3…2…1… Resolution!

3…2…1… Resolution (introduction)

You know those things that everyone makes a fuss about at the end of every year, the thing where they pick one of the most seemingly impossible tasks and obsess with finishing it in 365 days? The thing where people swear up and down that they will do but by January 2nd it is already long forgotten and mentally (or physically) tossed away. These “things” are called Resolutions and they have been New Year’s tradition for years and years and years. It seems that many find more fun in making them and seeing who can break their promise the fastest than actually keeping up with a resolution. But the satisfaction of completing a New Year’s Resolution is a satisfaction many have never even experienced. Not. Even. Once. Resolutions have always meant a lot to me. Now I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but as a super organized, goal oriented borderline OCD freak, I just love the challenge of a deadline and a New Years Resolution is the ultimate challenge. I’m making this blog post into a three part series because yes I am THAT serious about resolutions. Plus someone has to know about all my super cool tried and true tricks for conquering the seemingly impossible Resolution. First you have to know what a resolution REALLY is. Then I’ll help you create one (or two, or a dozen) for the year. By that time you will be totally ready to learn how to grab your resolution by the reigns and ride it to success. I mean once again, not tooting my own horn *beep beep* but it has worked pretty marvelously for me in the past. Check back daily for each new post about how to turn your New Year’s Resolutions into New Year’s Results and make THIS year YOUR year.

Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out, just take another shot.

Thoughts of a confused heart

Love is a very complicated thing that most people want it. Why? Love causes you so much headache but who wants to be alone forever? Love isn’t suppose to be a stressful thing. When you look at movies love for the most part looks beautiful but in reality it isn’t. In the bible, it says love is patient, love is kind and it’s felt most when it’s genuine. But let’s go back to reality, love takes a lot of work. It doesn’t come over night but who wants to work that hard for one person when they can be replaced.

On the other hand, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side but the real question is, is it worth the risk? Should you stay or should you go? After you put all the work, heartache and stress into one person when is the time to leave or should you continue to put in the stress, heartache and work. When is enough, enough? When should you give up? Or should you give up? Is love still enough in this generation? Can you go off your parent’s relationship? Their relationship isn’t perfect either… Will you end up like them or can you learn from their mistakes? Sometimes you have to release to grow but in that time what if they move on and you end up realizing they weren’t the person for you.

Sometimes you wish God can just give you the answers but in reality he’s waiting on you to take the next move. He knows what he wants for you but he wants you to take the path. That’s the hard part! You’re scared to move because you don’t want to regret anything but sometimes you have to fail in order to grow. Being afraid holds you back from what’s for you but you just have to believe. You cannot be afraid to lose a person in order to grow if they love you they will wait; if not it wasn’t meant to be!

So the final question should you stay or release? Neither side is perfect, but is pushing through it helping or harming? They’ve both made progress but are they ready to be in a relationship where they have to share their throne? Are they ready to work through their problems together? Are they ready to depend on each other? They may be young but they have so much love for each other. They don’t have many people on their corner because of the back and forth but should that matter? Are they fighting to prove them wrong or fighting for themselves? The question again should they fight now or release and see where the future takes them? Not saying they’re going to wait on each other but just trying to go with the flow of life. They both have promising futures but are they meant to meet later on life or just to be good friends for each other for support?

So many questions with not many answers, sounds like life to me.
