Its that time of year. Everyone feels like they have a clean slate and its the perfect opportunity to start something you want to accomplish. People make resolutions about all sorts of things, most of which revolve around looks and more specifically weight. My one and only resolution is really simple in concept but difficult in practice, be a better man. This means be a better son, brother, boyfriend and friend. Now how do I do that...I guess I'll have to figure that part out haha. Although I think a good start for me is in the Bible: [pullquote foo="bar" author="1 Timothy 6:11-16"] But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.[/pullquote]
Besides that being my resolution for the new year and really the rest of my life, I do have things I want out of this year that are less dramatic:
- Cook more/learn how to cook
- - Specifically I really want to learn how to make pad thai, my favorite!
- Read more
- - This is a general goal, but I am trying to read the whole Bible this year.
- Take more photos
- - Part of what this blog is for me; my creative outlet.
Thats it! Easy right? Definitely not, but thats the point of resolutions right? To pick something that will bring you closer to the person you want to be and thats not and easy thing. So I hope you guys are ready to keep me accountable to this!
