I have created about 3 blog pages so far in my life and each time I never know how to write my first blog post. I always end up just describing myself in a short paragraph which after reading it a couple of times I end up deleting later.
This time I am totally going to make my first post meaningful and worth reading over and over again…….. well, at least I will try my hardest.
There are several things I could talk about in my first blog post but considering it is a new year I think it is appropriate to discuss my New Year’s Resolution.
Usually every year around this time I have a long drawn out list of resolutions that I end up not completing or accomplishing. Then by the end of that year I feel bad because I did not follow through with my resolution. Well, this year I thought about it and I have come to find out that there is no possible way I can accomplish about 80 resolutions in a year. I decided that if I’m going to complete a resolution I need to narrow it down to at least two. That way I can focus just on those two and not stress myself out by the end of the year.
So with that in mind, these are the two resolutions I have come up with…..
- The first is to work on my prayer life. This is not just in general. Usually when I pray I always do the same thing over and over again………I pray to benefit me. I’m always saying this, “Lord, you know my situation and my needs. I ask that you fix every situation and supply every need……” Then I go on into detail about that situation or need.
This year I don’t want to just pray for me. I want to intercede more for someone else. Everything is not always about me and my problems. Lately there have been so many in need of prayer and all I can think about is myself and my problems. I personally find this selfish of me so I decided this year I’m going to do something about this. I am making it a routine of mine to pray for someone else or intercede for someone else every time I get on my knees to pray even when I pray over my food. I am excited to see the results that this will bring forth.
- My second resolution has to do with my relationship with my boyfriend. My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year now. Because we have been dating for so long our families and loved ones are becoming a little anxious. This is usually the time period where a couple hears “When are you guys getting engaged” or “Are you guys going to get married soon” very often. My family along with his family have been really curious about our plans.
Now don’t get me wrong… I know my boyfriend, Terrell, is the one that I want to spend the rest of my life with but am I in a rush? No. I want to be sure that Terrell and I are ready. That has always been my excuse, we don’t want to rush anything or we are not ready. But I can’t always be “not ready”.
This brings me to my resolution.
I don’t really know when Terrell is going to “pop the question” (I mean what woman really knows what is going on in a man’s mind? *insert rolling eyes emoji here*) so I have to start preparing based on my prediction. This means from here on out I have to study and learn. I will be getting guidance from other women/wives and praying constantly. I have to practice now so that I can fulfil my wifely duties as soon as I have his last name, especially cooking (I’m dating a hungry man). I must learn to be that aid for him spiritually and naturally. I don’t want to go into this thing instantly lost and going downhill. So my resolution is to invest in learning how to be a wife for Terrell.
I want Terrell to have the best wife ever! Practice makes perfect!
So there it is! These are the two resolutions I am going to really focus on this year. Who knows, I might add another to challenge myself or if I complete them pretty early. I hope everyone who reads this has had a bless start to your year!
