New Years Resolve

Happy 2012!
We're coming to the end of January, but I haven't blogged for a ages, mainly due to January exams and the madness that is Christmas and New Year. Although it's a bit late in the day, i thought I;d share with you all my New Year's resolutions.

This year, I resolve to:

1) Love

I will spend time act day getting to know Love. I will prioritise Love above anything else, placing Him as the centre of every activity and the motivator for every action and reaction. As I get to know Love better, Love will teach me to love myself fully and completely, and most importantly, teach me how to love others as fully and completely as I love myself. God is Love.

I will treasure time as something precious, valuable and finite, and will dance in each moment of it as freely as I can, realising that I will only get that moment once. I will see new sights, smell new smells and receive new thoughts and ideas with reckless abandon. I will open my heart to peace, joy, unselfishness, humility and courage, and close my heart to pride, hatred, bitterness, worry and self-righteousness.


I will try to see the bright side of every situation, and dig deep enough to find laughter in the little things, and share the laughter with others.


I will let Love grab hold of regret and bitterness, and take instead wisdom, understanding, and knowledge of lessons learnt. I will choose to view setbacks as stepping stones, and welcome criticism as a way of refining me. I will choose to be welcoming of information from others,  viewing everyone as someone who has something valuable to teach me, regardless of age, colour or religion. I will choose to learn to open my mind in order to learn how to close it to things that are harmful or not useful to me.

So, those are my resolutions. They're non specific, but they are real, and I'll  try to remember them as I go throughout this year. What are your resolutions?

Peace, Love and Hair grease folks xx
