Last Years’ Resolutions?

Last year I made 5 New Years Resolutions. (Sorry this post is a little late.)

1. Get more exercise. (Moderate Success)

I did well until it started getting dark before I got home from work. I prefer to jog or walk the dog in the evening but we don’t have sidewalks so … I’ll start up again in a few months.

2. Commit to 1 hour a day for freelance. (Success!)

I’m pretty sure I’m averaging more than 5 hours per week although I don’t really keep track that closely anymore.

3. Memorize 2 verses a month. (Moderate Success)

I successfully memorized Psalm 103:1-19 but stopped there because it started taking too long to reinforce the first verses and keep adding new ones. Make sense? I enjoyed this but I’m not resolving to do it again this year.

4. Pray for 10 minutes a day. (Success!)
(focused 5 min. at 10am and 5 min. at 3pm)

This I did and has been a huge blessing. Not that it’s the only times that I pray, of course, but to always have those specific times for specific purposes has really worked out great. I’m adding 5 more this year. I have pop-up reminders on my computer and I stop what I’m doing for 5 minutes and then get back to work.

5. Read more books. (Fail.)

Why do I bother? This is NOT going back on my list this year. I’m just not enough of a book-reader to make time for it. I’d rather be doing freelance or laundry or crafting something with my hands.

How did you do with your resolutions last year?
