New beginnings

This year started with the one and only 1/1/11. Now if that’s not a new beginning, I don’t know what is. However, how does one make a new beginning with the same old self?
One doesn’t. The only way to make a new beginning is to connect to the Creator, over and over again. So I don’t need 1/1/11. I just need to pay attention. When I worry, it’s time to pray. When I weigh too much, it’s time to ask the One who loves me more than I can even understand to help me make good food choices and have fun when I exercise that day. When I realize I miss him, it’s time to set a new habit. What changed since we were talking regularly? Where do I need to put the new habit schedule-wise. When I don’t have enough time, I need to ask him to show me the priorities, and then say the no’s. When I’m focused more on goals than relationships, I need to ask him to interrupt my mad dashing. And so on and so on. New Years Resolutions don’t work, but connecting with the Creator does.

Speak now or forever hold your peace!
