I have two resolutions this year. The first is to surrender to God, because if there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that He does what He wants and it’s always a better plan than I could have come up with so I might as well let Him take control and save some energy. The second is to lighten the ef up. This doesn’t mean abandon all responsibility or ignore the reality of what is going on in the world around me. It just means that on a daily basis, the way I live my life and interact with my family and friends, I want to find a lighter approach. I’m constantly up in my head or diving deep into my heart and it’s made me so heavy.

I couldn’t help but draft a list of goals and quarterly plans for achieving them, but everything I do will be checked and cross-checked against whether I’m surrendering what I’m doing and taking a light-hearted approach to doing it.

Happy resolutions, everyone.
