However, this year I took a new approach. Instead, I determined that the "R" word when equating it to a yearlong, best-intention, would represent a Recommitment, a Refocus, a Renewal ~ to my overall health and happiness.
First focus: Since I'm taking this resolution thing in stages, I decided to start with my Health, which was fairly easy as our church pastor leaders kicked off 2012 with a series of messages using a popular brand of margarine, but changed the word at the end to reflect "I Can't Believe I'm Not BETTER!" They partnered with the local YMCA to bring trainers in for a six-week Boot Camp! Never in my life have I desired to be "pushed" into exercising, nor being accountable for such angst at 6 a.m. But for the six weeks, everyday that my scheduled allowed, I attended each session and made muscles hurt that I didn't even know I had. I deduced this as progress! Thus, a promise I made to myself to recommit to my health being fulfilled.
- There's no limit to God's ability to use ordinary people to do extraordinary things in His name.
- There's no "I" in "TEAM"
- You're either an ANT (Automatic Negative Thought) "killer" or you "AIN'T"!
- And as each point in a basketball game counts, so do the number of days we're given to make great things happen!
Stay tuned for Focus Three & Four and go make GREAT things happen!!
