I've got a couple of new ventures going on right now that I'm pretty excited about. It all centers around bettering myself and I feel like it fits in perfectly with January and kicking off the new year.
For the Soul
Our pastor challenged us the other night to read the Bible from cover to cover. It's always been something I've wanted to do and believe me, I've tried a few times, but I've always given up around Exodus. Sad, huh? Well I'm hoping this time goes a little differently. I feel like I'll have a little better shot this time since there will be a higher level of accountability. If you want to follow along from week to week, you can get the breakdown of the schedule here.
For the Body
As part of my quest for fertility (It sounds fun when worded that way doesn't it? It's not.) I've decided to make a change in my diet. As of yesterday, my husband, Ethan and I are only eating whole foods. No preservatives, no fast food, and making the slow change to all organic. I'll expand on this more later on as I'm sure I will want to make it into a full post.
For the Mind
I recently changed my "about me" section because it said things that were no longer true, like when I described myself as "an avid book reader". Um, yeah, I can't remember the last time I picked up a book until here recently. It's funny how we change so much and so quickly that our own "about me" sections, written by us, can be so untrue by the following year. Well, I've decided to get back on the reading train although I'm not back to describing myself as an avid book reader just yet. Along with the Bible, my husband and I are also reading the Love and Respect book to strengthen our marriage even more. I will also pick back up my "just for fun" books that I put down months ago.
I know January is almost over, but the year has just begun. I can't help but be excited about what all this year might hold. I'm excited about all of the changes I'm hoping to make this year and can't wait to see what type of person I will be by the time 2013 rolls around.
