    Okay, I’ll go first!

    For the week 1 prompt, I wrote: The one thing I’d like to change is to be kinder to myself and to rest in God’s care more. I can be very hard on myself, and this year I want to learn to be happy instead of being so harsh with myself. That kindness also extends to being better about self care — from eating better and exercising more to taking more time to pray, read scripture and trust God rather than acting like I’m the one responsible for everything.

    I have actually made some real progress in this area. Larry and I have been going to the gym together, I’ve been praying more and allowing myself time to rest. I am seeking to trust God more. One thing He is revealing to me is that, for me, there’s a fine line between rest and lazy. Maybe its the return of favorite TV shows or maybe since it’s winter I can just call it hibernating, but I feel like I need to work on restoring balance and to not forget the work I should be doing. My next step will be to schedule time to be productive.
