I've never been a New Year's Resolution type person. Making a resolution has always seemed so airy and non realistic. "Lose weight," "eat better," "budget wisely." All great things, I know. But do we get past the month of January successfully? Nope.
I love to reflect at this time of year. What was happening last new years eve? How far have I come as a person and in my relationship with God?
My husband and I took time when we were at the cabin last month to reflect on our marriage. We've grown so much together (if you personally know us, you definitely know this!). The biggest thing we realized is we want more rest in our lives. More quiet moments, more refreshing relief.
We began last month and have found those moments already well before the new year has rung in.
So this year, don't make empty promises to yourself. Be realistic. May you find yourself doing less, caring more, and finding true rest.
Happy New Years!
