like: Eric–he always gives everyone an “A”. He is a great encourager.

4. A good deed I’m going to do: Send a care package to some missionary friends.

5. A place I’d like to visit: Atlanta–I love the “big” city. Anniversary trip? Maybe!

6. A book I’d like to read: The Art of Possibility by Zander.

7. A letter I’m going to write: Anonymous notes of encouragement.

8. A new food I’d like to try: Is there any I haven’t tried? I’ll have to think about this one. Maybe just more jellybeans. I love jellybeans.

9. I’m going to do better at: letting go of the small stuff!

O.k. I’ve shared my list. I’d like to hear yours! Feel free to leave a comment and share all nine or just one.

    I found your blog through your comment on Holley Gerth’s blog. I love this idea of a New Year’s Revolution! Here’s my list…

    1. A bad habit I’m going to break: Diet coke. I’m determined (as I sit here with a can in front of me) to do it for good this year!

    2. A new skill I’d like to learn: photography

    3. A person I hope to be more like: my Dad! Generous, funny, hard working and a great listener

    4. A good deed I’m going to do: Weekly cards to my niece & nephew

    5. A place I’d like to visit: I always wanted to visit Nashville, TN

    6. A book I’d like to read: Oh, there’s soooo many…The Book Thief

    7. A letter I’m going to write: Anonymous notes of encouragement. (I’m going to borrow this idea, hope you don’t mind!)

    8. A new food I’d like to try: I think I’ll try Sushi. I’m a pretty picky eater, but I’ll try it.

    9. I’m going to do better at: being my authentic self!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

      Michelle,

      I LOVE your list! Funny, your nine things could have been mine, too. (except #5– I lived in Nashville for 6 years. It is a great city to visit!) Glad you’re inspired. Happy New Year!

    Stacy, just found and am enjoying your blog. I’m a homeschooling mom too and am trying to walk closer with God every day. So I appreciate those who share their journeys with God to encourage others. Keep up the good work. Bad habit to break: focusing on the negatives. Thing I want to do better at: finding the blessings anywhere they can be found and letting God lead as He will. Take care and God bless. (sweetlybrokengirl.blogspot.com) p.s. Loved your jelly bean answer. Made me smile.
