Skipping New Year’s Resolutions And Instead Focusing On Hopes and Wishes For 2014-Daily Delilah
Happy New Year! Time to tackle those resolutions, right? Not Delilah. She's skipping those resolutions and instead is focusing on her hopes and wishes for 2014.
What are you hoping the new year will bring? Delilah shares her thoughts on the year ahead.
A lot of people use the start of a new year to try and turn over a new leaf, to rid themselves of bad habits or shed unwanted pounds. My gym manager said the busiest month for membership sales is January, but by March most of the new members have already slowed their visits or stopped coming altogether.
I decided years ago that making resolutions or trying to change bad habits on New Year's Day was, for me, an exercise in futility. Now what I try to do is use the new year to "clean the slate" emotionally and start with a better attitude. I believe one of the greatest gifts of my faith is the promise in God's word that His love is "New every morning"... and that "Great is His faithfulness"... If this is true, that God's love in our life is new every morning, then so too should be our love for others and for mankind.
