Everyone else has been posting New Years' Resolutions and this year, for one of the first years, I am not really making any. However, my overall goal for 2009 is "health." Under that vast umbrella falls physical health, spiritual health, social health, work health, financial health... et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

I'm not sure what all that entails, but here are some things I've thrown into the general category of "health."

1. Being open to new people, new relationships, new friendships, and new situations
2. Pushing myself to pursue a more consistent time of personal devotion and worship.
3. Excercising! and cooking at home (not necessarily by myself--anyone is welcome!)
4. Continuing to build on old friendships.
5. Pushing myself and the youth Messiah to grow and learn and stretch themselves.
6. Learning to build a savings that doesn't get depleted in any small "emergency."

Of course, there are lots of others that could fall into the category of "health" and perhaps as the year goes on, I'll share a few more of my "health" goals and how things are going and working out.

I think 2008 was a great start to the beginning of a "healthy me" and I hope 2009 is a continuation of building up on that.

Here's to 2009!

blessings on the pursuit of health! you're probably a pretty healthy person to start with, but reaffirming wholistic health goals is always a positive thing!

Love this (and your comment on my resolutions post)! I need to be better about focusing on all aspects of being healthy, instead of just being obsessed with calories and losing pounds. Yay health!
