What is Frankly Friday?
Let’s define Frankly shall we…
. . .
I can not believe that 2012 is almost over.
It seems like only yesterday i was making a list of things i was going to accomplish in 2012 and i was going to stick with it and actually do something this year. Meh.
Here is the funny thing about resolutions: most people never accomplish them. Why is that?
Why do we make these lists with things we would like to do or not do and then complete them for maybe a month before realizing “hey this is too hard, or too complicated, or too much work, and i quit”.
The truth is: i don’t want to be a quitter.
I was raised to not quit, you stick it out and suck it up and make it through what ever obstacle comes your way and if you need help–you ask for it.
Yet when it comes to actually being consistent in bettering myself…i fall short.
Why is that?
I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and have come up with a few
reasons excuses i use to get out of this whole but i made a resolution thing.
Pretty simple right? You make a list of things you want to change, do better, accomplish, go see, listen more of, do less of, etc that it is simply overwhelming at points. I fear that i won’t be able to accomplish what i’ve set out to do, i fear that i’ll disappoint myself and others, i fear…i fear…i fear.
Fear has been captain of my ship for far too long.
I no longer want to fear failing or disappointing others (or myself).
I no longer desire to measure out my successes against anything but what God has in store for me.
I also know that while this is easy to say it can be an absolute JOB to accomplish.
So while i may not conquer fear every day in 2013 I vow to make it less of a foundation within my life.
So do i really want to change?
Yes. I do.
It will require effort and A LOT of motivation and kicks in the toosh.
. . .
So ladies & gentlemen i plan to make a list and share it January 1, 2013 of some things i will do my best to accomplish in 2013. Will they be resolutions? No. They will be aspects of change that i will weave into my daily life…no more resolutions, more living.
