Ah, New Year resolutions. Time for you and 200 of your closest friends to bum rush the treadmill at the YMCA and buy up all the green vegetables at Whole Foods. Man, I’ve been there….nearly every year since I was a wee teenager. But this year, I’m trying something new.
My resolution is this: I am going to blog more.
Now, to do that, I am going to have to do other things less. Namely, binge watch Netflix shows. (Darn you, Netflix, and your thousands of time-sucking TV series.)
What am I going to blog about? Anything I want to and, more importantly, anything that is laid on my heart.
This morning, I thought about having a theme for each day. After running through a ton of options I narrowed it down to just doing a theme on Mondays (Music Mondays) and Fridays (Freedom Fridays). That leaves the other days of the week open for inspiration.
I don’t do that enough….leave room for inspiration, that is.
You see, I love to plan. I am a self-proclaimed Type A personality. But, I have come to learn over the years that not everything in life is best run by my Type A tendencies. Inspiration usually hits me when I planned to do something else entirely.
So, I’m meeting myself in the middle. (See how I’m following my own advice in my last blog post and giving myself grace? Go me!) I planned some topics and left room for others to come out of the woodwork.
I’m going to convince myself that this life is not either/or.
Welcome to 2015….the year of both/and.
