The New Year.

I have been thinking about resolutions.  New Year’s resolutions have never been something to which I give much thought but lately I keep returning to the thought of setting them.  With a little self reflection, I have landed on one resolution: to be present where I am.

I feel like I spend a lot of time fast forwarding to the next thing.  I do this at work, by planning dinner in my head.  I do this when cooking, by dreaming of a new kitchen.  I do this by driving too fast to get to the next event.  I sit in Bible study and think if the things I need to do when I get home.  I am constantly racing to the next thing.  But I find that when I can keep from racing, life is better.  Conversations are sweeter.  Friendships become deeper.  I get to know my husband a little bit more, rather than the status of all of my facebook friends.  I am going to race forward less, and be more aware of where I currently am.  May it be so.
