New Year resolutions are made and broken just as fast as they are made. We usually want to exercise more, eat less, spend less, get more sleep, etc…Resolutions should be those improvements we can make in our lives that really can change us, not just physically, but spiritually. Here is a small list of resolution ideas for spiritual growth taken from the Benedictine Sisters of Florida:
10 Resolutions for a More Wholesome Life
You shall not worry. It’s unproductive.
You shall not be fearful. Most things we fear never happen anyway.
You shall not cross bridges before you come to them.
You shall only handle one problem at a time.
You shall not take problems to bed. They make poor bedmates.
You shall not borrow other people’s problems.
You shall not try to relive yesterday. Focus on what is happening right now and be happy now!
You shall be a good listener because some people do know more than you do.
You shall not become bogged down by frustration, for 90 percent is rooted in self-pity.
You shall count your blessings including the small ones.
I wish everyone a very beautiful 2020!
May God Bless You and Keep You! May His Light Shine Upon You! May the Divine Assistance be always with You!
A happy and blessed New Year!
Just recently discovered your blog while searching for “Catholic home decorating”. Even better when I receive the little refreshers from you about our Catholic faith. I’ve been trying to locate the 10 resolutions in a laminated prayer card form. I think I going to have to make one myself.
