I Like Myself Better When I...

...worship authentically

...create things proudly

...educate whole heartedly

...mother intentionally

...immerse myself in His word faithfully

...pursue {physical, emotional, spiritual} intimacy with my husband joyfully

...exercise regularly

...serve sacrificially 

...capture beauty spontaneously outside frequently

...walk through days slowly simply purposefully daily

 ...write vulnerably

...cultivate relationships heartily

...exist musically

...make plans loosely

...dwell naturally

...abide biblicall unconditionally

I, like most people, find myself happier and more fulfilled when our days reflect my priorities. I going to fight for fuller, more purposeful days in 2013. A resolution of sorts. But a resolution wrapped in grace, as I've found those are the only kind that don't bruise and break me.

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." -Colosians 3:23

This is a lovely post. I too can only make "resolutions wrapped in grace."
