Happy New Year

This year one of my resolutions is to write something every day. I might write on here or in a journal or in a letter, but I’m going to try to write. I don’t know why, really, but it seems like a challenge because for the last few years I’ve literally written almost nothing. I feel like keeping thoughts in your head is often a waste, so the only other option besides writing them is talking about them and I’m fairly certain my thoughts aren’t all that interesting.

My purpose of writing on here isn’t really for anyone to read it ( Hi Dad) but more for me to record it. The other thing is that I have resolved not to go back and read or reword or correct anything. So this will likely be a mess of poor grammar and if it weren’t for autocorrect, poor spelling too.

My second resolution is to perform three acts of kindness per day. I can’t say why, but I’ve been overcome with the feeling lately that big things need to change in my life. This is not because anything is wrong, but more because it needs to be more right. By the end of this year I would like my mind to be very far away from myself. This isn’t in contradiction of the concept of self-care...it is the extreme definition of it. Delighting yourself in God and caring for others—is the only way to pure joy (as far as I can tell). So... I can’t wait to see where this leads me.
