Hopefully I am not too late with this, I know most people have already posted their New Year’s Resolutions or the things they wish to change in 2010. This year I did not make a real list per say, but I did think about some things that I want to change, and that I want to do differently.
1. I want to be a better wife.
For me, this really includes a lot. My husband and I both being firstborn, we tend to both be very stubborn at times. I want to be less stubborn, and listen to my husband more. I want to submit as a good wife should, and let my husband take care of this family, without me interfering with everything. I also want to do a better job with the housework. I want to keep the house cleaner, be more organized, and just be a better housewife!
2. I want to be a great mom.
This is the year that my baby will be born. It’s hard to believe now that I only have 5 months left to prepare and get things in order for the baby. I have been thinking long and hard about what kind of mother I want to be, and how I want to raise my children. There is so much I want to do and so much I want to teach them. I know no mother is perfect, but I do want to raise my children to love the Lord, to be polite and have good manners, and to have integrity. I want to be there for my kids when they need someone, and I also want show my love for them as God’s Word says by disciplining them when they misbehave. Only with God’s help can I become a great mom!
3. I want to finish the things I start.
For some reason my whole life, I have never been able to finish some of the things I have started. I never noticed the pattern until after college, and I looked back and saw everything I wanted to do, but never finished. I don’t want the rest of my life to be that way. I want to finish the things I have started, and not look back at all the things I was afraid to do.
4. I want to establish what my hopes and dreams are and achieve them.
My whole life I have had hopes and dreams of things I want to do or achieve. Some of them I have started towards, and others I have been too afraid to start. Over the years, my hopes and dreams have changed, some changing because I changed my mind, and others because I found other interests. I want to establish what I want to do in life, and go for it. I want God to show me, what he has for me, and what he wants me to do, and then I want to work to achieve those goals, hopes, and dreams.
5. I want to make a difference.
I have always been one of those people who wanted to make a difference in other’s lives. Either by encouraging someone, praying with them, or even through writing in this blog. It’s hard to say if the things you do make a difference, because most of the time you will never know that you have made a difference in someone else’s life. I want to make a difference somewhere or in someone as much as I can. I love to help people, and I hope that God will show me how to make a difference in people’s lives this year!
